GLAAD HAS announced that “the cast of Glee will reunite during the virtual ceremony for the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards on Thursday, April 8 for a special tribute to the legacy of the late Naya Rivera’s character Santana Lopez. The tribute will honor the ten-year anniversary of Santana’s coming out as lesbian in the GLAAD Media Award-winning series and spotlight the character’s impact on LGBTQ teens and Latinx LGBTQ representation on television.”

Demi Lovato, who played Santana’s girlfriend on Glee, will introduce the special tribute during the awards, which will feature your favorite Glee cast members Jacob ArtistChris ColferDarren CrissVanessa LengiesJane LynchKevin McHaleHeather MorrisMatthew MorrisonAlex NewellAmber RileyHarry Shum Jr.Becca Tobin, and Jenna Ushkowitz.

“GLAAD is partnering with Google to exclusively premiere the ceremony on GLAAD’s YouTube on Thursday, April 8 at 8pm ET. The event will also stream on Hulu on April 8 starting at 10pm ET, and will be available to stream on-demand on Hulu until the end of June.”
