Demi Lovato and the cast of Glee are both set to return to the GLAAD Awards for the upcoming April 8th ceremony.
Glee stars will reunite to honor the late Naya Rivera and her character Santana Lopez with a special tribute, with an introduction from Demi, who played Naya‘s love interest in season five.
According to GLAAD, 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.
Glee cast members set to appear include Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Alex Newell, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, and Jenna Ushkowitz.
“I’m honored to be joining my GLEE co-stars at the #GLAADawards to pay tribute to LGBTQ teens and honor the legacy and impact of Naya Rivera and her character Santana Lopez. April 8 on @hulu and @YouTube @GLAAD,” Darren shared on Twitter.
Also set to separately appear at the 2021 GLAAD Awards is Matt Bomer, who was a guest star on Glee.
Back in 2016, Demi received the GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, while Glee has picked up two GLAAD Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2010 and 2011.
The 2021 GLAAD Awards will take place on April 8th, premiering exclusively on GLAAD’s YouTube page starting at 8pm ET/PT. It will also start streaming on Hulu starting at 10pm ET/PT that night, and be available to stream on-demand on Hulu until the end of June.
