What is a legacy worth?
A great deal, according to members of the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project. Last night AE EditorKarman Kregloe and I, your humble Hollywood correspondent, trekked through downtown LA to cull the Legacy Awards for sapphic snippets, moving presentations, and free booze. The Outfest UCLA Legacy Project is the only project in the world dedicated to preserving LGBT moving media for current and future generations of the LGBT community. As you’ve probably noticed, history has not been kind to gays and lesbians. For centuries, we have been rendered invisible, save for the occasional salacious incident and the few instances of persecution that historians bothered to document. The mainstream media has largely ignored LGBT heritage and culture unless it somehow collides with our occasionally benevolent heterosexual overlords.
