Today, I would like to commemorate the passing of the Glee star, Naya Rivera. She was an amazing actress/singer who played the role of an openly lesbian woman in Glee.
After 6 long dreadful days of searching, a body was found in Lake Piru. Sheriff Bill Ayub said that they’re confident the body discovered is Naya Rivera. Her body will be taken to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s office for an autopsy and positive identification.
There’s nothing that indicates any foul play took place or that she died by suicide as some theories that were spinning on the media. This was simply a heartbreaking accidental drowning death.
Remembering Her Dedication To Help Others
Naya always tried to give back however she could. She dedicated some of her time to several charity organizations, like The Trevor Project, Stand Up to Cancer, The Sunshine Foundation, and GLAAD amongst others.
In 2011, she was named the newest celebrity spokesperson for Proactiv. On March 24, 2012, she co-hosted the 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York with Glee co-star Cory Monteith. Along with John Stamos, both hosts auctioned off kisses to the crowd, raising $15,000. This tradition had started with Rivera when she hosted the 22nd Annual Media Awards in San Francisco.
