    Noooooooooooooo!

  • huh?

    @Juny: No what?

    Ricky Martin is OK. But what about Adam Lambert? Why the awards show doesnt honor him and go populist by awarding an international pop star such as Ricky?

  • simple

    @Juny: Ricky is more than happy to support gay community and issues.
    Adam Lambert said he does NOT want to be gay activist:
    “I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil-rights leader.”

  • from GLAAD press release

    Singer Ricky Martin will receive the Vito Russo Award, which is named after one of GLAAD’s founders, and is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for our community. Martin’s 2010 appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show is a nominee this year for the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode. He was also featured in Spanish-Language media nominees for Outstanding TV Journalism – Newsmagazine, Outstanding Newspaper Article and two for Outstanding Magazine Article. After coming out via Twitter in March 2010, Martin spoke out for LGBT equality in English and Spanish-language media, sending messages of support to LGBT youth.
    .
    Through the music of his new album Musica+Alma+Sexo, the video for “The Best Thing About Me Is You,” and his best-selling autobiography, Me, Martin has encouraged acceptance and understanding of all people. His humanitarian work extends beyond LGBT issues, having founded the Ricky Martin Foundation, a nonprofit foundation that advocates children’s rights. Previous Vito Russo Award honorees include Cynthia Nixon, Suze Orman, Rosie O’Donnell, Alan Cumming, Nathan Lane, Elton John, Liz Smith, k.d. lang, David LaChapelle, Brian Graden, and Tom Ford.
    .
    “Ricky coming out was a game changer for many gay and transgender Latino children, who for too long, did not have many out gay people to look up to,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios. “Through his music, videos and interviews, Ricky has sent an important message that our community wants the same things all people do: an equal chance to raise our families and take care of our loved ones.”

  • no need for drama..

    @simple: Adam is more than happy to support the gay community, even back when he was still on Idol at the press conference he talked about civil rights issues when it was not expected of contestants to.

    He has helped and participated with gay rights but also bisexual, lesbian, transgender, transexual and queer rights. He was invited to Elton’s marriage equality dinner only a few weeks ago and has been involved with The Trevor Project since last year amongst various other campaigns.

    He also has his own charities DonorsChoose and Charity:Water helping raise over $1million for charity.

    He said parents should not put celebrities on pedestals and turn entertainers into role models — it’s up to the individual to decide for themselves and often that person will become a role model by ‘accident’, by just being themselves and being true to who they are making no apologies.

    And @Juny, Ricky (who is friends with Adam) has been ACTIVELY promoting equal rights for years hence the award.

    Adam’s focus is his career, he’s still a newcomer compared to his peers.

  • Tamy

    He should change that outfit, pleaseeee!

    >> And @Juny, Ricky (who is friends with Adam) has been ACTIVELY promoting equal rights for years hence the award.

    Ricky Martin was never true about his choices. He recently opened himself.

  • MM

    Ricky Martin OPENLY supported gay rights while he was still in the CLOSET:

    The murders of James Byrd, Matthew Shepard, Jorge Steven Lopez, Marcelo Lucero, Luis Ramirez and countless others who were victims of violent “hate crimes” should be completely unacceptable to every human being; because we’re all human beings. It’s up to us to change the paradigm. I hear the world “tolerance” thrown around in the media when it comes to cases like the ones I mentioned above. One of the meanings of tolerance is “the capacity to endure pain or hardship.” Another is “the act of allowing something.” To me, those don’t seem to encompass acceptance, by any definition. So how about this? Instead of saying “we need to tolerate diversity” why not say, “we need to accept diversity.”

    Accepting diversity is the first and most important step we can take towards eliminating hate crimes and uniting humanity.

    A-hole you may be gay but you are not a female.

    ^ Your comment is horrific, you have to be sick for leaving that kind of comment under a gay rights protection related discussion.
