Cleve Jones, interviewed by Scott James

Mentored by LGBT rights pioneer Harvey Milk, Cleve Jones is an activist and author whose new memoir, ‘When We Rise,’ inspired an ABC TV mini-series of the same title. Rebecca Solnit said, “You could read Cleve Jones’s book because you should know about the struggle for gay, lesbian, and transgender rights from one of its key participants—but really, you should read it for pleasure and joy.” Armistead Maupin wrote of Jones, “Some people witness history; other actually make it happen.” Hear Jones’ personal telling of nearly four decades at the heart of the gay rights movement, and learn about his latest work in activism.
