LISTEN: Adam Lambert's Song About LGBT Equality

5.11.2012

The music superstar says he was inspired to write 'Outlaws of Love' by the struggle for marriage equality.

Adam Lambert's album Trespassing is gonna be a hit this summer (we're big fans of Cuckoo, but we'll tell you more about that soon enough). He spoke to The Advocate about his track "Outlaws of Love" and said he wrote it "to lament the LGBT community's struggle for equal rights and acceptance. It saddens me to think that we find ourselves essentially 'outlawed' in certain communities because of our basic human desire for companionship. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, however. I am thrilled that President Obama had the guts to speak out —even in an election year — for the traditional American values of justice and equality for all. It's a bold step in the right direction."

Trespassing, the followup to Lambert's hit debut album For Your Entertainment, will be released May 15. Listen to "Outlaws of Love" here.
