A trusted voice in the LGBT community for almost 20 years, Christopher Racster has made an international impact as an advocate, fundraiser and filmmaker, employing media to help shape public perception and acceptance of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Fueled by the challenges the LGBT community continued to face in the late ‘90s, Christopher realized his dream of becoming a film producer, determined to make depictions of the LGBT experience his sole focus.

With a long track record of well-received films and a strong voice as an LGBT advocate, Christopher was invited to become a Patron of the Iris Prize Festival in Wales and a Trustee of the Iris Prize Foundation, helping to launch the careers of filmmakers worldwide.

In 2011, Christopher joined Outfest as Director of Individual Giving. And in 2015, after an exhaustive international search, Christopher was named Executive Director of Outfest, charged with growing the programs and stature of the organization worldwide.
