We are so proud of our girl Naya Rivera!

The Glee star is officially hosting the upcoming GLAAD Media Awards along with co-star Cory Monteith. The part-Puerto Rican star, which plays lesbian cheerleader Santana Lopez on the hit television series, is a proud supporter of gay rights and hosted the event that stands for The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation last year.

Rivera's character on the show became extremely popular within the gay community after her character Santana hooked up with former Cheerios cheerleader Brittany played by Heather Morris. The 25-year-old's blonde co-star also happens to be her best friend in real life and may be the latest celebrity victim to a nude photo leak. Reps have not confirmed or denied the dilemma.

Rivera will take the stage for the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on March 24th. Latinos like Mario Lopez, Ivy Queen, and Sara Ramirez have been honored in the past. We are so glad Naya Rivera is representing for Latinas this year. What do you think?
