Christina Aguilera will inaugurate The
Abbey's Gay Walk of Fame at the legendary bar's highly-anticipated
grand re-opening on Wednesday night.
The West Hollywood bar and eatery will
honor Aguilera for her positive contributions to the lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender community.
Aguilera will place her hands and feet
in cement outside the storied watering hole in a ceremony scheduled
to begin at 8PM.
Earlier this month, the singer's
Beautiful topped a
poll of most empowering LGBT songs.
The poll, which was conducted by the UK
gay rights group Stonewall, asked respondents which track of the last
decade they felt had the most empowering message.
Thirty-three percent gave their nod to
Aguilera's 2003 hit.
In the video for Beautiful, two
men kiss and hold hands in public. (The video is embedded in the
right panel of this page.)
In acknowledging the honor, Aguilera
said “my gay fan base is so important to me and this continues my
special relationship with them.”
a recent It Gets Better video, two Columbus, Ohio choirs joined
to dedicate their rendition of the song to troubled lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgender teens.
