Jay Leno Comes Out
(In Support of Gay Marriage)

Perhaps as penance for his recent “gay face” controversy, Tonight Show host Jay Leno will appear at a gay marriage rally at a West Hollywood gay bar tonight.

Jay Leno will be among the boldfaced names at a gay marriage celebration and rally tomorrow night at the Abbey in West Hollywood. T.R. Knight will join the Matthew Shepard Foundation’s Judy Shepard and Love and Pride jewelry designer Udi Behr for a group wedding of gay and lesbian couples at the landmark gay pub on Robertson Boulevard.

The Tonight Show host decided to make an appearance in support of the recent legalization of gay marriage by California’s Supreme Court. “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,” a rep for the event said. “He wants to impress upon everyone here in California that the sky will not fall here either.” The event will also encourage people to vote “no” on the upcoming ballot initiative that would reverse the court’s decision.

Has any Hollywood celebrity come out against gay marriage? Would they dare?

UPDATE: Via Towleroad, here’s Leno signing the pledge to support gay marriage.
