Gerald Kraak (1956–2014) was a passionate champion of social justice, an anti-apartheid activist and the head of the Atlantic Philanthropies’ Reconciliation and Human Rights Programme in South Africa. He authored two books, including the European Union Literary Award-winning Ice in the Lungs (Jacana, 2005), which explores South African politics, and directed a documentary on gay conscripts in the apartheid army. He will be remembered for being kind and generous, delightfully irreverent and deeply committed to realising an equal and just society for all.

Revolving around a group of students who are caught up in South Africa's political uprising in 1976, this novel focuses on the parallels drawn between apartheid and experiences in Stalinist Greece. It is a moving story of bravery, betrayal, and unrequited love in which the despair and danger of the characters' lives mirror each other.

While Mda’s satirical novel focuses on transgressive interracial sexual desire, Kraak’s realist text explores same-sex desire and intimacy.

Through a comparative reading of Zakes Mda’s The Madonna of Excelsior (2002) and Gerald Kraak’s Ice in the Lungs (2006), the article examines how apartheid’s Immorality Act functioned as the legislative mechanism to produce and police heteronormative whiteness. The randomness and unpredictability of sexual desire in both historical novels expose the tenuousness of this idealised heteronormative whiteness that lay at the centre of the apartheid project. While Mda’s satirical novel focuses on transgressive interracial sexual desire, Kraak’s realist text explores same-sex desire and intimacy.

Remarkably, Kraak also found the time to write a novel, ‘Ice in the Lungs’, which was the joint winner of the 2005 EU Literary Award and to direct a landmark documentary, ‘Property of the State: Gay Men in the Apartheid Military (2003)’. When Kraak became part of the funding sector in the mid-1990s, very few donors were willing to support the then-nascent LGBTI movement. Gerald Kraak thought differently.

Gerald Kraak was a friend, ex-boyfriend but above all a comrade to me and many others. As one of the leaders and organisers of the Committee of South African War Resisters in exile, Gerald helped divide white youth conscripted to the Apartheid army. Before that he was active in NUSAS in Cape Town. He wrote a widely acclaimed novel Ice in the Lungs and a standing joke between us was that I did not read the novels of friends. On many issues, we did not agree but he would always turn to me for advice related to work. Gerald’s work, love, activism, intellectual contributions and personal generosity lives on in all of us.
