Morris Kight 

(born November 19, 1919 – died January 19, 2003)

Morris Kight (NOT KNIGHT) was born in Texas around the end of First World war.
In the 1940s he was working in many political, civil rights, and labor rights groups.
By the first half of the 1950s, he was acting on stages in Albuquerque. Two of the theater companies would bring in actors from California. From these visitors Kight learned of the new “homophile” organizations. He was just 31 and never heard of them.

In 1958, Kight moved to Los Angeles, where he was the founder or co-founder of several gay and lesbian organizations. The first such organization was the Committee for Homosexual Freedom or CHF, which became the Gay Liberation Front (GLF). In October 1969, it became the 3rd largest GLF in the country (after New York City and Berkeley). By the next year, there were over 350 GLF organizations around the country.

He also co-founded Christopher Street West gay pride parade in Los Angeles in 1970, Aid For AIDS in 1983, and the Gay Community Center in 1971, (now the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center). Kight considered the Community Center as the achievement he was most proud. 

Barney's Beanery Incident
Kight brought his experiences in political action into the realm of gay rights. One of the first actions by the LA GLF was against a local eatery called Barney's Beanery. The restaurant, located in West Hollywood, not only had a sign above bar that said “Fagots [sic] Stay Out”, but also printed up matchbook covers with the same saying. In 1970, Kight, along with Troy Perry and 100 activists protested outside. They would send in protesters a few at a time to order coffee and take up space at the tables. The sign came down that day.
However the sign was put up and taken down several times over the next 14 years, and the restaurant's matchbooks also bore the line before the practice ended. Since 2005, a new owner, David Houston, has apologized and worked to reach out to the LGBT community. Now Barney's Beanery holds monthly lunches for disadvantaged gay youth.

Morris Kight was one of the leaders of the 1987 Second National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. He was subsequently one of the organizers of the 1988 March on Sacramento for Lesbian and Gay Rights, at which Leonard Matlovich gave his last public speech.

He served on the County of Los Angeles Human Relations Commission for two decades.

In 2003 the City of Los Angeles dedicated the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and McCadden Place, in Hollywood, as "Morris Kight Square." This location was selected as it was the stepping off point for Christopher Street West, gay pride parade.
