Rocker Adam Lambert and his mother
Leila Lambert will be honored by Parents, Families and Friends of
Lesbians and Gays (PLAG) at their Sunday The
LA Event in Beverly Hills, California.
In June, Leila and Betty DeGeneres,
mother of chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, marched side-by-side
wearing matching red PFLAG t-shirts at the West Hollywood Gay Pride
“Look how sweet!” Adam messaged
along with a
photo to his more than 1 million Twitter followers. “My
beautiful mother Leila marching in the Gay Pride Parade for PFLAG
(that's Ellen's mom to the left!).”
At last month's Equality Awards
fundraiser for Equality California (EQCA), the state's largest gay
rights group, singer Sam Sparro presented Adam Lambert with the
group's Equality Idol Award.
“Over the past couple of years since
American Idol I've recognized my responsibility as a gay man
in the public eye and that's something that I'm really thankful for,”
Lambert said in accepting the award.
