Rocker Adam Lambert to headline Maryland marriage equality benefit
Adam Lambert, the glam-rocker who rose to prominence on television’s “American Idol,” is the latest celebrity to be enlisted by the campaign to uphold Maryland’s marriage law.
Lambert has been booked next week for a benefit concert at the 9:30 Club in the District, with proceeds to go to Marylanders for Marriage Equality, the group leading the campaign for November’s ballot measure known as Question 6.
Singer-songwriter Adam Lambert poses during Spring 2013 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on Sept 11. Tuesday’s fundraiser featuring Lambert, who is openly gay, follows a star-studded event pulled together to benefit the same group last week in New York. That gathering included the likes of actress Susan Sarandon, former first daughter Barbara Bush and hockey star Sean Avery.
