LAT: Cleve Jones Sells his
Palm Springs Home for $380,000

This real estate news item appeared on May 17 in the Los Angeles Times:

AIDS activist and gay rights leader Cleve Jones has sold his Palm Springs home for $380,000.

The 1935 cottage-style home, in the Warm Sands area, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Including a one-bedroom guesthouse, the property has 1,956 square feet of living space. A flagstone-decked pool with a raised spa and the original flagstone barbecue are among outdoor amenities.

Jones, 56, conceived the Names Project Foundation's AIDS Memorial Quilt ... He was played by actor Emile Hirsch in "Milk" (2008). The initial meeting for the film about slain gay politician Harvey Milk was held in Jones' Palm Springs house.

The home had been listed at $399,000. ...

Just like former EQCA leader Geoff Kors, Cleve is wealthy enough to own a home in Palm Springs and an apartment in San Francisco, putting him in league with other A-gays. I'll remember that tomorrow when Cleve pontificates at the Harvey Milk Day events in the Castro, about how Harvey would have been railing against the out-of-touch A-gays at the Human Rights Campaign.
