DanRad to Host Logo's new event honoring LGBT Heroes/History

Logo is honoring groundbreaking advocates who have helped the LGBT community make incredible strides this year with the first-ever Trailblazers special, airing on the network June 26.

The inaugural event will honor Edie Windsor and Roberta Kaplan, the plaintiff and attorney in the historic Supreme Court case that helped topple the Defense of Marriage Act.

Daniel Radcliffe, a longtime supporter of the LGBT community, will present at this year’s event: In addition to being a longtime volunteer with The Trevor Project, Radcliffe has been a vocal supporter of marriage equality both here and in the UK. ”Gay people should have equality in law everywhere,” Radcliffe told Attitude magazine in 2012. “If you grow up as a young gay man knowing you don’t have the same opportunities as everyone else, you’re going to feel victimized.”

The show will also feature a performance by A Great Big World and special appearances by Jared Leto, Kylie Minogue, Ariana Grande, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, and out performers Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees and Mary Lambert, who sang on Macklemore’s equality anthem, “Same Love.”

More honorees, presenters and attendees will be named in the weeks to come.


Happy Edie and Kaplan's finally getting celebrated and Happy for Danrad, but seriously logo what's with all the str8 ppl?
