Adam Lambert and Frank Ocean both won trophies at last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco. Melanie Brown from the Spice Girls presented the onetime American Idol-er with the Davidson/Valenti Award which is given to a member of the LGBT community who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights. Meanwhile, Lambert and Ocean tied in the category of Outstanding Musical Artist. Other awards went to the film Any Day Now and to writer Marc Lamont Hill for his article, “Why Aren’t We Fighting for CeCe McDonald?”
After being presented with the Davidson/Valenti Award Lambert praised the “Stonewall generation who paved the way, they are proud rebels who have waved the rainbow banner.” You can see Lambert’s entire speech below.
