*The nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization, the Human Rights Campaign, said Monday that it will honor Tony Award-winning choreographer and mentor Bill T. Jones with its Visibility Award, which recognizes those who shine a light on the struggles of people living with HIV.

Jones would be toasted at a gala dinner on Feb. 6 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York, reports the AP.

Jones won Tonys for choreographing “Spring Awakening” and “Fela!,” and he’s also a MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant recipient. He formed the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in 1982 with his late partner Arnie Zane.

He has tackled racism and faith in “Last Supper at Uncle Tom’s Cabin/The Promised Land,” explored those with AIDS in “Still/Here” and created a hip-hop adaptation of Aeschylus’ “The Seven.”
