    Congrats to Adam and other nominees!

    Adam Lambert ?@adamlambert
    I’m so grateful to be nominated for a @GLAAD Media Award! It was a great year! Congrats to my fellow nominees- great company to be in.

  • buffynut2001

    Great news!! Adam has done several events this year supporting gay rights. He deserves this nomination! Hope he wins!

  • seashellz51

    Congrats to Adam and the other nominees! I didnt realize Ryan Murphy was behind American Horror Story. I love that show!

  • bridgette12

    I love American Horror Story also, it’s great. Congrats to Ryan, Adam and all the nominees. They deserve recognition for what they do and how well they represent the LGBT community. 

  • Miss Chaos

    Congratulations to Adam, I hope he wins, he deserves what ever awards he might win.  Such a great person!

  • Montavilla

    The other nominees for Outstanding Music Artist are Frank Ocean, Gossip, Rufus Wainwright, and Scissor Sisters.

    I wonder how the decision will be made?  Will GLAAD honor the achievement of Adam’s landmark #1 on Billboard?  Or will they choose Frank Ocean’s Grammy-nominated album?  

    Either way, it’s an honor to be nominated and all of them should be congratulated.  

  • buffynut2001

    Or will they honor the work done for gay rights?

  • mouse999

    Congrats to Adam, Glee and New Normal. Adam truly deserves this nom and I hope he wins. Anything by Ryan Murphy is fun in my book.

  • ceecee21

    Congratulations to Adam and the other nominees.  I don’t think Adam realized after Idol that he would not only be a popstar but also a role model for kids in the LGBT community.  This past year he has embraced that role and has participated in several events to support gay rights.

    Yes, let’s remember this isn’t about the best show, or the best singer. This is about who has helped the LGBT community the most, with raising money, being a good role model, and speaking out. 

  • lexa

    I really hope he wins this.  It is really deserved.  He is just so eloquent when he speaks about issues surrounding the LGBT community and comes across with so much passion and honesty that, I believe, he is opening peoples eyes  to the struggles and in turn pushing for equal rights for everyone.  Best of all things ARE changing and he can be proud to know he is part of that change.

    Very proud fan! 

  • milwlovesadam

    As a fan of all of Ryan Murphy’s shows, yay! As a super-fan of Adam-double yay!! He has done so much this year, I just love listening to him speak so eloquently about gay rights and equality. He has performed in fund-raisers, and, hey, does the first Queen gig count?  The proceeds of that massive crowd went to AIDS in Russia. Elton John and Adam raised millions ( I never saw a figure, but, it must be, if there were at least 250,000 and more in attendance ), Outlaws of Love on the CD, answering countless questions, being called out as a role model by tons of kids and adults, go Adam! He has become an incredible spokesperson.

    Happy Endings!  I want either that or Modern Family to win.  But it’ll probably be The New Normal.  Ugh.  That show is terrible. Just like everything else Ryan Murphy.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Very happy at Lambert’s nomination.  He’s been a source of inspiration to people all over the world – have read many of the expressions of gratitude to him for just being who he is.  Brave man.

  • HKfan

    Congratulations to Adam on a very well deserved nomination at the GLAAD awards, not just for the music, althought that is amazing. But just for being himself, and being such a positive and eloquently spoken role model for the LGBTQ community. I read comments everyday from fans thanking Adam just for being himself, and from so many ‘straight’ folks  thanking him for opening their eyes to the struggles that this community face, and for making them more accepting etc. He’s touched the lives of so many.

  • Susan Reiter

    Congratulations to Adam for this nomination!  He is a great face of the LGBT community!  Now here’s hoping he gets to perform : )

  • Loretta

    Congrats Adam and I hope you get to perform and that you win.

    IMO you have been very instrumental in getting the GLAAD message and the It’s Gets Better message out.

    You would also be wonderful spokes person for GLAAD.

  • weareallinnocent

    Go Adam! Well deserved~

  • Axxxel

    I have the feeling that Adam finally has found a good balance between ” be an great entertainer to a general public ” and ” support the LGBT cause without being too political”..

    Look at his appearances in China… also at the Hennessy Artistry in China during his performance  it says on the ticker … Adam Lambert…USA… He is not only an ambassador for the LGBT people but also for the USA…

  • dc_glam

    In addition to everything else that has already been mentioned, Adam also headlined a Marriage Equality Benefit for the state of Maryland just prior to the election.   This was a fabulous concert for a fabulous cause!

    I doubt he could even attend it. The Music award will be on March16 and Adam has a concert in Russia that day.

  • MellyPer1692

    Aren’t there three Glaad award shows? They do one in LA, one in NY and one in SF, right? They split up the categories, or have in the past.

  • Nadine_Bitch

    Yeah, there are 3 GLAAD award shows and Music awards will be held in New York.
