Jonathon Conte died May 9th, 2016, from suicide. He left behind his loving partner, Christopher. Jonathon also left behind a worldwide community of intactivists, people working to end genital mutilation of children. Jonathon inspired many and was loved far and wide for his brilliant activism. Jonathon Conte will take his place in history as a human rights hero. He bravely stood up for and spoke out for the rights of all children to bodily integrity.
