Lee Daniels, director of the highly acclaimed films Precious and The Butler, will be receiving the Visionary Award at Outfest’s 9th Legacy Awards. He is being recognized for his contribution in the LGBT arts and media community. “I am extremely flattered and humbled to be receiving this year’s Visionary Award,” said Daniels. “Outfest is an extraordinary organisation, and I cannot stress enough the importance of its mission. In both my professional and personal life, I constantly strive to represent and provide a voice for the LGBT community, and am so honored that the Legacy Awards have selected me as this year’s recipient.” “Lee Daniels is an exceptional filmmaker whose work has had, and will continue to have, a tremendous impact on both the LGBT community and culture at large,” said executive director Kirsten Schaffer. Outfest was founded in 1989 as a creative outlet to showcase films centered on LGBT issues. It is a non-profit organization that helps fund the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project, the largest archive of LGBT moving images in the world with more than 30,000 pieces of work. The ceremony will be held at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles on November 21.
