adam lambert 320 getty Adam Lambert set to perform at GLAAD Media AwardsThe Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) was not only in the media for Ricky Martin‘s coming out on Monday (March 29), but also to announce that another pop star, Adam Lambert, will perform at their awards next month.

The annual GLAAD Media Awards honor media and recognize celebs for their “fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.”

Glambert will perform in a star-filled room including 2010 honorees Drew Barrymore and Wanda Sykes.

Other guests scheduled to appear at the awards are the cast of “Glee,” “Sex and the City’s” Jason Lewis, “Grey’s Anatomy’s” Eric Dane and Constance McMillen, the 18-year-old whose high school canceled her prom rather than allow Constance and her girlfriend to attend together.
The “American Idol” Season 8 runner-up, who came out of the closet pretty much as soon as “Idol” wrapped, is excited about his opportunity to perform at the GLAAD awards on April 17.
