Leno Set For Gay Pride Rally

U.S. TV host Jay Leno is determined to put his recent controversial remarks about homosexuality behind him - by appearing at a gay pride event.
The chat show king sparked outrage among gay rights groups by asking actor Ryan Phillippe to give him his "gayest look" during an interview.
Phillippe recently revealed his first paid acting role was as a gay teen on TV soap One Life To Live, and comic Leno decided to poke fun at his admission when he was a guest on his late night show in March (08). He was subsequently forced to apologise for his comments.
But Leno has now signed up to appear at a gay marriage celebration and rally in West Hollywood on Thursday (05Jun08) night, alongside gay Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight.
California recently legalised gay marriage and the event will see a group of couples tie the knot in celebration of the state's new law - and Leno insists he will attend to voice his support for the cause.
A spokesperson for the event says, "He said that he is from Massachusetts and that the sky did not fall in their state when marriage equality became the law of the land there.
"He wants to impress upon everyone here in California that the sky will not fall here either."
