Where We Are on TV Report: 2006 - 2007 Season

This is a debugging block

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

At the launch of the 2006-07 television season, GLAAD estimates that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) scripted characters represent only 1.3% of all series regular characters on the six broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, The CW and MyNetworkTV. 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.

College Media Reference Guide

The GLAAD College Media Reference Guide is a resource for college journalists covering stories about the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.  The Guide, a 24” x 36” poster, provides college journalists with a resource to tell the stories of their gay and transgender classmates in the most fair, accurate and inclusive way.  The Guide is particularly helpful because it includes terminology used more often in young adult communities and because it distills the content of GLAAD’s 7th Edition of the Media Reference Guide into an easy to reference resource ideal for campus newsrooms

Chinese Media Reference Guide

The GLAAD Chinese Media Reference Guide provides journalists writing for primarily Chinese audiences with the tools necessary to report on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

GLAAD Media Essentials

Our world is dominated by the news media. Politicians flood the airwaves with sound bites, talking heads on cable news shows shape public opinion even when they distort the facts and bloggers shine a spotlight on stories that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. In this media-rich environment, advocacy has changed. Organizations and advocates working toward lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality need to be smart and strategic about working with the media in order to move public opinion.
