Where We Are On TV is GLAAD's annual report about diversity on television

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

overview | character list

At the launch of the 2011-2012 television season, GLAAD estimates that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) scripted characters represent 2.9% of all scripted series regular characters on the five broadcast networks: ABC, CBS, The CW, Fox, and NBC. This is a decrease from last year, with 19 series regular characters identified as LGBT.

The number of scripted LGBT series regulars found on mainstream cable networks has also fallen slightly to 28 in the upcoming season.  GLAAD counted 26 additional recurring characters on cable.

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.

GLAAD Media Reference Guide - 8th Edition

Over the past two decades, Americans have experienced a significant evolution in their understanding and cultural acceptance of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender lives.

Consequently, media coverage of gay and lesbian issues (and increasingly, bisexual and transgender issues) has moved beyond simplistic political dichotomies and toward more fully realized representations not only of the diversity of our community, but also of our lives, our families, and our fundamental inclusion in the fabric of American society.
