Out artist Adam Lambert spent the weekend under the Miami sun during the 5th Annual Miami Beach Gay Pride celebration. On Saturday he attended a press conference where he was awarded the key to the city of Miami Beach and Sunday he headlined the big Pride event in South Beach’s Lummus Park. Scantily-clad male dancers performed alongside Glambert, who sang songs from his album Trespassing, which debuted last spring at number one (and making him the first openly gay artist to do so.) After the jump, check out a video of Lambert performing the album’s title-track “Trespassing” and “Naked Love.” You can also read The Advocate’s November 2011 cover story, “Reinventing Adam Lambert” here.
Doesn’t this year feel like the longest Halloween ever? That’s because while the holiday isn’t technically until tomorrow, the costume parties have been in full swing since last Friday. In West Hollywood, this day couldn’t have come a moment too soon. Moving from its usual Hollywood cemetery location, the annual “Fred and Jason’s Halloweenie” had an extra special venue at the backlot of the HBO hit series True Blood. In its 7th year, the costume celebration attracted hundreds of gays and ghouls dressed to their imagination’s best, and its proceeds benefitted the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles (GMCLA.org). In attendance were some of Hollywood’s LGBT elite, including singer Adam Lambert, former *NSYNC member Lance Bass, television producer Peter Marc Jacobson, and Writer Bruce Vilanch.
