Where We Are on TV Report: 2005 - 2006 Season

Welcome to Where We Are On TV, GLAAD's overview of diversity on television.

At the launch of the 2005-06 television season, GLAAD estimates that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) characters represent less than 2% of all characters on the broadcast networks. Unscripted reality television and cable programming, however, include numerous diverse representations that better reflect the LGBT community. GLAAD will continue to work with the broadcast and cable networks to encourage more LGBT representations on television, and to make those representations fair, accurate and more diverse.

Guía para los Medios: Terminología Gay, Lesbiana, Bisexual y Transgénero

La cobertura justa, objetiva y veraz de los medios de comunicación ha jugado una parte importante en la formación de la opinión pública sobre la comunidad gay y transgénero. Las mejores representaciones han sido multi-dimensionales, reflejando nuestra diversidad y captando una visibilidad creciente de nuestras familias y parejas.

Estamos viviendo en una era donde el discurso sobre la vida de las personas gays o transgéneros cruza con la cobertura sobre la familia, la fe, la guerra, la política, los deportes, el entretenimiento y varios otros temas.
