Adam Lambert receives the Key to Miami

Glam icon, Adam Lambert, received the Key to the City of Miami today (April 14) ahead of headlining Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival this evening.

The Key to the City was presented by Miami Beach Mayor, Matti Bower, to Lambert for: "being brave enough to be openly gay on American Idol."

Lambert accepted the Key and said: "Thank you! I'm openly happy right now for this key. I don't know what the hell it really opens, but I'm certainly going to find out."

Yesterday (April 13) Lambert attended a press conference in his honour, and told the awaiting media and fans:

"The energy's really high and everybody's feeling kind of unified. I think that's going to be a very nice family feel for the show.

Lambert went on to say that it has become more important than ever for him to connect with the gay and lesbian community:

"People are really excited that our voices are being heard. It's becoming main stream."
