Outfest 2016 is in full force, hunties! For the next eleven days, a diverse range of LGBTQ stories will be center stage and highlighted amongst the community and audiences alike. Last night at the Orpheum, crowds came out to support Clea DuVall’s directoral debut, “The Intervention.”
The evening opened with a powerful speech by Wilson Cruz: “We’re here tonight to celebrate storytelling and that’s why Outfest exists — to support the LGBT experience.”
Outfest exec director Christopher Racster added an amazing tribute to love: “But for 34 years, Outfest has stood for a safe place for the LGBT community to come together,” he added. “Love wlll always be stronger than hate. Thanks for not letting hate win.”’
Things went award-worthy when John Cooper was awarded the Outfest Achievement Award adding, “The world is ready for more of us and together we can make that happen.”
