Openly gay singer Adam Lambert says the
music industry is quickly becoming more accepting of LGBT artists.
The 33-year-old Lambert made his
comments in a wide-ranging interview with glossy Hunger
“It's quickly changing along with
society,” Lambert said of the music industry's acceptance of LGBT
artists. “I'm thrilled. We have entered a time with a much more
level playing field.”
“You've been credited with advancing
gay rights in music, which definitely needed to happen. Do you feel
a responsibility to continue to do so?”
“I think there's a simple power in
being unapologetic and open about who and what you are and not
letting it prevent you from getting what you want,” Lambert
answered. “In that way, I think I've made a statement. My wish is
for gay to become less of a label, and more of just one of many great
colours in the collective box of humanity. I'm not a separatist.
I'm all inclusive.”
Lambert will release the single Ghost
Town, from the upcoming album The Original High,
on April 21.
