Jump to navigation. After reading Aaron Hicklin's open letter, I felt compelled to summarize and add a few more of my own suggestions on how you might further prove your "gayness" to the "gay community" the gay community, of course, being defined as a monolithic entity of one heart and one mind. It is my hope that said suggestions will allow you to eventually break the chains of a record company that has controlled so many of your decisions over the past several months. I like you, Adam, I really do. That is why I freely offer these pearls of wisdom on how to celebrate, not dilute, the purity of your sexual identity.
Adam Lambert and the Gay/Bisexual Double Standard
Adam Lambert Talks About Changes for Gay Artists Since His 'Idol' Run - Variety
After months of public speculation about his sexuality, "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert , 27, acknowledges that he is gay in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone. The cover story includes Lambert talking about how he was inspired to audition for the reality singing competition after having a "psychedelic experience" at the Burning Man festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Just a few weeks after he was spotted holding hands and reportedly canoodling with alleged boyfriend Drake LaBry at a Los Angeles nightclub, the musical-theater veteran with a penchant for glam-rock get-ups and black fingernail polish finally provides some straight answers to the nagging questions about his sexuality, and explains why he craftily waited to reveal it. I embrace it. It's just another part of me," Lambert says in the article. I didn't want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullsh I need to be able to explain myself in context.
Adam Lambert: Is he or isn't he?
After blowing everyone away on the eighth season of American Idol, Adam Lambert went on to release his debut album 'For Your Entertainment' which included the international hit 'Whatya Want From Me' and earned him a Grammy Award nomination. Adam followed this success with his second album 'Trespassing' which became the first album to reach the number one spot in the US and Canada by an openly gay artist. He also explored the world of film and TV including a cameo in film 'Bohemian Rhapsody' as well as voicing character 'Emperor Maximus' in upcoming animated-live action hybrid movie 'Playmobil: The Movie'.

Austrian artist Conchita WURST , aka Tom Neuwirth , was a guest of American singer songwriter Adam Lambert this weekend at a roundtable of queer artists Lambert invited to his YouTube channel to talk about their experiences being a gay artist in the music industry. Especially when it comes to giving gay artists the same opportunities and promotion as straight artists. Hell, even female artists struggle to get the same support and money spent on them as men in the straight white male-oriented business, so imagine what it must be like to be openly gay or gay and female! The conversation was part of a celebration for Gay Pride in the U. And, while I found the other comments from artists like Alex Newell, Mary Lambert, Shameer and Adam Lambert himself interesting, as is always the case when I watch a group that involves Tom Neuwirth, he is the one I am there to hear.
