LGBTQ characters on US TV are at an all-time high

According to a report by the media advocacy group GLAAD, US broadcast television has featured a record percentage of LGBTQ characters for the fourth consecutive year. Last year, GLAAD called on the broadcast networks to have 10% of its regular characters on prime-time identify as LGBTQ by 2020. Of the 879 regular characters scheduled to appear this season, 90 (10.2%) are LGBTQ.

They’re WAY over-represented. I’ve also noticed that all the judges are black women and almost every couple is interracial. I got a big kick out of it.

This is why the legacy media is dying, people are sick of the forced woke shit, in tv, games, films, news, ect. Just quit trying to force it down our throats and let us live our lifes, you do the same.

None of which do care about. Christians are not represented in fiction. I mean outside their own industry. How it's time we create Christian characters.

you figure alphabet people would be insulted by this kind of tokenization, if i were part of a demographic that felt unrepresented and tv networks thought it was their place to throw in an alphabet character 'just because' that didnt provide any value to the show i would be kind of pissed.

Equality of outcome only matters when the smaller slices of the intersectional pie are underrepresented. If they get bigger slices that is OK, well as long as it takes away from straight white males!

And the people in charge of those shows think that qualifies as good programming. This is why I prefer anime over anything these idiots churn out.

@Mr Newbs: That's real interesting how the increased presence of media correlates with increased number of LGB(T?) people in the US. I think more research is needed to determine if media influences sexuality or if more people are aware there are others out there and they don't have to fear coming out. For myself, fitting in the category that ends with 49 (my age) I didn't have much in the way of positive movies about gays. I mostly saw persecution and AIDS. Those are both things that I avoided - never been persecuted and never became HIV+. Like I said, more research needed.
