When word came out that Proposition 8 had once again been overturned in California, Adam Lambert was among the many celebrities that took to Twitter to share the good news. Adam re-tweeted to his more than 1.3 million followers a message from GLAAD that said: “Breaking: Anti-gay #Prop8 was once again ruled unconstitutional! http://bit.ly/wDorCG #LGBT #MarriageEquality” The LGBT community and their supporters are celebrating across the state, including gay celebrities such as Adam. Another example is Ellen DeGeneres, who tweeted, “Today we took another step towards equality. #Prop8 was found unconstitutional again. I couldn’t be happier.“
Although Adam is obviously happy about the news, that doesn’t mean he’s rushing to the altar in the near future. In fact, he just told a Finnish newspaper a few days ago that although it’s sweet that he is nicknamed the “son-in-law” in Finland, marriage is not coming soon. His comments about the subject are roughly translated below:
Maybe one day I will get married, but it is a matter that should not be rushed. This is only my second long relationship, so I’m only just learning to live in a relationship. I am a 30-year-old, but as far as socializing is concerned, I feel like a twenty-something, because I did not have much experience of it. Getting married seems all the more distant. [sic]
Adam Lambert’s new album, Trespassing, comes out next month and includes a song related to this subject. The track, Outlaws of Love, is about the adversities that the gay community faces. Hopefully, now that Proposition 8 was found unconstitutional, this will lead to more obstacles being lifted for Adam and LGBT people everywhere.
