Sonoma Speaker Series features talk with Cleve Jones



Author and AIDS and LGBT rights activist Cleve Jones will speak at the Hanna Boys Center on Monday, Oct. 2, 7-8:30 p.m., as part of the Sonoma Speaker Series.

Jones is a human rights activist, author and lecturer. He joined the gay liberation movement in the early 1970s, and was mentored by pioneer LGBT activist Harvey Milk and worked in Milk’s City Hall office as a student intern until Milk’s assassination in 1978. Jones co-founded the San Francisco AIDS Foundation in 1983, and founded The NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, one of the world’s largest community arts projects, in 1987.

His first book, Stitching a Revolution, was published by HarperCollins in 2000. Jones was portrayed by Emile Hirsch in Gus Van Sant’s Oscar-winning film, Milk, and was the historical consultant for the production. Jones led the 2009 National March for Equality in Washington, D.C., and served on the Advisory Board of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, which challenged California’s Proposition 8 in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Jones will be interviewed by Bart Magee, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist practicing in San Francisco for 20 years. He is the principal founder of Access Institute for Psychological Services and has been executive director since its inception in 2002. During the AIDS years in San Francisco he volunteered with the Shanti Project and provided emotional support to people with HIV/AIDS.

General admission tickets are $35. Go to www.sonomaspeakerseries.com.

Save the date! The Dec. 4. Sonoma Speaker Series will feature John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney & Pixar Creative Studios. Tickets will be on sale soon.
