Homophobes came for the wrong ones this weekend. Adam Lambert is clapping back in defense of his boyfriend and we love to see it!

Over the weekend, the "Mad World" singer shared an Instagram story standing up for his boyfriend Oliver Gliese, and defending him from homophobic attacks on social media. These attacks came to the surface after paparazzi photos of the couple enjoying a night out in West Hollywood circulated online.

Lambert and Gliese have reportedly been dating since 2020, so it’s completely understandable that the singer felt protective about his partner being attacked online. The American Idol alum wrote in an Instagram story:

“Oli and I had a fun night out! Rare to encounter [paparazzi] in WeHo – so retro. Haha. Lifts my spirits to see support in the comments. Also appalled to see the obnoxious homophobia and ignorance plaguing people right now. Oli identifies as a he. He has wicked style and refuses to conform to the societal norms regarding his fashion choices.”

He added, “He is beautiful and brave and daring. He’s a leader, not a follower. One of the many things I love about him! We are very happy together and if the haters don’t like it, we don’t really give a fuck. Grow up and challenge yourself to explore tolerance. We are all just trying to stay happy and fulfilled with our lives. Chances are, if you’re busy trolling us online, you’re miserable in your own life and can’t deal with your issues.”

Lambert released his fifth studio album, High Drama, in February 2023. Unlike his previous projects, High Drama is a collection of covers – including songs like “Holding Out for a Hero,” “Getting Older,” and “You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real).” This year, Lambert also starred in Andrew Durham’s latest film, a coming-of-age drama titled Fairyland.

It’s unfortunate that so many critics still feel like it’s their right to scrutinize someone for not wearing clothes that have traditionally been assigned to that person’s gender. At the end of the day, Gliese isn’t hurting anyone by being his most authentic self and dressing however he likes.

When it comes to Lambert and Gliese's love, the haters never stood a chance!
