Elizabeth Taylor

The Gay Bar SHRINE

3/24/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

She may be gone ... but gay men are still worshiping Elizabeth Taylor.

The staff at Liz's FAVORITE West Hollywood gay bar -- The Abbey -- erected a candle-lit memorial to the actress yesterday in the V.I.P. room where Liz would often hang out ... but that's only the beginning.

We're told the bar's offering a special drink in Liz's memory this weekend ... and they're donating ALL the proceeds to Elizabeth's AIDS foundation.

It's called the "Blue Velvet Martini" -- which they picked in honor of her role in the 1944 hit "National Velvet" -- and if you wanna try out their recipe ... it's made with Blue Angel vodka and blueberry schnapps.

Sources at the bar tell TMZ, regulars have been adding to the shrine non-stop since Elizabeth passed -- sending flowers and gifts since yesterday morning.

Hmm!!...Did you need to mention "gay men" or "The gay bar"? You could have just said The Abbey bar.

I'm not an expert as this but as you can tell by Taylor's foundation, she was a supporter of gays and gay rights. I'm not gay but it would seem to me that in this context it would be appropriate.

These people are hatemongers who spread hatred like a disease. The are NOT Christians... they are not even fit to be called "human beings" Just reading about them made me sick to my stomach. That they would use the word "God" and "Hate" on the same poster just goes to show you how lost these people really are. I wouldn't want to be any of them when it's time to stand before God!! Talk about misreprentation.... God is LOVE, agape Love, pure and simple. He loves us all regardless because He see's the heart. These people DO NOT have one. Pathetic... just pathetic!

I have been to the Abbey in W. Hollywood! Cool bar! I have to say that we all want to pay tribute to this fine woman for being an advocate for those that didn't have a voice, but personally, my feel that creating a 'shrine' to Ms. Taylor would be better served if the bar did it and took donations to support amFar or the Elizabth Taylor Foundation. God Bless Ms. Taylor and peace to her on her journey home!

you can be a straight person and the most evil villianous thing on the planet. and you can be a homosexual and a 'normal' person. it has absolutel ZERO to do with sexuality, but everything to do with trying to scapegoat a sexuality for allowing 'yourself' to get away with heinous crimes 'because of you special treatment sexuality'. this equal insanity, lunacy and all other possible definitions for evil.

I feel bad that gays/lesbians are getting HIV/AIDS but I'd never give one penny for a cure. There is already a cure for it. Just stop doing same sex and HIV will go away. I'm not going to give money to help arrest a desease so that people can keep doing something that is so against God. And let's be clear. Gays don't give a crap about straight people. If they did they wouldn't be putting us in the position where we can contract AIDS through blood transfusions or receive organs that is infested with AIDS. Innocent people are paying the price for their behavior. They keep talking about their rights to get married but they conveniently leave out the part where their behavior is affecting the entire world, and in a negative way. All it takes is one car accident or one major operation and if you are truly unlucky on that day, you might as well have been letting some guy hit you in the poop shoot. It just amazes me that you people are cheering on someone who could very well be your executioneer. It really dosen't get more dumb than that. It's like being held captive by someone who has scrapped a bomb to himself and you are telling him to push the button. And while you are cheering them on just remember this. When you die and have to face God, there isn't going to be a single one of those gays/lesbians standing behind you singing your praises. You are going to be on your own.
