Cleve Jones visits Keystone College

LGBT activist and pioneer of the National Equality March in Washington D.C visited Keystone College to talk with students and community members.

LGBT activist Cleve Jones visited Keystone College in Northeastern Pennsylvania this past week. He spoke to 500 Keystone community members about various LGBT issues. Equality Advocates collected letters intended to ask state legislators to support HB 300 in addition to other legislation that would reinstate hate-crimes protection laws.

Jones’s visit was part of a three-day exhibit of panels of the NAMES Project Memorial Quilt, a project he created in 1985 to help honor and remember those who have died from AIDS.
