Former President Bill Clinton on Thursday honored Edith Windsor and Roberta Kaplan during a Logo TV special celebrating LGBT rights pioneers.

Thursday's Trailblazers coincided with the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision striking down a key provision of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

Clinton, who signed DOMA into law, honored Windsor, who challenged the law, and Kaplan, the lawyer who represented her.

“Seventeen years after signing DOMA into law, I was honored and grateful to be among the voices urging that it be overturned,” Clinton said in a videotaped message. “The decision would not have happened without Edie Windsor's dogged determination to right a wrong and Roberta Kaplan's equal commitment to simple fairness. As marriage equality spreads across the states, the number of people impacted by these two amazing women will only continue to grow.” (The video is embedded on this page.

The show also honored Brooklyn Nets player Jason Collins and the cast of the Netflix hit series Orange is the New Black.
