Trailblazer Honors recognizes celebrities, politicians, activists and trendsetters who are transforming the cultural landscape for the LGBT community. The one-hour special will be held at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, one of the first religious institutions in New York to champion the causes of LGBT people, including the fight for marriage equality.

Lambert will perform his new single, “Ghost Town,” from his upcoming album The Original High, set for release on June 16.
