Adam delves deep into their personal narratives, unearthing their lived experiences and delving into the significance of embracing their true selves while making remarkable music that resonates with the community.

Emerging as the runner-up on American Idol in 2009, Adam later achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the first openly gay artist to top the U.S. Billboard album chart with his second album. The documentary dives into the nuanced perspectives of the British LGBTQ+ journey, drawing insightful comparisons to Adam’s own experiences in the United States.

Adam Lambert said: “LGBTQ+ representation in the music industry has increased significantly over the last decade. It’s a pleasure to work with ITV and the Lifted Entertainment team in creating a documentary exploring the intersection of music and Pride as well as some incredible LGBTQ+ artists embracing their authentic selves and the impact they’ve had on pop culture and the obstacles queer artists have faced.”

Katie Rawcliffe, Head of Entertainment Commissioning ITV added: “We are thrilled to have Adam on board to give us his first-hand experience of the music industry. He will bring important issues to our attention as he discusses the difficulties often faced by the LGBTQ+ community in the entertainment business and I’m fascinated to hear what he discovers.”
