Lambert: ‘America is in the midst of this big civil rights movement’

Adam Lambert

American Idol star Adam Lambert, believes American attitudes to homosexuality are changing so fast, the country is in the middle of a “big civil rights movement.”

Lambert, who recently became the first out gay man to top the U.S. Billboard album chart with the album Trespassing told the Independent, “[America] is in the midst of this big civil rights movement. It’s beautiful to see how people are powering through and I think the timing of that and my notoriety is a privilege.

“I feel I do have a certain amount of responsibility – because I have a visibility that not a lot of people have in the gay community, especially in the music industry – to be comfortable, to be open.”
