3. TV: Behind the Music: Adam Lambert
In the August 7 episode of VH1’s Behind the Music series, Grammy-nominated glam-rocker Adam Lambert opens up about his gay awakening in sixth grade, the contractual American Idol closet, his “coming-out” interview with Rolling Stone, and much more. The dramatic exposé features never-before-seen home videos and candid interviews with family, friends, and music industry folks such as Barry Weiss and Idol winner Kris Allen.
2. FILM: The Help
Emma Stone stars as a young writer exposing the injustices suffered by black housemaids in 1960s Mississippi in this adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s novel by gay screenwriter-director Tate Taylor (pictured, with Stone). “I didn’t live through the ’60s,” said Stone in an interview with The Advocate, “so one of the ways I was able to really understand that struggle was by looking at what’s happening in America now with the gay community.”
