Grand Rapids LGBTQ History – AIDS Quilt Founder spoke in Grand Rapids in 1990

October 26, 2011

In 1990, the Grand Rapids Pride Celebration invited AIDS Quilt founder Cleve Jones to speak about his work to educate the public about HIV/AIDS.

Jones, who was a close friend of the late Harvey Milk, spoke with Bryan Ribbens about his experience of being in Grand Rapids in the video below.

This video, like many other archival materials, is part of the Grand Rapids People’s History Project and will be hosted online at a new wordpress site that will go live after our premier screening of the People’s History of the LGBTQ Community in Grand Rapids film on Thursday, November 17.
