Welcome to Where We Are On TV, GLAAD's overview of diversity on television.
The GLAAD Network Responsibility Index is an evaluation of the quantity, quality and diversity of images of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people on television. It is intended to serve as a road map toward increasing fair, accurate and inclusive LGBT media representations.
With the birth of Mary Cheney and Heather Poe's son, Samuel David Cheney, GLAAD is providing resources to news media outlets to ensure that their coverage avoids the kind of distortions and misrepresentations – particularly in the area of social science research – that marred initial coverage of the couple's pregnancy.
