Quiz Question: Who is the first openly LGBTQIA+ musical artist to top the Billboard charts?

The given options are as follows:

  • Freddie Mercury
  • Wendy Carlos
  • Adam Lambert

The correct answer is: Adam Lambert

Fact: Laden with catchy jams, Lambert’s 2012 album ‘Trespassing’ debuted at No. 1 and sold over 75,000 copies in its first week. Lambert’s high-profile side gig pays tribute to another pioneering LGBTQIA+ musician (who wasn’t publicly out when Queen’s ‘The Game’ topped the charts four decades before ‘Trespassing’).
