JOHN TRAVOLTA made his first public appearance last night since the gay scandal broke.

Travolta, 58, stepped out in public for the first time following weeks of shockers about his private life behind closed doors.

The “Pulp Fiction” star was onstage to honor fellow thesp Shirley MacLaine at an American Film Institute gala event.

Clad in a black tux, Travolta appeared relaxed, smiling at the celeb packed aud during his speech as he introduced a video montage of MacLaine’s cinematic career.

Not surprisingly, Travolta had earlier avoided the paparazzi heavy media intensive red carpet.

Nor did he sit in the audience with the other A-listers before or after his speech.
