The Bowdoin event is in advance of the GMHC Spring Gala 2017, to be held in New York March 23, 2017, during which Peter Staley and Jes Staley will be honored alongside former President Bill Clinton. GMHC (Gay Men’s Health Crisis) is one of the world’s leading providers of HIV/AIDS prevention, care and advocacy.
