LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network will honor six students through celebrity-directed stories at its 30th annual reimagined ceremony.

GLSEN announced Thursday that the ceremony will highlight the students at the Respect Everywhere celebration, which will premiere Monday on the organization’s website. The students’ stories will be told in a series of short videos by directors including Octavia Spencer, Rob Hardy, Kalen Allen, Matt Bomer, Joe Mantello and Antoni Porowski.

The awards show was previously named the Los Angeles Respect Awards.

The online event will showcase the students from around the country that have made an impact on the LGBTQ+ community in their own way.

Stories will include a transgender football player’s navigation of the game, activism and his identity. Others will follow an immigrant student acclimating to their new country, while a young lesbian finds a balance between her Christianity and her authentic self.
