Last week, The Advocate invited readers to take part in their annual “Day In Gay America” series, featuring real live homosexuals going about their day and providing photographic evidence.
As part of the project, The Advocate followed Adam Lambert as he prepared for his cover shoot and interview, documenting mundane yet somehow interesting adventures such as pumping gas and downing a wheatgrass shot.
