Recently, my friend Jonathon Conte committed suicide.
For those unfamiliar, Jonathon Conte was a much-loved and active member of Bay Area Intactivists. When many people thought of Intactivism and the movement to end infant circumcision, Jonathon’s face and efforts were one of the first things that came to mind.

I first met Jonathon Conte when I first interviewed him for my documentary, American Circumcision. I saw him again at numerous Intactivist events, and we became good friends, talking and spending time together even when I wasn’t working on the film.
In honor of Jonathon, I’d like to let him speak to you in his own words, by sharing audio from my interview with him for American Circumcision.
