Born in 1954, Cleve Jones was part of the last generation of gay people who grew up not knowing if there was anyone else on the entire planet who felt the same way he did. It wasn't until he was 14, flipping through the pages of Life magazine, when he saw the headline 'Homosexuals in Revolt!' followed by several pages of text and photographs of the new gay rights movement, including photos of men marching with fists in the air through the streets of Greenwich Village, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, that he understood that he was part of a larger community. With the onset of the AIDS crisis in the early 1980s, he emerged as one the gay community's most outspoken activists - a role that continues to today. This memoir brings to life the drama and heartbreak of the AIDS crisis - and the lost San Francisco and lost generation of men who came before it.
