About this title


Jones brings to life the magnetic spell cast by 1970s San Francisco, the drama and heartbreak of the AIDS crisis and the vibrant generation of gay men lost to it, and his activist work on labor, immigration, and gay rights, which continues today. As did thousands of young gay people, Jones moved to San Francisco in the early 70s, nearly penniless, finding a city electrified by progressive politics and sexual liberation. Jones dove into politics and activism, taking an internship in the office of San Francisco supervisor Harvey Milk. With the advent of the AIDS crisis in the early 80s, Jones emerged as one of the gay community's most outspoken leaders.

About the Author:

Cleve Jones' career as an activist began in San Francisco in 1970s where he befriended pioneer gay rights leader Harvey Milk. After Milk's death, Jones cofounded the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and conceived the idea of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which memorializes over eighty-five thousand Americans who have died from AIDS. He lives in San Francisco and works as a labor activist.
