American Idol alum Adam Lambert has announced the launch of the Feel Something Foundations. His new LGBTQ advocacy group is aimed at supporting “LGBTQ+ organizations that are moving the needle for communities of all ages and backgrounds.” That, according to the singer’s announcement on Instagram.
The organization will choose charities to work with based on the group’s goals to create change in specific LGBTQ life, like education, homelessness, suicide prevention, etc.
A statement released with the announcement also revealed that another goal of the Feel Something Foundation is to “abolish ‘coming out’ as a term used to define someone simply being themselves.”
For those looking to contribute to the organization, the statement also said that there will be fundraising opportunities held in the near future of the campaign. The first, which will be “initiated in the coming weeks,” will offer fans an opportunity to bid on and purchase some of Adam’s best outfits from his decade-spanning career.
This was written about me climbing out of the low period, defying my disillusionment, owning my needs, and opening my heart. The life of a bachelor can be a laugh, with plenty of flings, but after awhile it starts to feel empty. Between frustrations with my career and many lost connections, I felt numb—and though I wanted to fall in love, I knew I wasn’t ready. That’s what inspired me to cry out, “I don’t need to feel love, I just want to feel something!” It was in this realization that I took my first step toward self-care and nursing my spirit back to health. This song is the emotional starting point of my new album.
With a bit of professional help, and the support of colleagues, friends and family, I pulled myself out of the darkness.
