The depiction of Lgbt people on the small screen is rapidly increasing and slowly diversifying, according to GLAAD.
Per annual reports released by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender media advocacy group GLAAD, primetime broadcast and cable networks are increasing their use of Lgbt images. And for the first time in history, there will be an equal number of male and female Lgbt characters on TV.
Fox leads the broadcast pack in GLAAD’s Network Responsibility Index; 42% of its primetime programming hours include Lgbt characters or storylines. ABC trails behind at 33% and CBS is dead last with 14%. Meanwhile, ABC Family is the most inclusive cable net — half of its original programming included Lgbt impressions — followed by FX at 40%. History and TBS both received failing grades.
In fact, History didn’t air any Lgbt images last season.
