To any former Gleeks: the cast of the beloved musical series Glee is getting back together for a special, one-night-only tribute.
Cast members Darren Criss, Vanessa Lengies, Becca Tobin, Alex Newell, Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., and Jenna Ushkowitz will all take part in the event, which will take place during the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards on April 8.
The reunion will mark the 10th anniversary of the coming out of the character Santana Lopez, played in the series by Naya Rivera. The cast will also pay a special tribute to Rivera, who died last year in a boating accident.

Out queer singer Demi Lovato will introduce the tribute alongside actress Heather Morris, who played Rivera’s love interest on the show. Details on the actual tribute remain sparce, though knowing the cast of Glee, a song is almost compulsory.
During Glee’s initial run, the character of Satana Lopez became one of the most popular kids on the show, and won wide praise as an icon of queer Latin representation. The cast will commemorate the groundbreaking character in their appearance, as well as bit a mournful farewell to Rivera.
Since 1990, the GLAAD Media Awards have recognized outstanding representation and innovation in the portrayal of LGBTQ characters on television and in film. Fans of Glee who wish to watch the tribute can stream the ceremony live on YouTube April 8 at 10pm EST.
The cast looks amazing! What a lovely tribute to Naya Rivera. But I fully expect Demi Lovato to blow this off with another drug experience. No, I won’t forget that Atlantic City no-show.

“Satana Lopez” hilarious typo!
not really considering she died last year
No Lea Michele ?
I wish Chord Overstreet were included.
Wise that Chord will NOT be there.
He’s a prominent tRump supporter.
He was cute on the show, but if that’s true I withdraw my wish. Live and learn.
Is he? I couldn’t find anything showing that, and I’d be surprised since he was in a very pro-gay movie called 4th Man Out.
Do you have a link?
Lea will NOT be there. She was either purposely not invited or decided not to appear.

Naya’s death was sad indeed but its also sad the casting agent decided to go with actors who look well beyond their teens. Not once was I convinced ANY of them were teenagers.
And I’m not convinced you’re a Sister.
Sad that Lea Michele won’t be there, but oh well. Also sad to hear Chord Overstreet is a Trump supporter.
