WASHINGTON — A San Francisco man has received an award from Legacy, a smoking cessation agency created in 1998 as a result of a lawsuit settlement between attorneys and the tobacco industry, for his work to reduce LGBT smoking, the agency reports.

Bob Gordon received the agency’s Community Activist Award. Since 1993 when he joined the Coalition of Lavender-Americans on Smoking and Health (CLASH) in San Francisco, Gordon has been a leader in addressing tobacco-related harms within the community, Legacy officials said.
