“Schitt’s Creek” – CBC(LOS ANGELES) — The 32nd Annual GLAAD Awards aired Thursday night and it was nothing short of a celebration of inclusivity.
The show, which aims to “recognize and honor media for their fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of the intersectional LGBTQ community,” was hosted by Niecy Nash and included musical performances from Chika, Jessica Betts and Rebecca Black.
There was also a remembrance and celebration of the late Naya Rivera and her Glee character Santana, who came out on the show 10 years ago. Demi Lovato, who portrayed Santana’s girlfriend on the hit series, kicked-off the special moment that allowed the Glee cast to reminisce about their former colleague. Naya tragically died in a boating accident last summer.
The GLAAD Awards also featured appearances by JoJo Siwa, Katy Perry, Laverne Cox, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Levy and more!
