Adam Lambert Says It Was 'Tricky' To Balance Coming Out & His Career After 'American Idol'

Adam Lambert sits down to speak at the Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre on Thursday evening (May 31) in London, England.

The 36-year-old entertainer joined members to discuss homophobia, his own experience of coming out and his personal journey at the center, which aims to support, educate and inspire LGBT youth.

“After American Idol for a year it was all anyone wanted to talk about in the media,” Adam expressed about coming out. “Part of me was like this is cool, this is important and I’m comfortable with my sexuality. But it also became weird because I was like I also sing, and I have a record that I’d love you to hear. It was tricky to balance it.”

“Now we’re at a point where other artists are out, and the landscape has changed,” Adam added. “Watching the queer movement over the past ten years has been awesome – we’ve come so far, you can see the conversation starting and things are really changing. Making it more than just gay or straight. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I’m very proud of that.”
