Adam Lambert receives GLAAD award

Melanie B presents the singer with his award.

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert was honoured over the weekend with GLAAD’s Davidson/Valentini Award.

The award is given to a member of the LGBT community who has made a significant difference in promoting equality. Adam was presented with the award by Spice Girl and America’s Got Talent judge Melanie B.

Adam attended the awards with his mother Leila.

During his acceptance speech, Adam said: “We are right in the middle of two generations with two different perspectives but one common thread – love. With all the differences of opinion both within the LGBT community and elsewhere, the best we can do is to keep it real and to spread a message of acceptance.

If we can inspire even one person to open their mind, or another to be who they want to be, whether they’re gay or straight, old or young, man or woman, black or white – then it’s worth being objectified by the sometimes frustrating world of media sensationalism.

Thank you to GLAAD for recognizing my efforts, because I put a lot of effort into this. I think about it a lot (it makes me crazy), but my goal is to try to represent both myself and my community proudly.”
