athy Griffin will be honored Tuesday by West Hollywood for the increase of more than $5 million for HIV/AIDS services, and LGBTQ causes.

The city will present Griffin with a Rainbow Key Award as part of an annual ceremony to honor individuals who have contributed to the LGBTQ community.

Griffin is in the midst of a comeback after the controversy after she posed for a photo shoot while holding a fake severed Donald Trump head in May 2017.

Griffin apologized, but later retracted.

The comedian has addressed the consequences of the images that are included with the death threats and lost jobs, in an interview with The Associated Press in April before they embarked on a North American tour.

West Hollywood is a city of 36,000 between Los Angeles, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
