    The History of The Outfest Legacy Awards

    The Legacy Awards began in 2000 as the Screen Idol Awards. At the time, the awards were a space to honor acting performances in LGBTQIA+ roles. The ceremony quickly evolved into a more robust awards event as well as becoming a fundraiser for the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project, which it was renamed to recognize in 2014.

     

    Over the years, The Legacy Awards have honored visionary leaders, forward-thinking companies and trailblazing emerging talent alike. Some highlights include Hilary Swank, Armistead Maupin, Victoria Alonso, Tom Hanks, Rita Moreno, Laverne Cox and Michaela Jae Rodriguez.
