With a long-standing business history in Hawaii, Jack Law has been coined one of the most influential advocates for gay culture in Honolulu.
He has helped to create, with business partner Bob Magoon, three of Waikiki’s famous entertainment clubs and bars: Hula’s Bar & Lei Stand, Wave Waikiki, and Malia’s Cantina.
Jack was also one of the Founding Board Members of the Life Foundation, the AIDSFoundation of Hawaii on Oahu, and the Honolulu Rainbow Film Festival, in honor of Adam Baran, which is one of the oldest LGBT film festivals in the world.
He has received the Manoa Valley Theatre Manoa Marquee Award, the Friends of Civil Rights, Martin Luther King, Jr. Award, Gregory House Programs’ Kahu Malama Award, and Life Foundation’s Community Business Award. He has been appointed by Governors John Waihee and Ben Cayetano to the State of Hawaii Civil Rights Commission where he served for 8 years.
On July 15, 2011 Governor Neil Abercrombie proclaimed “Jack Law Day,” giving the bar owner his own day in Hawaii.
