It is with great pain and sadness that I have to report that my friend, business partner and mentor of many years, Scott Morris, lost his battle with cancer and passed away yesterday with his loving partner of 30 years, Gordon.
From being a prostitute on the streets at 16 years old, to being in the first ever gay pride march, to becoming one of first ever DJ’s spinning in night clubs from NYC and Miami in the 1970’s, to volunteering years of his life to helping those in need during the HIV/AIDs pandemic, to starting his own production studio (Factory Videos, later GoldPan Media) and the world’s largest bathhouse party Cum Union… he was a legend and an icon! For anyone that heard his hilarious stories, told with an acerbic wit that could have you laughing uncontrollably, all you could do is sit and listen and be entertained.
Scott brought joy, humor and happiness to all those around him and was truly one-of-a-kind. I’m going to miss him like crazy.
