Adam Lambert, the openly gay American Idol runner-up who went on from the show to take over the world, was honored last night at the GLAAD Media Awards for his efforts for the LGBT community.
Above is his acceptance speech (*some discretion is recommended for one instance of language that might offend) and fans shouldn’t be that surprised to know that it was every bit as gorgeous as they probably expected from him.
The singer attended the awards gala with his mother as his date (and they both wore Alexander McQueen), and was presented with the award by former Scary Spice of the Spice Girls, Mel B.
He spoke of being a voice for the LGBT community for the mere fact that he’s a public figure, he spoke of change (the “It gets better” promise is being kept, he said) but, above all, he spoke about the importance of love and of acceptance.
Love is the one thing all humans have in common, regardless of their orientation, the color of their skin or their political beliefs, Adam said.
