About the Gala

The annual Outfest Legacy Awards Gala is the premiere fundraiser supporting Outfest Forward, our mentoring and educational programs, as well as the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project in partnership with the UCLA Film & Television Archive, the largest LGBTQIA+ moving image archive in the world. Join us in person at the Academy Museum for a night of glamour and excitement as we celebrate our honorees and kick off Outfest’s 40th Anniversary.

Can’t attend the event? You can give now and still make a lasting impact.

Honoring

These honorees have made it their life’s work to change the cultural dialogue by smashing stereotypes, breaking barriers, and advocating for a better, more inclusive world. They truly have had an enduring impact on the legacy of the LGBTQIA+ community.
