Today, the 31st Annual GLAAD media awards will take place to honor the media that is inclusive to the LGBTQIA+ community! This morning, we found out that High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+ is bringing home its very own GLAAD Award!
High School Musical: The Musical: The Series won the award for Outstanding Kid & Family Programming. Here are the others shows that the Disney+ original series was up against for their GLAAD award:
- Steven Universe – Cartoon Network
- Adventure Time – Cartoon Network
- Anne with an E – Netflix
- She-Ra and the Princess of Power – Netflix
- Andi Mack – The Disney Channel
We are so thrilled to see this series bring home this wonderful honor! High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is a scripted comedy that follows the students at the real East High as they put on their own production of High School Musical. This show presents the teens as real high school students and we follow their love and heartbreak. Through the series, we follow Carlos, the choreographer, as he falls for Seb, who wants to break traditions and play Sharpay Evans. Their storyline was one of my favorite parts of the show to watch and I loved to see the representation of LGBTQ+ relationships on the Disney+ streaming service!
Proud is an understatement of all the feels we have right now. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series just won the #GLAADawards for Outstanding Kids & Family Programming. Congrats to the entire cast and crew! #HSMTMTS pic.twitter.com/GraZl0PZo7
