Glee co-stars Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith have signed on to host the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in New York City on March 24, the group announced on Tuesday.
On Glee, Rivera, 25, plays cheerleader Santana Lopez. Santana has started to open up about being a lesbian in the show’s current season.
Twenty-nine-year-old Canadian-born Monteith plays student Finn Hudson on the show, often described as the “gayest show on TV.”
Rivera hosted last year’s GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco.
“I am here to tell you that playing gay is good in every way,” she told attendees. “And that hopefully the huge increases in gay and lesbian characters will lead to more diverse and transgender-inclusive storylines.”
Also scheduled to attend are Ted Allen, Ellen Barkin, Kim Cattrall, Laverne Cox, Dakota Fanning, Vinny Guadagnino, Megan Hilty, Isis King, Carson Kressley, Padma Lakshmi, Jay Manuel, Martha Plimpton, Thomas Roberts and Kim Wayans, among others.
