Los Angeles' premiere LGBT film festival Outfest kicked off in downtown LA on Thursday at the famed Orpheum. The Jonathan Groff/Troian Bellisario starrer C.O.G. (based on a David Sedaris story) was this year's premiere film, while Kimberly Peirce, the director of Boys Don't Cry and the upcoming Carrie remake, was honored with the Outfest Achievement Award.
