Newly minted “View” co-host Raven Symone and civil rights advocate Martin Luther King III will be among the speakers at Logo’s second annual Trailblazer Honors ceremony.

The ceremony will also honor Judy and Dennis Shepard, who are the parents of slain gay teen Matthew Shepard, as well as Iranian LGBT activist Arsham Parsi and two moms who are members of the LGBT-focused parent-child outreach group PFLAG.

Other celebrity speakers include Adam Lambert, Laura Jane Grace, Samira Wiley, Tituss Burgess, Tyler Posey, the indie band Bleachers, Kelly Osbourne, and Ellen DeGeneres’ mother, Betty.

The ceremony will air at 8 p.m. June 27 on Logo.
