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.
