===========================================

So here is my story !  I have been asked by many how I find and organize all this Adam info and the truth is, I’ve been researching and compiling everything about Adam Lambert  since  June 2009!

I’ve watched every season of AI (except the current one) and I loved Adam right from the audition. However, when he sang Satisfaction and looked into the camera and moved his right shoulder, I was gone!  Totally mesmerized by this man.   Even though I have had favorites contestants each season, the Adam Lambert effect was something  I had not experienced! 

So that night of Satisfaction, I googled “Adam Lambert”  and found the  “Crawl Through Fire” video from Zodiac Club.  OMG!  Shared it with a number of family members and friends who were watching Idol. Adam is gorgeous, mega talented  and gay was my assessment of the situation.

Couldn’t stop thinking about Adam Lambert and lived last winter (which was pretty horrible in many other ways) waiting for Tuesday and Wednesday nights.  I followed every performance and got a bit more on Youtube and loved it all.  I enjoyed the energetic performances like Black and White, Born to Be Wild and Whole Lotta Love  more than the emotional ones. I loved Adam with his hair down and rocking crazy clothes.  Of  course, I love them all now!

When Adam came in second, I was angry and hurt like so many! Perhaps that caused me to become even more involved with all the googling and reading every article, watching every video and trying to make sense of that gigantic mistake that America made!

On May 26, the day it was opened, I joined Adam Official, my first fan club ever and I spent a great deal of time there.  Lots of good info.  Oh, my name on AO was Gloriousca. It’s now ladybeth cause they banned me again!

On June 3, I read an article titled “What is it about Adam Lambert?”  Written by Allegra Huston, it made some good points and gave me much to think about in regards to how I was reacting to Adam.  I was feeling excited and happy.

I was also reading a book at that time called Find Your Courage, a book I really loved. I kept thinking that if I could only absorb and apply all of the info in that book, I could be who I knew I really was. As  I read the pages, I could see that watching Adam navigate his new path was a perfect demonstration of  the recommendations made.  He was and is a fabulous role model for all.. young and old.

Back to Allegra, within a few days, there were several hundred comments posted on the article.  It had sparked something in many women and all sorts of confessions and comments were left by women, young and old and  even great grandmothers. I read and reread the comments and found myself laughing out loud in public places and wanting to connect with some of these women who seemed to be willing to let go of their masks and let their true selves out.

Over time, a number of us became regular posters on the site as we all continued to discuss Adam Lambert and our lives.  We chatted daily and I became a major information provider  for the site.  I’m not sure why it worked out this way except that maybe I was so  hungry for all info about Adam Lambert and wanted to see everything.  I ended up with lists of Websites, Articles, Interviews, Fan tributes, Pictures, Reviews, …. Adam Lambert right from the start.  (I’ve posted the fan tributes and all the rest will come eventually)   I was particularly fascinated with the words of Adam Lambert and put together a thread on AO of quotes from and about him called Diamonds of the Rock God.  Also want to say that deep inside, I believed there was a higher purpose for what I was doing but I had no idea what it was.

(Im the blonde in the black dress standing right next to Adam!)

Many of you  met me at the Idol concert in Syracuse where I wore my Adam Lambert cape.  It’s a beautiful cape a la Katy Perry that one of my closest Adam friends made for my birthday last September.  So many people took pictures of it in Syracuse…. I was amazed.  I also had it at the Kradison concert in NYC where Adam acknowledged it and I nearly cried!

I got onto twitter late last year and shared some stories and quotes with followers.  As it started to grow, I found it difficult to keep track of the daily posts. I began to think about a blog and joined this  Wordpress site.  I have learned through Adam that the best way to learn is to jump right in and not be afraid to take risks.  If you had any idea how little I knew about technology last year, you would be shocked.  But I’m not afraid to try something new and I’m not afraid to make mistakes.  I also have the belief that all of this is happening for a reason which I do not have to understand to move forward with.

 One of the best things for me about this  journey is that I really do not care what anyone thinks about what I am doing… if they don’t like it, they can move on to something else.  And partly because of my confidence, many people I know support and love my passion even if they might be whispering about how crazy I am behind my back!

Really doesn’t matter.  I have been very successful in my life.  I ran a large, business for more than 25 years, raised two beautiful, successful children who are young adults,  have a husband who loves me and lots of good friends. I do some incredible volunteer work that I’m very proud of and I feel like I have already made a difference in the world.

 But something was seriously wrong until Adam Lambert sang Satisfaction and changed all of my perceptions of myself. When I first entered the business world , clients would ask where my boss was.  The world was not used to seeing women in powerful places.  And ladies  like me, grew up without many role models for how to  be a complete person  in the world.  Years of motherhood and challenges trying to balance work and family left me in a place where I had accomplished a great deal but was still feeling the pressure to be a person I didn’t find inspiring. 

Adam Lambert and his philosophy and his being out there in some way gave me permission to be the person I had dreamed of becoming, when I  thought I could have it all.  He has helped me to be in the moment and to be passionate and joyful. He showed me through his beautiful example that it is OK to be authentic in the world in spite of the fact that many might not approve!

OMG… I wasn’t planning to write a book about myself.   My goal here is to hopefully share some Adam inspiration.

I think I’ve said most of what I wanted to share.  If there is anything else, please ask me… or tell me to stop it already.  Adam Lambert shifted my life in so many ways.  He is the best entertainer ever but he is also a great role model and therapist.  I  have questioned so many of my beliefs because of Adam and many of them have changed as a result.

So thank you followers for reading this.  Writing this blog daily is so much fun.  I do believe its going to continue to evolve  and I’m very excited about the future.

Thank you so much for your support and love and for all the new friends in places all over the world.  I am humbled by your appreciation for this labour of love and I look forward to what the future brings.

Hope to meet many of you at future concerts and events!

Love you all and especially love Adam Lambert!

  11. Thank you for all you do and for sharing your special story. You are an amazing woman! I always searched for the Gloriousca threads on AO because they were so informative. Now this blog is one of the first things I click on in my daily e-mail. Thanks again for helping to brighten my day with everything Adam. He is such a ray of sunshine in my life.

    I look forward to meeting you and so many others at Foxwoods next month!

  14. Gloria, thank you for your story. It is an amazing story in so many ways and yet something we can all relate to in so many ways. What a journey we are all sharing, with you and Xena & Juneau leading and inspiring us every step of the way, of course with Adam as our muse. Can’t wait to see what next year brings !!!

    Keep quoting Adam daily, we’re all listening,

    Comment by Katesistergood — May 28, 2010 @ 11:10 pm

  15. I finally got around to reading your story and was amazed! I thought you were a totally different person, which only goes to show how greatly diversified is the appeal of “OUR BELOVED”!!! I’ve been feeling a little foolish about being so obsessed with this wonderful being, but your story REALLY inspired me to continue following every detail of his journey to being the biggest and best of ALL TIME!!!
    I truly believe that and thanks to you and the wonderful work (?) you do, I shall persevere along with all the other wonderful people who feel the way I do. It gets
    so hard sometimes, tho, doesn’t it? Thanx again.

    Comment by cybergranny7 — May 29, 2010 @ 4:25 pm

  16. Thanks cybergranny7. I’m intrigued to know who you thought I was! And so happy if my story helps to give you permission to continue to experience the joy of loving Adam!

    Comment by adamquotedaily — May 29, 2010 @ 4:43 pm

  17. I belong to many Adam fan sites. I found Adamquotedaily on twitter and subscribed. I really love this blog. I pretty much delete everything all of my other emails, except for the Adamquotedaily’s Blogs. I have a special folder set up for all of my Adam Lambert News and that is where all of these blogs go. I don’t really need to go to any other place to get the latest on Adam. I really appreciate this as I don’t have a lot of time to go searching myself. Thank you for doing this and, yes, I am a huge Adam fan since I first saw him audition! I now look forward to each day to see a tweet from Adam, watch his latest interview, read the latest article(s) about him, and watch all of the fantastic fan videos created by his other loving fans over and over again! He truly has me spellbound! I can’t get enough of him. I comment everywhere I can and am so excited for him and about him! Thanks again for all the wonderful work you do on this Blog. I just love it!

  18. Thanks so much. Glad to be of service! Always interested in feedback, BTW

    Comment by adamquotedaily — May 29, 2010 @ 6:03 pm

  19. Thanks so much for channeling your passion into your great blog site. I am so inspired by the energy unleashed by our love for Adam. I very much echo your feeling that this is all for some greater purpose- and it’s no mystery what that is. It’s the best and biggest purpose, to be as alive and present and ourselves as we can be! Passion, love, desire, in whatever form they manifest, are the best energy sources for creativity and change to be found. Forget oil, gas and coal- if we could harness the electricity created at an Adam show, we could transform the whole Glam Nation! I love hearing from others who have been struck by the Adam lightening bolt, and appreciate how each one of us contributes the bits of info that most move us. Together we create a very positive, loving virtual reality online – made manifest by folks like you who are moved to organize it all! I am working on channeling this wellspring through my life to energize other interests and pursuits, while still drinking in the flow of music, beauty, surprises, excitement, adventures and magic stirred up by the super-natural Adam and his adoring fans.

  20. You said it Christine. Thank you so much for expressing so beautifully what so many of us are feeling. Check my blog tomorrow… it needs to be seen by everyone! MUAH!

  21. I have seen things you have written on Facebook, but I didn’t really see your actual site till recently. I LOVE IT!!!! You have done an AMAZING job writing everything about Adam. I am VERY happy to know that there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many people and fans out there who feel the same as I do about Adam. I want to know EVERYTHING about him: if he is still single, what he does when he is not doing his singing/photoshoots/touring, etc. (And if love him like I do, wouldn’t you just LOVE to see how BIG that GLAMBULGE REALLY IS!!!!!!) Even if he is gay!!!! DAMMMMMMMMMM–that get’s me every time I see it!!!!! I never really watched Idol. The first time I heard Adam when he was on the Ellen DeGeneres and he sang “WYFM” and I fell in LOVE. I immediately went online and listened to more and also went out and bought his CD. I have listened to that CD over and over and over and over!! I have also put ALOT of his songs on an MP3 that I bought JUST FOR his songs. I have to go online EVERY day–I NEED to see his face, hear his voice and watch him sing something–I just can’t go one day without seeing him. I WISH SOOOOOOOOOO much that I could actually MEET him in person and be friends with him!!!! You are lucky to be going to his concert in PA–I live in South Florida and he is not coming this far south. I keep trying to send him messages for him to come to Ft. Lauderdale–I really hope he does. I want to thank you for this website–you are doing an amazing job covering EVERYTHING Adam–I look forward to reading you now every day. I tried to get that book from Amazon, but they didn’t have it. I will check the other website to see if I can get it–I REALLY want that book!!!! I have Adam as my wallpaper on my laptop, PC, cellphone–I have ringtone of Pick U Up for my cell and Strut as my message tone. I am just happy that I am not alone with how I feel about Adam Lambert—I LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Look forward to hearing from you and keep up the GREAT WORK on ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Well Robin! Thank you. It certainly seems as though you are in the right place now! And I can’t even imagine how much time you could spend just getting caught up on all the posts here! Enjoy and keep in touch and if you have any questions or concerns, send them on!

    As far as the book goes, you should be able to order it from Xena and Juneau’s salon site. If you have any problem, let me know and I will have Xena contact you directly!

    Comment by adamquotedaily — May 31, 2010 @ 5:29 pm

  23. Ditto on everything everyone has said. It is so wild to read everyone’s comments – we are all so alike, it’s just amazing.

    I love getting your emails everyday. I also follow your updates on Twitter. Thanks so much for compiling all of the great photos, videos, quotes, tweets, etc. When I first fell for Adam, I was scanning YouTube constantly to find the newest videos but I couldn’t keep up. Life became so much easier when I found your blog. Now I am able to find time to get other things done in the “non-Adam” aspects of my life (though he is ALWAYS on my mind).

    I can’t wait to see our muse live in concert. To just be in the same room with him is something I am so looking forward to.

    Thanks again!

  24. Gloria,

    This is the 1st time i read your story eventhough I have been checking your website everyday for many months because i have been so busy…busy reading your updates of ADAM, that’s WHY !!!. The first time that i found your website, OMG i was hooked and been “so busy” receiving all the beautiful pix of ADAM and articles about ADAM and VIDEO of ADAM and so on…and …and…boy, just by reading it, keep me SO BUSY ALL WEEK! Wonder HOW YOU HAVE TIME TO POST THEM ALL up here for us 24/7…hmmm… do you eat, sleep, cook?…==> This come from my heart: Gloria, i appreciate so much for all of your passion and energies to make this happen for all of us !! Thank you SO MUCH for everything….

    Comment by libraglamb — June 5, 2010 @ 4:38 pm

  25. Thank you so much for your sweet comments… I would prefer not to eat, sleep and cook but occasionally manage some of them! I am so happy that my labour of love is helping you to keep up with all things Adam! I do love this job!

    Comment by adamquotedaily — June 6, 2010 @ 7:52 am

  26. When I read, “When Adam came in second, I was angry and hurt like so many! Perhaps that caused me to become even more involved with all the googling and reading every article, watching every video and trying to make sense of that gigantic mistake that America made!” it is exactly how I felt. It is what prompted me to write “American Idol Vote Scam” which is available at Amazon. It is an expose on the inherently unfair voting system and what happened in Arkansas to change the outcome of Season 8. I gathered the data that proves that Adam was more popular in 49 states among the most likely American idol voters. What they put together in Arkansas to defeat Adam included a rogue AT&T executive giving out phones and a stadium full of students power texting. Millions of votes were produced while at the same time they used the university computer labs to block Adam’s phone lines. Because you are a dedicated fan who deserves to know the whole story I will send you a free promotional copy with no obligation. Look for the email that is from support@AmericanIdolVoteScam.com. I enjoyed your blog. Thanks Kerry

  27. What never ceases to amaze me…is the number of wonderful, intelligent, multifaceted women of all ages (granted there are men too, but let’s be realistic)…who have been drawn to Adam Lambert. I immediately have felt a kinship with all of you…even on the web. I attended the Nokia with two gfs who are AL fans, but not as obsessed as I am. We all got talking to some of the most fascinating people while waiting on the cement in the heat. It was wonderful.

    Your site is terrific. All of this confirms my positivity in the world full of challenges.

    Comment by Lauren — August 28, 2010 @ 7:33 pm

  30. Hello Dear Friend, We’ve never met but I feel like I’ve know you for a long time. You are “ONE” of the reasons I came to this fan club. there our so many of us that LOVE OUR ADAM but I feel like you have done so much work to get to know him that a lot of us only dream about doing. I admire women who take control of their lives and make a difference in this world! I didn’t grow up with a positive female role model and still find so few. That doesn’t make a difference now. I’ve taught my two grown daughters and son that women are as good as men if not better and to treat them with respect. I haven’t had the corporate world in my life but that’s okay. Your energy and love for Adam flows through your words and touches others lives. You have a gift and I’m glad your using it in a beautiful positive way. Thank you for your work and love, I will be waiting to hear from you!! Elly (AdamsLady)

  32. Adam has touched all of our lives in ways we never dreamed possible. Thank you for your hard work and labor of love to share with us so much about Adam that many of us have neither the time nor skill to aquire. Having so much information in one location is wonderful. We’re all on a journey and Adam is taking us there. I don’t know what we’ll find out about ourselves, about Adam, or our world view. What I do know is that everything changes after Adam enters our lives. Like he says in FYE, “once I’m in, I own your heart!” So true! Peace & love.

  36. FANTABULOUS AQD!! I could have written this part:
    “I have learned through Adam that the best way to learn is to jump right in and not be afraid to take risks. If you had any idea how little I knew about technology last year, you would be shocked. But I’m not afraid to try something new and I’m not afraid to make mistakes. I also have the belief that all of this is happening for a reason which I do not have to understand to move forward with.

And partly because of my confidence, many people I know support and love my passion even if they might be whispering about how crazy I am behind my back!”

    Family and friends don’t get it. So I’m finding my own Glamily! I now have seniority over who I am! Thank you, Adam! And thank you, AQD and Glamily for keeping us all connected in this amazing web of LOVE!!!

  37. Thanks Mary. Great to have you along!

    Comment by adamquotedaily — October 4, 2010 @ 4:00 pm

  38. Mary S–I have the same kind of friends. I get criticized for loving Adam SOOOOOOOO much. I get told “I don’t know what you see in him”, or if I am singing a song to myself and I get a comment “Oh God–can we listen to Jimmy Buffet”. That hurts my feelings when these people saying them are supposed to be friends. I need someone to tell me how do you deal with it. Reading your post just now I understand what you are saying–I have to just say I don’t care what others say–I LOVE ADAM and if they don’t like it–oh well!!!!!!!! I know that I am in a GLAMILY too of Love, Positiveness–everything Adam stands for. And I am EXTREMELY glad that I have met online so many people who feel the same way about our Glitter Baby–our MAN–ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Robin — October 11, 2010 @ 6:42 pm

  39. Ok don’t know if this counts toward the contest but here goes.

    My name is Geraaldine King, I am a 38yr old divorcee and I have a very beautiful 8yr old girl. I am a lesbian and I am free to be and be comfortable in being so.

    I knew I was different from other girls from the start. At 14 I had my first sexual expeirence with a girl (my neighbour). Through school I kept mostly to myself and was picked on. I read a lot of books and lived in my own world. High School was the worst, girls had boyfriends and guys had girlfriends. I so wanted to be like that, but I didn’t look at guys like that. During the summer of my SR. Year of high I tried to date a guy that I worked with. Yuck! Well it didn’t work out. The following year I went to D.C. To go to the University.The campus was full of gay and lesbians. I also went to Dupont Circle and I felt free and could be out and not have to worry about what people thought. Came home from school and told my grandmother what I was. She was very accepting. She raised me so I think she knew. My mom asked me if I liked girls and I told her no. I just didn’t feel comfortable telling her.Later much later I told. Her but she seemed to ignore it and me. Some years later I met a man that I fell in love with. ( Yes a man, no not love as in sex, real love), I was introduced by a friend at work. We started to hang out,( he is gay)and went to his house. I looked at ppictures of queens and knew most of them. He asked me if I knew this one he pointed out, I said yes and she is sexy too. He said that’s me ( Crystle Colby). Eight months after that day he asked me to marry him, (gay marriage was still not legal or recoginized) I said yes. I loved the woman in him and the fact that he could be strong too.Noovember of that same year I gave him what he always wanted. I had a baby girl. She is his princess. We were out and open with her and we are teaching her love aand acceptance.
    We were watching American Idol and she said to me, mom is he like daddy? I saw this guy on stage singing his heart out and he was beautiful and different. I told her yes I think he is. She said I like him I want him to win. That was the first time I heard of Adam Lambert. He lost but he won because he was out. And proud. He didn’t care what people thought about him or about being gay. He is a talented, beautiful human being.
    Through him and his actions I can be me and be free and also raise a young child to be open minded, loving, accepting, and grounded.

    Adam I Love You, and Thank You!

    This is the short version of the story. Didn’t want to take up too much space.

  41. I agree with you too. 🙂 I mean seriously why does it matter if a guy’s gay? So you can’t listen to his music or like him just because he’s gay?? It’s just offensive and mean. 😦 He has an amazing voice and he’s very talented, so those people are just being haters 🙂

  42. Thanks for sharing your letter (and Adam story) with us. I could identify with much of what you said. It is synchronicity that Adam arrived at a time when many of us were entering the Third Act of our lives. It is a time for us to finally be who we were meant to be and we don’t give a hoot what others think of us. Hearing about other Adam fans going through this experience adds support and encouragement for me to be in the moment and follow my intuition. I have learned so much about other people’s lives by following Adam and that has made my view of the world broader. I am so happy that I found your blog. Have a fabulous visit with Adam!!

  43. Gloria,

    I’ve been reading your blog daily for several months now. Totally hooked. And not only because you give us the most detailed account of all things Adam. I feel the same type of energy from you as from Adam: so loving, warm, positive, enthusiastic, passionate and humorous too. As many before me said, Adam is much more than a genius singer, he is a very special human being. And so are you. Thank you for everything you do. Thrilled that you will meet with Adam again!

  44. Thank you so much for your sweetness! I appreciate you and your words more than you can ever imagine! My goal is to always do my best to give off the type of energy you describe and I am touched that you have felt it. XO Gloria

  45. Thank you so much! There are so many of us and it is wonderful to be part of a community supporting every one’s right to be themselves. Adam is an amazing person bringing people together. My “Healing the World, one person at a time” mission is so simple. Just expose more people to the Adam Lambert effect! XO Gloria

  46. Gloria,

    I wrote a comment but not sure I posted it, LOL. Thank you so much! I’m very touched too. Today’s blog is incredible, just overwhelming. I absolutely loved Adam’s interview in Houston. I dream of seeing him on SNL. I think he would be a perfect host for that show. And the performances were stunning. Loved the funky version of Fever. Wonder if Adam ever considered releasing a funk version of that song

  47. Gloria,

    I believe you have one of the best fan stories I have every read, and I believe I can safely say this, I can relate to your story a lot! I have never had a role model or inspiration (of course I’m still pretty young), and all the girls at my age say it’s either Taylor Swift or Justin Beiber is theirs, but I just don’t see what I see in them as in what I see in Adam , you know? You’re right, he is the perfect role model. 🙂 So when I meet him someday, I am going to say he is my role model, and my idol. So, you’ve done a good job here Gloria, thanks. (I think this is where we hug now, oh did I mention, I’m a big hugger. 🙂
