With Election Day right around the corner Adam Lambert, our favorite American Idol, is getting up on his soap box for equal rights, y’all! The silver-haired superstar performed a benefit show for Marylanders for Marriage Equality at Washington DC’s 9:30 Club last night, a benefit in direct relation to Question 6, a referendum filed to challenge the law that would legalize same-sex marriage in the state. The referendum will ask voters in MD to vote “For” or “Against” the law on the same day as the presidential election.
Watch how before a soulful performance of his “Outlaws of Love,” Glambert speaks very candidly about his need to get involved. “When I got the call today to come down and do this fundraiser I was very excited because I feel like it’s a little bit overdue for me in a political…anything. And this is something I can wholeheartedly back up…without sounding like an idiot.” He goes on to talk about how his brother always gives him hell for not being more politically-minded. “He’s always like, ‘You’re such an idiot about politics,’ and I’m like, ‘Ahhhh, I just want to dress up.’” Don’t we all, sir? Don’t we all?!
But seriously, we applaud the out and proud performer for taking a stand. “You can go to your church, you can go to your synagogue, you can go to your temple, whatever. But, give us equal rights under the law.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Adam!
