HIH had the honor of being invited to attend the annual Legacy Awards at the DGA on Sunset Boulevard last night. This year's recipients were Emmy Award®-winning producer and director Alan Poul and Clear Channel Los Angeles. The event serves as a fundraiser for the Outfest Legacy Project for LGBT Film Preservation, a collaboration between Outfest and the UCLA Film & Television Archive.
Three-time Emmy winner and three-time Academy Award® nominee Laura Linney presented the award to Alan Poul, who delivered an absolutely riveting speech about the current state of entertainment and LGBT visibility. The two have been great friends ever since working together on the groundbreaking 1994 miniseries Tales of the City.
Comedian Bruce Vilanch hosted the special evening which saw the World
Premiere of the restored film Queens at
Heart, a mid-1960s documentary that provides a rare and surprisingly
poignant glimpse into pre-Stonewall transgender life.
