Natasha Lyonne To Host Outfest Legacy Awards

Natasha Lyonne To Host Outfest Legacy Awards

Outfest announced today that “Orange Is The New Black” star Natasha Lyonne will host the 10th Annual Legacy Awards, benefiting the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project. This year’s inaugural dinner will take place on Wednesday, November 12th at performing arts venue Vibiana in downtown Los Angeles, with head chef Neal Fraser.

“Natasha Lyonne is a force – she has been unafraid to push the boundaries of gender and sexuality in roles ranging from the hilariously campy to the downright brazen,” says Kirsten Schaffer, executive director of Outfest. “She has also been a vibrant part of the Outfest community, having starred in numerous films that are housed in the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project archive, including ‘But I’m A Cheerleader,’ ‘G.B.F.,’ and ‘Party Monster.’”

As previously announced, legendary author Armistead Maupin (Tales of the City) will be presented with the Visionary Award, Hilary Swank (“Boys Don’t Cry”) will receive the Trailblazer Award, and Levi Strauss & Co. will be awarded with the Guardian Award.
