Adam Lambert Addresses The Anti-Trans Bills Proposed In America
Adam Lambert, who is the touring member of Queen along with being an LGBTQ+ activist, has recently talked about the anti-trans bills which were proposed in America in an interview for Gay Times, claiming ‘the idea of community is more important than ever.’
As one of the first openly gay musicians at the top of album charts, Adam Lambert is known for his endless support for the LGBTQ+ community. He recently owns a foundation called Feel Good Foundation which focuses on helping and supporting the LGBTQ+ community and was busy curating an event focused on raising awareness of LGBTQ+ issues called Stonewall Day in which queer artists take part.
In a recent interview by Gay Times, Adam was asked several questions regarding his opinions on queer visibility in the music industry, his recent projects, and trans rights. As it can be seen, his main concern was that there are many more queer artists in the industry than before, and it is important to support LGBTQ+ issues.
During the interview, the interviewer asked his opinion about the several anti-trans bills proposed at the state level. Adam answered that he is saddened by these, but he is not surprised as he believes there is a lot of support as much as the opposition for the trans movement and it is a reaction to the change in things.
After he was asked about Biden’s support for the trans community, he claimed that he believes this creates fear in those who oppress it. Adam then agreed with the interviewer that as gay men, they need to support the trans community by empathizing with them and be there with them.
In the interview, the interviewer asked Adam Lambert that:
“As we know there’s still so much more work to be done. In America alone there have been so many anti-trans bills proposed at the State level. Are you shocked by how much legislation is being brought forward that harms trans youth?”
Then Adam answered:
“I’m really sad about it, but I’m not shocked. It’s a reaction to the fact that things are changing. The tide is turning and for as much hate and opposition there is to the trans movement, there’s also a lot of support too. That’s the reason why we’re getting that reaction. People are pushing forward and there’s a real movement happening. It’s going to take a minute, it’s going to be rough, and it’s going to take a little time to balance out, but I think we just have to keep fighting.“
