Rev Joseph Gilbert - Activist
Rev Joseph led quite a colorful life - and worked to change those things with which he disagreed. Did you know:
He was sentenced to, and served, two years in prison for writing love letters to another man (not graphic or explicit). The post office declared them obscene and it is a federal crime to send obscene materials through the US mail.
He was instrumental in getting the lights on the California Capitol building to be green for St Patrick's Day.
