Soloway and Hayes Acceptance Speeches


The 2016 Outfest Legacy Awards combined glamour, music, comedy and fine dining, all to raise funds for the vital work of the Outfest UCLA Legacy Project. Emcee Harry Shum, Jr. of “Shadowhunters” was one of many FreeForm stars on hand to represent the LGBT-friendly network, which was honored with the Corporate Trailblazer Award, while Jill Soloway and Sean Hayes gave funny, heartfelt speeches as they received, respectively, the Visionary and Trailblazer Awards. Throw in music from Samuel Larsen, a delicious dinner from Redbird chef Neal Fraser and an auction that featured world travel and much-coveted Broadway tickets to see Bette Midler in the “Hello, Dolly!” and attendees got a once-in-a-lifetime evening.
