The 2021 GLAAD Media Awards will be available to more people this year than ever. For the first time, the LGBTQ organization's annual awards ceremony will stream on Hulu. Niecy Nash is hosting the event, which honors fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues in media.

In addition to handing out awards, the show will also honor the late Naya Rivera's legacy by reuniting the cast of Glee at the show, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Rivera's character on Glee, Santana, coming out on the show. Rivera tragically died last July at the age of 33.
