It's Our Legacy.

Last night, Jason Boegh attended the premiere of the first film remastered by the Outfest Legacy Project, Parting Glances. The movie was amazing! Four stars of the film were in attendance and were joined on a panel by the cinematographer and the head of the Outfest Legacy Project.

The Legacy Project is an amazing project that was set up to preserve GLBT films that define our legacy. Although Parting Glances is only 21 years, there were no viable prints available. The Legacy Project was able to make new prints from the original negatives as well as a new set of polyester negatives that will last for a couple of hundred years. A remasted DVD is currently being planned of the film.

If you missed Parting Glances, it will be shown in New York at Lincoln Center this Fall as part of a fundraiser for the Legacy Project.

On the red carpet, we spoke with 4 stars of the film including Steve Buscemi and Kathy Kinney. Footage will be up soon.

Tonight, Starr Session visits her old stomping ground, Eleven, to attend DIVA's Hairspray: The Movie party.

We'll be back at Outfest for closing night (7/23) at the Orpheum Theatre.

Happy Tuesday!
