This is John Cleese's eulogy for his colleague Dr. Graham Chapman, delivered in the Great Hall at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London; Chapman died on this day in 1989.
Graham Chapman - one of the founding members of Monty Python - was one of the first celebrities to come out, and as early as 1972 gave financial and moral support to the publication Gay News. Chapman was survived by his partner of 23 years, David Sherlock, and their son John Tomiczek.
