He was recognized by President Obama as a Champion of Change and was portrayed in an Oscar-winning film featuring his remarkable journey. As a passionate speaker, he advocates for equality and addresses vital topics including diversity, intersectionality, civil rights, and the striking parallels between the HIV and COVID-19 pandemics.

Jones currently works with UNITE HERE, the international union representing hotel, casino, food service, and restaurant workers. His keynotes resonate across many sectors – from a pharmaceutical firm crafting HIV treatments, to fundraisers focusing on community involvement, and enterprises celebrating diversity and LGBTQ pride.
