Adam Lambert to Perform at GLAAD Awards

by at . Comments

Adam Lambert is scheduled to perform at the 21st Annual GLAAD Media Awards, to be held in Los Angeles on April 17. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has tapped the American Idol runner-up for one of its biggest annual events.

Aside from Adam Lambert, many big names will also be on hand.

At the ceremony, Wanda Sykes will be presented the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, given to an openly lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for the LGBT community.

Classic Lambert

Drew Barrymore will be honored with the Vanguard Award, after portraying the lesbian daughter of a widower (Robert De Niro) in the 2009 film Everybody’s Fine and joining public protests when the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8.

Other guests and presenters scheduled to attend include the Glee cast, Tom Ford (A Single Man), Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy), Jason Lewis (Brothers & Sisters), and Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), plus Chaz Bono, and Benjamin Bratt (La Mission).

Also appearing will be Clementine Ford (The L Word) and from the reality TV universe, the incredible Countess LuAnn de Lesseps (Real Housewives of New York City).

Sounds like an entertaining, attractive roster.

I totally agree with Sam-- GLAAD didn't back him up one bit with that ridiculous AMA controversy.....but Adam has CLASS and accepted because he is one heck of a gentleman..what a husband/dad he would make...oh well maybe in another life! adam has taught my entire family what it means to love and respect our neighbors. And foremost he is insanely TALENTED.....his voice in person just lifts you up up and away. I wish I could see him more often....he is fierce , bold and a true artist. GLAAD does not realize how lucky they are to have him. And I am so glad my children look up to him......he's an excellent role model.

My family wants so much to see him in concert but getting tickets at prices we can afford seem so impossible. We will support him any way we are able, however...buying cds. I submit comments when ever I can in his favor. Adam will always be #1, the best that there is.

Are they serious???
GLAAD shoved Adam Lambert under the bus after the AMAs just to make nice with ABC... GLAAD even had the nerve to say that they supported ABC when they cancelled Adam Lambert's performances and replaced him with Chris Brown of all people, the guy who assaulted Rhianna!
Clearly GLAAD, the organisation that is supposed to assist and support gay artists when they're treated unfairly wanted nothing to do with Adam Lambert and didn't deem him worthy of their support...
And now that GLAAD needs media attention for their irrelevant little awards show Adam Lambert suddenly is good enough for them again???
Lambert should tell them to f*ck off and never look back!

DD, I know how you feel about seeing Adam. I broke my bank to come from NY to see him perform at Indio. Wow, he was so worth it. Just have to save up now to prepare for his summer tour and any other surprises that pop up closer to NY between now and then. Know you'll have an amazing time.

Adam was such an exciting contestant on AI, so intriguing intelligent personable in interviews, he opened my mind and heart to the gay community issues just because I found him enlightening and interesting. And he has entertained me wonderfully throughtout the year. I'm fascinated by the good natured outstanding singer superstar rising Adam Lambert.
