Elizabeth Taylor Shrine at Favorite Gay Bar

The Abbey in West Hollywood was a favorite hang out for Elizabeth Taylor.  It is a large gay bar and a place she was always welcome. One a week, she would hold court in a smaller room in the sprawling bar, sitting in her wheel chair and chatting with friends and patrons.

Taylor was generous to the gay community and instrumental in many AIDS charities including her own, the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation. Her many friends in the Hollywood gay community have made pilgrimages to The Abbey and set up what could only be described as a shrine to the late actress.
