Leno, Jay rallies for marriage, gay

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 12-50Late night talker Jay Leno has certainly faced some wrath for his perceived homo hostility. However, whether it's to make amends for his past transgressions or because he genuinely is a fan of gays and their equality, the "Tonight Show" host will today appear at a West Hollywood rally in support of marriage equality:

Jay Leno Says "I Do" in Support of Gay Marriage [E! Online via Yahoo!]

A nice gesture for sure.

True to form, however, we hear Conan O'Brien will show up at the rally's afterparty and be ten times as clever.

Your thoughts

Good for Jay. I never thought of him as homophobic.

A bit heterosexist. Inclined to make a joke about things that are serious to us. A bit too quick to rely on stereotypes. But not hateful.

Now it's good to hear that he supports equality.
