biographies:
Born in 1954, Cleve Jones was among the last generation of gay Americans who grew up wondering if there were others out there like himself. There were. Like thousands of other young people, Jones, nearly penniless, was drawn in the early 1970s to San Francisco, a city electrified by progressive politics and sexual freedom. His career as an activist began in San Francisco when he befriended pioneer gay rights leader Harvey Milk. After Milk's death, Jones co-founded the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and conceived the idea of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which memorializes over 85,000 Americans who have died from AIDS. He lives in San Francisco and works as a labor activist.

Wayne Goodman is a local author of four novels, including most recently Vanya Says «Go!, and host and curator of several local reading series. He has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for 50 years (with too many cats). When not writing or working on events, he enjoys playing Gilded Age piano music by Women, Gay, and Black composers.
