Pride Live has announced its fourth annual Stonewall Day, a global campaign to elevate awareness and support the legacy of the Stonewall riots and LGBTQ+ activism. Adam Lambert, on behalf of his Feel Something Foundation, will host a virtual Stonewall Day 2021 celebration on Sunday, June 6, where he will curate a diverse group of musical performances and presentations. The full line-up is yet to be announced.
“Given the success and impact Stonewall Day has achieved since its inception, we are thrilled to welcome Adam to support our global effort on behalf of the Stonewall legacy,” president of the Pride Live board of directors Dr. Yvette C. Burton said. “His activism and passion define that legacy, and we are proud to have Adam and the Feel Something Foundation as our partners in good.”
Lambert added: “I am so excited to have the Feel Something Foundation partner with Pride Live’s Stonewall Day. Together we will not only advance the legacy of the Stonewall Rebellion, but we will also support LGBTQ+ organizations and issues that continue to disproportionately affect the LGBTQ+ community.”
Additionally, Lambert will host two 20-minute livestreams, both titled ‘Stonewall Day Unplugged’, on February 18 and April 22, where he will discuss the Stonewall legacy with special guests.
The line-up for Stonewall Day 2020 included President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden, Taylor Swift, former President Barack Obama, Ellen DeGeneres, and dozens of other presenters.
Queen + Adam Lambert’s acclaimed Live Around The World entered the UK album chart at No. 1 on release prior to Christmas. Queen’s first album with latter-day frontman Lambert became their tenth chart-topping album in the UK, and first since Made In Heaven, just shy of 25 years ago in November 1995. Live Around The World beat Blackpink’s The Album to the top spot during the two albums’ week of release.
Lambert commented: “I am beyond thrilled that we are No.1!!!!!! As I always say, I am the luckiest person in the world to be able to work with Brian and Roger, and I’m so glad people are enjoying this album so much! The fact that we can celebrate the iconic music of Queen all these years later is incredible.”
