    I remember telling some one in a Gay bar called the Boltons in Earls Court that I did’nt fancy him after he was being sexual with me in the bar…And was’nt he offended!

    Adam Lambert’s management are certainly freaked out by their client’s homosexuality.

    The editor’s letter in the issue of Out on which Lambert is included is VERY interesting. It refers to Lambert’s management making a request that Out Magazine NOT ask Lambert about the March on Washington or marriage equality. Their words – “do not ask him anything ‘too gay’ or ‘gay-gay’ ”

    Interestingly Out Magazine also state that the only way that Lambert would appear on this month’s cover was when he heard that he would be sharing the cover with a straight woman – Cyndi Lauper. They then said that Kris Allen – the straight winner of American Idol the year Lambert came 2nd, had had no issue with appearing alone on the cover of Out.

    Very curious behaviour.

  3. Simon – what you refer to in your second paragraph was also down to his management too

  4. I don’t think Adams management is freaked out about their clients sexuality. Have you seen some of the photoshoots, his album cover, have you heard his new music? lol Adam is a singer who happens to be gay. He isn’t trying to be a poster boy for gay rights, or start his career off talking politics or social issues. He wants make music and entertain. The editor of OUT magazine crossed a line with his “Letter to Adam”. If he has a problem with the management that’s who he should have addressed instead of using Adam to further his own agenda. Tacky.

  5. Personally I think it is just Americans who are freaked out by sexuality period. I have never known such repression and obsession. Thats weird.

    I can kinda see where he’s coming from. It’s perfectly fine for men and women to hold hands and kiss in public but if a gay couple did that then people are outraged. But I think using female sexuality is a bad example. Semi-naked women may be everywhere but its not actual female sexuality as such. It’s how some men perceive female sexuality should be. It objectifies women rather than being a celebration of our sexuality.

    No 4: Chica: You say: “I don’t think Adams management is freaked out about their clients sexuality. Have you seen some of the photoshoots, his album cover, have you heard his new music? lol Adam is a singer who happens to be gay. He isn’t trying to be a poster boy for gay rights, or start his career off talking politics or social issues. He wants make music and entertain. The editor of OUT magazine crossed a line with his “Letter to Adam”.”

    He did not cross a line with his letter to Adam.

    For Lambert’s management to ask a gay magazine not to ask their client questions that are ‘too gay’ or ‘gay-gay’ and then to only allow their client appear on the cover so long as he is sharing the cover with a straight woman is bizarre.

    The editor was absolutely right to question their motivation and thinking.

    Out Magazine is a lifestyle, fashion, gossip magazine. It is not a political or campaigning magazine. If Lambert’s management had not set all these absurd conditions for the interview then there would not have been a ‘letter to Adam’. Thanks to his own management Lambert has now been placed in a position where Out had no choice but to ask ‘What exactly is the problem than Adam Lambert’s management has with his sexuality?’

    Simon, sexuality? It’s all Greek to me!

  9. Adam Lambert is the epitome of what a person should be! He might not think so but I think he is the starting point of great change in how we view ourselves and others. Adam is going to show people how to accept life for what it is without any judgment.People in America are too concerned about image you know straight, rich and Christian.This mindset needs to be thrown out the window.How long will it take for people to just love one another and be good and kind and true to themselves? Hopefully not long, enough said about that. I am very happy that Adam was named one of the top 100 gays in Out magazine! And people being sexual is well sexy it doesn’t mean your out to jump on the nearest thing {and pardon my French as they say}and screw.I’m a straight female but I find men and women sexy. It shouldn’t be an assumption that if your a woman and find another woman attractive or a man and find another man attractive that you are automatically gay or lesbian. Maybe if we concentrate hard enough things will become better. Sooner rather than later.Love to all who accept people for who they are without judgment :) Love to Adam Lambert And damn is he sexy!! :)
