Ahead of the one-year anniversary of Glee star Naya Rivera’s death, the cast of Glee has teamed up with GLAAD to pay tribute to the actor at this year’s GLAAD Media Awards. The reunion will commemorate the 10-year anniversary of Rivera’s character Santana coming out as gay and honor the character’s legacy as one of the few mainstream queer Latinx TV characters. Demi Lovato, who had a role on Glee as Santana’s girlfriend, Dani, will introduce the tribute.
