The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) is honoring former President Bill Clinton with the first ever Advocate for Change Award for his support and promotion of gay marriage. In ’96 the former president signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which has a section that states a marriage between same-sex couples should not be recognized, but last month Clinton asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the law because it is unconstitutional. The alliance, which promotes understanding of the LGBT community, will be giving Clinton the honorary award on April 20 at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles. [Reuters]
