After coming out as queer in 2021 and leaving the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last year, David Archuleta’s relationships with his ex-fellow Mormons have changed.

At Project Angel Food’s star dedication ceremony for the late George Michael in Los Angeles on Monday, the singer and American Idol alum opened up to PEOPLE about embracing his true self despite what his former community taught him to believe.

“I feel like I’m in this stage where I’m learning to not have to apologize anymore for who I am,” Archuleta, 32, tells PEOPLE. “[I’m] now trying to find myself as an adult queer person and say, ‘You know what? It’s OK to be me, even if that means I’m someone else from who I was maybe 10 years ago, five years ago.'”
