Adam Lambert Daily Update – January 15, 2013
Adam Lambert tribute magazine AURA is coming!
We have all felt the “Lambert Effect” – the profound feelings of transformation inspired by Adam Lambert. We have heard these stories, from fans around the world of every age, race, nationality, gender and sexual orientation. Adam has touched lives in more ways than can be counted. This amazing phenomenon deserves to be celebrated, and so AURA was born – a single-issue tribute magazine created by and for fans.
AURA will be richly illustrated and accompanied by compelling essays, heart-felt fan testimonials, beautiful photography, fan art, fun facts and stats, all packaged in an elegant, edgy design. Commentaries on Adam’s music, videos, televised performances, concerts and advocacy for Equality will be showcased along with personal narratives and poetry reflecting the myriad ways in which he has profoundly changed lives, hearts, and minds. AURA will include special essays written exclusively for us by some of Adam’s close friends and collaborators.
Sales of AURA will raise funding for Cyndi Lauper’s Forty to None Project, a cause Adam supports. Forty to None is raising awareness about the epidemic of homelessness among LGBTQ youth and is helping these young people who have been rejected by their own families to find safe havens and a better future.
