Adam and Leila Lambert Honored by PFLAG

Adam Lambert and his mother Leila Lambert received awards yesterday in Beverly Hills, CA from the PFLAG organization. PFLAG stands for Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbian and Gay. Even though there were scary periods in his life when coming to terms with his homosexuality, Adam admits his experience was relatively easy. And he feels his liberal parents were a part of that ease.

When describing the actual time of disclosure, Adam and Leila joke that one of her first reactions was “great – more shopping!” I’d love to hear about some of those shopping trips. The following video is their acceptance speech, complete with a description of the awards received.

Love ya!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)


  1. Beautiful!!

  2. They do look great. I am about Leila’s age and can only dream of looking half as good. It’s nice to be recognized for your influence in this community.

    it really helps to have your parents love and support. there’s still lots of hate and prejudice against
    gay people. adam’s mom is great and she really deserves this recognition from PFLAG. my mom
    was also very supportive of my coming out. for many of us it’s not a matter of choice but a recognition
    of you we are.

  4. As a very straight mom, I can honestly say, the most important wish I have for my kids
    is that they’re happy. As long as they don’t hurt anyone. I would be so very proud if I
    had children half as happy as Adam . When people learn to mind there own business,
    focus on themselves and not judge others to make themselves look good, perhaps we’ll
    all be happier. Adam and his mother, and father are important role models for everyone!!!

  5. They are simply the best! I’m proud that I recognize their gifts.
