In 2005-2006, Kearns was the Artist Director of Space At Fountain’s End where he curated and produced eighteen months of artistic expression including theatre, performance, jazz, fine art, photography, and poetry. Also in ’06, Kearns directed Lan Tran’s Elevator Sex (Off Broadway), The Tina Dance (throughout Los Angeles), and the twentieth anniversary production of Robert Chesley’s Jerker.

The City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department awarded Kearns with a COLA Fellowship to create a new work, Make Love Not War, that premiered in 2005. The COLA performances “represent a non-thematic cross section of very current work by some of Los Angeles’ best artists,” according to Noel Korten, Curator and Director of Exhibitions of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery.

Kearns has both directed and appeared in Jerker (Los Angeles, San Diego, Des Moines), and originated the role of Christopher, on stage and on video, in Pickett’s Dream Man (which has played New York City, San Francisco, Des Moines, L.A., Portland, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Edinburgh, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and London). Two revivals of James Carroll Pickett’s Dream Man (with American actor Jimmy Shaw) were directed by Kearns: at Madrid’s DT Espacio Escenico as part of the Festival Version Original (2005) and the Dublin Gay Theatre Festival (2007).

2005: He received a 2005 Robert Chesley Playwrighting Award.


2002: Playwrights’ Arena Award for Outstanding Contribution to Los Angeles Theatre.


1999: Received the Victory Award from the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund.


In 1995, Kearns began proceedings that resulted in his adoption in 1997 of a child. In a March 2013 appearance on The Howard Stern Show on Sirius XM Radio, Kearns admitted to affairs with actor Rock Hudson and Barry Manilow. He presently lives in Los Angeles with his daughter who was born in 1994.


In 1993, Kearns played the title role in Charles Ludlam’s Camille at Highways in Santa Monica, garnering rave reviews from the Los Angeles critics, as well as a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award nomination for his performance. “An actor giving the performance of his life,” said Richard Shelton, theater reviewer for the Los Angeles Times. In addition to winning a Drama-Logue Award and a Robby Award, he was nominated by the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle for Lead Performance. The artist has received numerous acting awards, including the 1999 Garland Award for his critically acclaimed performance in Robert Harders’ Bill and Eddie.

Long before coming out of the closet was considered a career move in the entertainment industry, Kearns was the first Hollywood actor on record to come out in the mid-seventies, amidst a shocking amount of homophobia. He subsequently made television history in 1991 by announcing on Entertainment Tonight that he was HIV positive, and then in 1992, as an openly HIV-impacted actor, guesting on a segment of ABC TV’s Life Goes On in which he played a character who had the virus. He played Cleve Jones in the HBO adaptation of Randy Shilts’ And the Band Played On, appeared in A Mother’s Prayer, It’s My Party and had a recurring role on Beverly Hills, 90210… a variety of shows that depicted HIV/AIDS.


1987: American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Southern California, Lesbian and Gay Rights Chapter, award plaque.


Kearns directed and co-produced the Artists Confronting AIDS’ landmark productions of AIDS/US in 1986, AIDS/US II in 1990, and AIDS/US/TEENS in 1994. He co-founded the S.T.A.G.E. (Southland Theatre Artists Goodwill Event) benefit, now in its 22nd year. He served as Artistic Director of Celebration Theatre for their 1986—87 season and of Artists Confronting AIDS for a decade, from 1984—1994.


Kearns was born in St. Louis, Missouri. As a young man he attended the Goodman School of Drama in Chicago, Illinois, and graduated in 1972 and moved to Los Angeles. For more than 25 years he has been active in the Los Angeles art and politics communities, maintaining a mainstream film and television career with a prolific career in the theatre. His activism is deeply integrated into his theatre works, and he has received grants from the City of Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, the Brody Foundation, and PEN Center USA West. In 1984, along with playwright James Carroll Pickett, he co-founded Artists Confronting Aids (ACA), and is a current commissioner of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).
