The Huffington Post Thinks Adam Lambert’s Sexual Identity Reveal Was Shocking!

Well, I don’t think Adam Lambert shocked anyone when he revealed his homosexuality, via the infamous Rolling Stone interview. But according to Noah Michelson and The Huffington Post, Adam fits in with their article titled “25 Celebrity Coming Out Stories That Shocked The World.”

“Star Trek” actor Zachary Quinto’s coming out as gay via a profile in New York magazine made a lot of noise this weekend.

Even in 2011, with the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” and gay marriage legal in New York, an A-list actor’s decision to leave the closet isn’t one made hastily or without losing some sleep.

The fear of being shunned by casting directors concerned about a gay actor’s ability to convincingly play straight and worries that he or she will end up alienating a major portion of his or her fan base has kept and continues to keep many in Hollywood closeted.

Still, we’ve come a long way over the past 25 years and as more and more stars make the choice to come out, the LGBT “community” gains new role models, especially important for isolated youth, and greater visibility overall which helps alter, shape, and define the way mainstream society understands and views what it means to be LGBT.

In honor of Quinto’s coming out, HuffPost Gay Voices is taking a look at 24 other celebrities who shocked the world by coming out of the closet. Vote on the most shocking and tell us which story surprised you the most in the comments section below.

Adam Lambert, 2009
The singer’s sexuality was always a topic of discussion for viewers when he was performing on “American Idol,” but Lambert didn’t come out until after the competition had wrapped. In a June 2009 Rolling Stone cover story, Lambert said, “Right after the finale [of “AI”], I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, ‘I’m going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler,’.. I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.”

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! :)

    Shocked!!!! As if!. Adam in his own words has been ‘out’ since he was 18, he also says he was never in the closet.
    Just because ONE person suddenly wakes up and reads what we have all known for ages, the new has suddenly become ‘shocking’.
    Obviously this person’s Gardar does’t work on all frequencies.

  4. But we did come to this site because it mentioned Adam. What does that say about us?

  11. kat23mogan says:

    Ummm he has his facts wrong…the Rolling Stone article came out before the finale…This is why there was a lot of people saying and still saying Adam lost because he was gay…not because Kris sang better or performed better, which we all know who was the best.
