CLEVE JONES, co-founder of the AIDS Quilt, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and collaborator of Harvey Milk, is a veteran labor, HIV/AIDS, and LGBT rights activist. He has been central in organizing the October 11th National Equality March which demands equal protection in all matters governed by civil law in all 50 states for all LGBT people.

“We will continue this fight in every state, in every county, every city and every town, but we are now determined to take this fight to the federal government, to our President Barack Obama, to the Congress and the Supreme Court of the United States.”
