Director Brett Ratner is making amends with the gay community following his 2011 homophobic slur scandal by helping to raise over $25,000 (£16,129) for lesbian Christine Quinn's New York City mayoral campaign.
The moviemaker stepped down as the producer of the 2012 Oscars after he admitted he never allowed actors to practice on set because rehearsals were for "fags", causing a major backlash from gay rights groups.
Ratner apologised by shooting a public service announcement for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (Glaad), and now he has thrown his support behind Speaker of the New York City Council Quinn, who is hoping to succeed Mayor Michael Bloomberg when he retires at the end of his current term.
