Gay Pride 2012: More Than 30 Anthems Perfect For Celebrating
'Outlaws Of Love,' Adam Lambert (2012) The "American Idol" alum became the first openly gay performer to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with his album "Trespassing."
However, none of his songs expresses openly gay sentiment as much as "Outlaws of Love," which he premiered at a Canadian music festival in 2011.
"All of the things I've been talking about over the past year, all of it boils down to acceptance and this is a song that I wrote about how it feels, that no matter where you go or where you turn, sometimes it feels like you're just running from the law," he has said of the song.
HUFFPOST GAY VOICES: Adam Lambert Pledges Gay Marriage Support In Maryland Before 'Outlaws Of Love' Performance
Headlining a benefit show for Marylanders for Marriage Equality in support of Question 6, the referendum on the state's Civil Marriage Protection Act, the openly gay pop star noted, "When it comes to these types of conversations, it has nothing to do with what religion or where your moral compass lies...everyone has the right to choose whatever religious or spiritual path that they want to choose, and that's fine. But if I'm going to respect that path, you've got to respect my equal rights."

Apologies for shakiness, taken from 2nd row, squishy crowd and more movement on chorus as you will see. While the audio is a bit boom-box (near speakers) the vocal is flawless (even if boombox speakers nearby).
BEYOND awesome and EPIC vocal & performance, LOVE the choreography with the Vajajays. For purposes of promotion only. All rights reserved to Artist, Sony RCA, MRC, Songwriters.
