I am so thrilled to be hosting this year’s GLAAD Media Awards, honoring the LGBTQ stories and images that change the world by growing acceptance and understanding.
Nash – recently the subject of plastic surgery – added she and her wife Jessica are both living in the newly-wed paradise, and she looks forward to taking that energy and love to GLAAD’s biggest night. “Be ready for a surprise or two!”

Like last year, the event will take place virtually as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
GLAAD is also collaborating with the popular video-sharing platform TikTok on the “TikTok Queer Advocate of the Year” award, honoring a content creator who has lifted LGBTQ awareness.
Led by President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD was founded in 1990 to recognize mainstream and alternative media that depict realistic portrayals of LGBTQ characters.
The interactive awards show will be shown on GLAAD’s YouTube channel on 8th April at 8 p.m. ET. The show will also stream on Hulu at 10 p.m. ET, where it will stay on demand till the end of June.
