Video: Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith Call for More Diversity on Television at the #glaadawards in New York

Last night Naya Rivera was joined by Glee co-star Cory Monteith to host the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York. Naya who is a GLAAD Media Awards hosting veteran started off the show by giving Cory a few pointers on how to work the crowd but also took the opportunity to thank her fans and call for more diversity on television.

Why Words and Images Matter: The GLAAD Media Awards at Work

While riding the subway the other day, I was seated next to a young girl, maybe 8 or 9 years old, and her father. “Twenty-eighth Street is next. And then 23rd. And then 18th,” she told me. Apparently, even she could tell I wasn’t a New Yorker.

Then, as the train came to a stop at the station (sure enough, 28th Street), her attention was drawn to a gay couple who boarded holding hands. She quieted.

“Do those men love each other?” she asked her father.

This could be interesting.
