Tituss Burgess to Be Honored At NewFest LGBT Film Festival

22 September 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tituss Burgess will be honored with the inaugural Voice & Visibility Award at NewFest, the 28th annual LGBT film festival in New York.

Burgess is best known for his role as Titus Andromedon in the Netflix comedy “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” for which he’s been nominated for an Emmy twice. The actor, singer and stage performer has also appeared in “The Angry Birds Movie” and on Broadway in productions of “Guys and Dolls,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Jersey Boys.”

“It’s an honor to be the first recipient of this award,” said Burgess. “What a lovely reminder to us all that being yourself gives others permission to stand proudly in their own individuality.“

The award will be presented by actress Debra Messing (“Will & Grace”) on Oct. 20, the opening night of the festival, prior to the screening of the North American premiere of the “The Pass” starring Russell Tovey (“Looking”).
