Outfest made the official announcement via their Instagram Stories. It comes following Thoms’ Karen and Aisha Hinds’ Hen beautiful vow renewal ceremony on the season 5 finale of 9-1-1 and after Silva’s Carlos and Rubinstein’s T.K. finally got engaged in the season 3 finale of 9-1-1: Lone Star.

The panel will take place in person at NeueHouse Hollywood on Saturday, June 4 at 3 p.m. PST. Fans can order tickets here and can also make a donation to Outfest, if they so decide to. Check out the description of the panel below!

“Come join us at the OutFronts Firehouse as your favorite queer firefighters on TV (and there are a lot of queer firefighters on TV these days!) sit down with their real-life counterparts to discuss being queer and saving lives.”

Run by film festival and non-profit organization Outfest, The Outfronts is a multi-day event that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community on television. The event takes place on June 3-6, with a mix of in-person and virtual panels and will feature Q&As with cast and crew from LGBTQ+ shows and advance screenings. It will also be the world premiere of Peacock’s Queer as Folk reboot.
