Abstract

Cleve Jones is the founder of the NAMES Project, the organization responsible for the creation and exhibition of the AIDS Memorial Quilt. He moved from Phoenix, Arizona, to San Francisco in the early 1970s to become part of the city’s gay community. He was befriended by San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk, one of the nation’s first openly gay elected officials, who convinced Jones to give up film school to pursue community organizing.
