    ...20 of the 114 movies (17.5%) that bowed last year had characters who identified as lesbian, gay, or bisexual. This is slightly more from 2013, when that percentage was 16.7% (17 of 102 films). However, none of these films included a character who identified as transgender.

    This increased number from the major studios didn’t necessarily equate to better representation, the report found. The majority of these characters were gay men (65%), while a third (30%) featured bisexual characters and about one tenth (10%) including lesbian characters. The characters were also almost all white (19 characters or 67.9%). Most of these parts were minor roles and most of the films were comedies (42.1%), animated/family films (23.8%) or dramas (18.2%), as opposed to the blockbuster action or sci-fi films that garner larger audiences.

    “As television and streaming services continue to produce a remarkable breadth of diverse LGBT representations, we still struggle to find depictions anywhere near as authentic or meaningful in mainstream Hollywood film. The industry continues to look increasingly out of touch by comparison, and still doesn’t represent the full diversity of the American cultural fabric,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

    So tired of the gays who are trying to force everyone else to be gay.

    Wow. A league that survives on donations thinks their members should have more visibility. Breaking news

    Imagine that someone has the time and money to sit around and count the number of homos in movies.

    That alone should be proof that they are just fine.

    Most countries they are still running from the gas chambers and hangmans noose.

    How about just lobbying for movies that aren't awful and re-boots of already re-booted series?

    They are like 3% of the population, but because Hollywood and the arts attract homos it seems like much more. Who gives a fuck what screaming minorities want?

    Such an insanely tiny portion of the population is transgender. Why would we pretend there was a higher portion? This is like someone complaining that there aren't enough movies starring people with 6 fingers on one hand.

    considering how filled hollywood is with gay actors pretending to like women, their outrage is, as always, funny stuff.

    gays are less than 3% of the population and tranny freaks are .00001 and they whine more than the other 97% combined.




    you can act like a man!

    oh wait, no you can't. :jj:

    NGO's give plausible deniability.

    It's like in Ukraine. We don't have any troops there, but we are funding NGO's to wreck havoc there. Money is being funneled to groups like GLAAD, NAACP and various women's groups to cause division here.

    I thought you said they "thrive on govt grants"? Now they are on par with Ukranian war efforts? Sure.

    Morningstar, American Airlines, AT & T etc throw some write-off donations to a now irrelevant group / vanity project with a puny budget of @ $3 million a year, but you straight people get all worked up about it. Knock yourselves out, I guess
