Where We Are on TV Report: 2010 - 2011 Season

Welcome to Where We Are On TV, GLAAD's annual report about diversity on television.

At the launch of the 2010-2011 television season, GLAAD estimates that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) scripted characters represent 3.9% of all scripted series regular characters on the five broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, and NBC. This is slightly more than last year, with 23 series regular characters identified as LGBT.

After a two year decline, the number of LGBT series regulars on cable has made a healthy rebound.  A total of 35 series regulars were counted this year; up from 32 in 2008, and 25 last year.

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.

A Note from GLAAD President Jarrett T. Barrios

On a recent flight from New York to GLAAD’s office in Los Angeles, I had a poignant experience with the woman sitting next to me. After the initial pleasantries we began the standard small talk about family, why we were traveling to LA and what we did for work. I reflected a bit, and thought about how best to describe what it is we “do” at GLAAD.
