Adam Lambert Receives Equality California Award

August 14, 2011

Just when we thought we couldn’t possibly love him more that we already do….Look closely at this photo. Adam’s beautiful eyes are welling up with tears. I love that he feels so deeply.

“‘You know obviously this is like a huge civil rights movement that we’re in the middle of right now… and very similar to the racial civil rights movement that we had in the 60’s. I think this will go down, and I think that we will progress and move forward, and I think that everything that we’re dreaming of is gonna come true. So we’re gonna have high hopes and just keep pushing forward.’ – Adam Lambert at Equality California Awards (transcribed by @blakkrrox)

“I’ve recognized my responsibility as a gay man, and that’s something I’m grateful for…I’m gonna keep being that weird f*cking fag, and having a real good time doing it.” – Adam Lambert in his acceptance speech
