Adam Lambert is set to headline a concert to raise money for Marylanders for Marriage Equality tomorrow in Washington D.C., and the singer is also speaking about the economic importance of legalizing same-sex marriage.
“I hear a lot of arguments against it, where [gay activists] say, ‘We should be focusing on economic issues and not human rights issues, for the election.’ There’s some value in that,” the singer told Metro Weekly. “But I also think, ‘You know what? This is an economic issue for gay people.’ We should have the same right as a straight couple to have a tax exemption. … We should be able to raise a family that’s equally protected under the law.”
Adam has been with his partner, Sauli Koskinen, for close to two years now.
Those lucky enough to be in the D.C. area can purchase tickets to tomorrow’s show at Ticketfly.com. The show will take place at the 9:30 Club at 7, with tickets starting at $125.
