Outfest begins in Los Angeles
The Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, Outfest, opens July 12 with Hedwig and the Angry Inch and runs through July 23, closing with a screening of All Over the Guy. The lesbian comedy Kissing Jessica Stein, a festival favorite, has also been added to the extensive lineup. Outfest is also running a cyber auction, featuring a variety of glorious trips, and will be accepting bids until the end of the silent auction at the opening-night gala July 12.
