    Naya was an amazing woman. The saddest part of her death is that she will not get the chance to see her son grow up, and he won't get the chance to see his mom everyday. Such a sad loss all around.

    My heart goes out to her son the most. The trauma he must have gone through suddenly not knowing where his mama was and to be completely confused and have to understand what happened over the course of weeks/months. Kids losing parents is heart-wrenching.

    I was already out of college and had been out of the closet for a good 8 years when Santana came out, but i was OBSESSED with Glee and her character. I worked with LGBTQ youth at the time at a youth center, as the educational outreach coordinator helping the teens learn to self-advocate for equality in their schools by designing programs to present to their school staff. We traveled around the state giving these presentations in hopes of helping LGBTQ youth around Pennsylvania. Watching a show like Glee and how it affected me as an adult made me realize just how much of an impact these characters had on the kids i worked with and kids around the world. Naya's death has affected me in a way no other celebrity's death ever has and I think this is why. Thank you Naya, we will always love and cherish you

    It's also sad to see that the show's biggest star didn't even join in to this conversation. I don't know whether Lea Michele was invited to take part in this or not - but her not being here hurts just as much - that people are unable to overcome bitter rivalries just for a few minutes in order to honor the passing of a mutual friend.

  • Testing123 No

    Idk a lot of the cast including Naya publicly said that they hated working with Lea and are not friends with her. I’d imagine Lea might feel it’s inappropriate/would come off as fake. Plus the other cast members who were actually close with Naya probably don’t want her there. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of news sources focused on the fact that Lea was there in spite of the past drama, overshadowing the actual tribute

    I think it’s much more than just “bitter rivalries”. Many cast members had a problem with Lea Michele and her mistreatment towards them. Not to mention the racist remarks and constant rudeness that she showed. If you read Naya’s book her and Lea were not friends. Idk all I’m saying is if I were to pass away I wouldn’t want someone who clearly wasn’t my friend pretend to talk like we were.

    Maybe she didn't had time... but I think the main reason for her not to join would be that a lot of people don't like her very much right now (bad press - wether it´s true or not). Especially when there is Naya involved with the topic. I think it is good that she didn't join the meeting because now the main focus is on the important topic (young LGBTQ+) and not on Lea. Obviously I don't know Lea but I would guess that not joining was a decision out of respect.
