Adam Lambert Announces A New Collaboration To Host Stonewall Day 2021
Queen touring lead vocalist in addition to his successful solo career, Adam Lambert shared a post on his official Twitter page announcing that he is going to lead the Stonewall Day 2021 on behalf of his non-profit organization, Feel Something Foundation, in collaboration with Pride Love.
The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous protests by members of the LGBTQ+ community in response to a police raid that began on June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
Patrons of the Stonewall, other Village lesbian and gay bars, and neighborhood street people fought back when the police became physically violent. The riots are widely considered to establish one of the most important events leading to the gay liberation movement.
In 2018, 49 years after the uprising, Stonewall Day was announced as a remembrance day by Pride Live, a social advocacy and community engagement organization, during this event, Pride Live introduced their Stonewall Ambassadors program, to raise awareness for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
Since Adam Lambert is a huge supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, he recently shared a post on his official Twitter page announcing that he is going to host the year’s Stonewall Day on behalf of his Feel Something Foundation in partnership with Real Pride on June 6.
Here is what Lambert said:
“So proud to announce that I’ll be curating #StonewallDay 2021 on behalf of my LGBTQ+ non-profit Feel Something Foundation in partnership with Real Pride #SWD2021 on Sunday, June 6.
Check back here soon for more announcements on performers and guests!”
