Gay icons celebrate Center

Celebs onhand for L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center anni

Jesse Tyler Ferguson didn’t attend, but otherwise, most of Hollywood’s gay icons were on the Westin Bonaventure Hotel stage Saturday to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center. Leslie Jordan hosted, Jane Lynch presented, and honorees included Chaz Bono, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.

Jordan caused a mini-stir when he said the two “nicest” people in showbiz were Lynch and George Clooney. (Take that, you “Will & Grace” co-stars!) He later came out in a cone bra and blond wig to reveal, “The sad part is this isn’t the lowest I’ve gone.”

Harris, alongside partner Burtka, quipped, “Thank you, Leslie, for coming out in that Madonna outfit. It gave us both boners.”

David Arquette brought a hetero dollop to the night. There to give an award to Bono, he said his presence had less to do with their “Dancing With the Stars” stint than a “personal” transgender connection in the Arquette family.

“I shared a room with Alexis (born Robert). Patricia got a room to herself because she was a girl,” he recalled. “And Alexis moved into the closet.”
