Shepherd Fairey helped raise funds for the LGBT community at the Shepard Fairey Equality Project.

Even though he's in the middle of an ugly legal battle with the Associated Press, artist Shepard Fairey came through for the gays on Thursday night in West Hollywood.

For the Shepard Fairey Equality Project, Fairey donated dozens of his iconic "Defend Equality, Love Unites" posters (created after the passage of Proposition 8), asked celebrities to sign or customize the prints, and auctioned them off -- the money made will go to FAIR, a nonprofit group working to overturn California's ban on same-sex marriage. The Thursday event was a showcase for the posters -- designed by stars like Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellweger, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Groening, and DJ AM -- which are currently being auctioned off to buyers.

The soft-spoken -- and straight -- Fairey was on hand, greeting guests and spinning at the DJ booth. Fairey is in legal hot water over a Barack Obama photo he used to create his iconic "Hope" poster.

The event was sponsored by West Hollywood's Andaz Hotel, Out magazine, and HOMOtracker, a Los Angeles-based gay networking group.
