Stage and screen actor Harvey Fierstein and LBGT news outlet The Advocate will be honored during Logo’s the third annual “Trailblazer Honors,” a television special that celebrates pioneers at the helm of LGBT equality. For the first time, VH1 and Logo will simulcast the “Trailblazer Honors,” on Saturday, June 25 at 8pm ET/7pm CT. The one-hour special is an official event of NYC Pride Week and will be held at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, one of the first religious institutions in New York City to champion the causes of LGBT people. Fierstein, known for his career of over 30 years as an openly gay actor and HIV/AIDS activism, and The Advocate, which published the first known protest of LGBT harassment in 1967, two years before Stonewall, join previous years’ honorees including the Obama Administration, Edie Windsor, Judy and Dennis Shepard, as well as Laverne Cox and the cast of Orange is the New Black.
