Clinton will receive GLAAD's first Advocate for Change Award. "President Clinton's support of the LGBT community and recognition that DOMA, the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, is unconstitutional and should be struck down shows that the political landscape continues to change in favor of LGBT equality," GLAAD's Wilson Cruz said in a statement. "Leaders and allies like President Clinton are critical to moving our march for equality forward."
