Watch Trailblazers on Thursday, June 26th, at 9/8c on Logo TV
Almost half a century after the Stonewall Riots, and on the one-year anniversary of DOMA being overruled, Logo is proud to
announce Trailblazers , a first of its kind event to honor the pioneers who have made historic strides for LGBT equality. The one-hour special will feature the celebrities,
politicians, activists, and trendsetters who are transforming our cultural landscape - as well as musical performances from
some of today's biggest artists. Trailblazers will take place at
The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, one of the first churches to host gay marriages in New York.
Trailblazers will honor Edie Windsor and
Roberta Kaplan, Jason Collins and 'Orange Is the New
Black' for their groundbreaking work in LGBT civil rights. Also during the event, Daniel Radcliffe will introduce Young Trailblazers, which will highlight four members of The Trevor Project's Youth Advisory Council
who are making an impact in their communities. Former REM front man
Michael Stipe will also be on hand to present the International Trailblazer award to John 'Longjones' Abdallah Wambere for his work fighting for LGBT rights
The show will feature musical performances by A Great
Big World and Sia, with special appearances by Demi Lovato, Pete Wentz, Jared Leto, Kylie Minogue,
Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees, Macklemore
and Ryan Lewis and Mary Lambert.
As part of Trailblazers, Logo also will be sending one fan and his or her local hero to attend the show in NYC.
Join us June 26th at 9/8c to celebrate this year's Trailblazers, and check back here throughout the month of June for updates
