Entertainment Media

The Entertainment Media Program monitors film, television, music, and related entertainment media to ensure inclusive and accurate portrayals of the LGBT community. When anti-LGBT content runs, GLAAD speaks out about why anti-LGBT attitudes and content have no place in the media. The staff also works with TV and film studio executives, producers and scriptwriters to provide script consultations and to advocate for the inclusion of LGBT people in an effort to spark conversations about LGBT issues in living rooms and around water coolers. GLAAD releases the annual “Where We Are on TV” study which measures the number of LGBT characters on television and the “Network Responsibility Index” which ranks networks on their levels of LGBT inclusion.
