Adam Lambert has been announced as the official headliner of this year’s Pride in London concert and has also released the event’s official song.
The former GAY TIMES cover star teamed up with producer Sigala on the track, which is a cover of the 1978 anthem ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’ by Sylvester.
He will take to the stage on 1 July, with further performers to be announced in due course.
Pride in London’s CEO, Christopher Joell-Deshields, said: “We’re thrilled talented pop vocalist and Queen collaborator, Adam Lambert, has chosen to launch his latest single, ‘You Make Me Feel Mighty Real’, as the official song for this year’s Pride in London.
“Adam’s songs are all about inspiring others to be who they truly are, which couldn’t be more fitting following the launch of our campaign, ‘Never March Alone’, which shows allyship for the trans community.
“We cannot wait to see Adam and other talented artists from the LGBT+ community come together on 1st July live across our stages.”
Pride in London recently announced its powerful ‘Never March Alone’ campaign
Pride in London recently unveiled its ‘Never March Alone’ campaign which emphasises the importance of supporting members of the trans+ community.
The new campaign will seek to show the joy within the trans+ community and the brilliant, multi-faceted individuals that it encompasses.
‘Never March Alone’ will come to life through a series of photographic and video portraits of members of the trans and non-binary community and those who stand with them.
These will be shown across digital billboards, social media and will help frame the content on the stage during Pride in London.
London celebrated the ‘biggest Pride in British history’ in 2022
Last year, London celebrated what is believed to be the largest Pride in British history with more than 1.5 million attendees.
The events held on 2 July marked Pride in London’s first showing in the capital since 2019 after the COVID-19 pandemic forced it to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021.
This year also coincided with the 50th anniversary of the UK’s first Pride march, with veterans from the Gay Liberation Front leading the parade with chants such as “3, 5, 7, 9, lesbians are mighty fine”.
Pride in London will take place on 1 July this year.
