Adam Lambert will be honored next month at Equality Awards in LA

HollywoodNews.com: Equality California has just announced that it will honor singer and songwriter Adam Lambert and Facebook at this year’s annual Los Angeles Equality Awards on August 13 at The Beverly Hilton.

“We’re thrilled to honor Adam Lambert and Facebook whose work has been a catalyst for social change and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality,” Equality California Executive Director Roland Palencia said in a statement. “Their courage and leadership in entertainment and social media have helped Californians become more supportive of LGBT rights.”

Lambert is being honored as an outspoken and fearless role model for LGBT youth nationwide. He participated in the “It Gets Better” campaign with the hope of helping LGBT youth overcome bullying and his new song, Aftermath, will benefit the Trevor Project, a national suicide-prevention hotline for LGBT youth.
