Adam Lambert placed second on “American Idol” about 14 years ago. Now, he’s conquered a category all his own. A big part of that journey? His queerness.
“I like not being like everybody else. I like finding my individuality,” Lambert says over Zoom in April. His effervescent and electric tone soars across the screen: “Queerness in my career has given me a certain amount of purpose and drive, to prove that queer people are valid and can be successful and can connect and deserve every opportunity that our straight friends get.”
Since “Idol,” the singer, 41, has guest starred on “Glee,” toured with Queen, started a LGBTQ nonprofit called the Feel Something Foundation, had his feature film debut in “Fairyland” and won a Creative Coalition award for his work elevating queer visibility in independent cinema. (That’s all?!)
