Update on Adam Lambert's Semi-Closety Marketing: A Letter About The Letter
Yesterday's post detailing Aaron Hicklin's editor's letter in Out magazine about the namby-pamby management of Adam Lambert raised a firestorm of response, the Claymates--sorry, "Glamberts"--rising in force to defend their man, no matter what sexuality-cloaking steps his handlers might take in promoting him.
