Daniels has been rather open about his bisexuality and relationships since he rose to fame (see fellow Examiner story.)

The intimate gathering took place at the Los Angeles home of Grammy award-winning composer Mervyn Warren where Lee attended with his boyfriend Andy Sforzini. Additional guests included actress Raven Symone, actor Darryl Stephens, and Outfest board members who enjoyed light appetizers and cocktails.

At the reception, Lee Daniels shared his appreciation to Outfest for honoring him with the Outfest Legacy Award, which he will receive later this week at an awards ceremony.

During the event, Yves De Launay, Vice President of Prestige Brands at Rémy Cointreau USA, proposed a toast with LOUIS XIII, the world’s finest cognac, asking guests to raise their glasses to honor Lee Daniels. Lee was also gifted his own personalized bottle of Louis XIII and he excitedly said “I put this in [The Butler] and I loved it!” Later in the night, LOUIS XIII presented Outfest UCLA Legacy Project with a donation on behalf of Lee Daniels.
