Mime for Joseph Jefferson. Lest we not forget...

Joseph Jefferson was a 26-year-old New Yorker who graduated from Harvey Milk High in 2002, worked at Gay Men of African Descent on HIV prevention, and is described as an "advocate for LGBT youth". Jefferson committed suicide by hanging this past October 2010, becoming the latest victim of the recent spate of LGBT teen suicides. Community activists quickly organized a fundraiser for the cause of LGBT teen suicides titled STOP THE MADNESS, held at the LGBT Center in New York.
