Stevie St. John, representative for the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, explained the 30-year-old singer was chosen as the first gay icon to appear on the new Walk of Fame because of the work she has done in speaking out in support of equality within the homosexual community.
He told gossip website RadarOnline: "We’re proud of Christina, who’s always supported causes important to gay people. We applaud her for speaking out in favour of equality and working to support the community.”
Legendary gay hotspot The Abbey was one of late screen legend Elizabeth Taylor's favourite hangouts, and when owners decided to recently remodel the club, they chose to include the Gay Walk of Fame as an attraction.
Christina recently admitted she gets bedroom advice from her gay pals because she thinks they understand her problems better than anyone else.
She said: "I love giving my male friends advice. And when I need advice myself? I go to my gay guy friends. They're very understanding and they are often coming from the same perspective.
"Who's better at giving advice, gay or straight guys? Well that depends on the advice you're looking for. If it's bedroom-related, my gay friends are the best. They just lay it out there!"
