Adam Lambert and his Feel Something Foundation are taking control of this year’s Stonewall Day, a global campaign to raise awareness of the fight for LGBTQ+ equality. He’ll curate the music for this 2021 installment, now in its fourth year, and also host two events in the run-up to the June 6 event.
Stonewall Day is a charity organized by Pride Live, a social advocacy and community engagement organization. In a statement, Adam says, “Together we will not only advance the legacy of the Stonewall Rebellion, we will also support LGBTQ+ organizations and issues that continue to disproportionately affect the LGBTQ+ community.”
Stonewall Day commemorates the 1969 uprising at New York City’s Stonewall Inn by gay patrons against a police raid. The event is recognized as the start of the gay liberation movement and the fight for gay rights.
Adam promises a line up of artists from “diverse genres, generations and cultural backgrounds” for Stonewall Day. The lead-in events, Stonewall Day Unplugged, takes place February 18 and April 22.
Each event will feature a 20-minute livestream with Adam and special guests discussing Stonewall Day and its legacy, current events, and LGBTQ+ artists on the rise.
