Bud Knight

In this week’s paper we reported the death of Bud Knight. He was active in many organizations in the LGBT community. I got to know him working as a volunteer at the front desk of the Gay and Lesbian Community Center.

In 1959, he appeared on the TV game show What’s My Line. Bud was a maternity clothes buyer for Neiman’s at the time. For 1950s TV, the questions got a little racy but Bud handles it well.

The clip is a hoot so I asked his partner, Chet Flake, and he agreed Bud would get a kick out of sharing it with friends.
