The Glee cast reunites for the 2021 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards on April 8th to pay a special tribute to Naya Rivera, who passed away from drowning in July 2020.

The reunited cast’s tribute will honor Rivera’s character, Santana Lopez, 10-year-anniversary coming out as a lesbian on the TV show and highlight the character’s impact on representation in the media.

Glee is the GLAAD Media Awards’ winning series, and the reunion will focally point the impact of Santana’s story on Teen and Latinx LGBTQ representation on television.

Demi Lovato, who played Santana’s girlfriend on the show, will introduce the tribute featuring the former Glee cast members Jacob Artist, Chris Colter, Darren Criss, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Alex Newell, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, and Jenna Ushkowitz.
