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.

Strategic Plan 2009-2013

The National Board of Directors unanimously approved GLAAD’s 2009 – 2013 Strategic Plan in October. It will serve as the lead planning document by which all GLAAD activity will be measured and reviewed over the next five years. The plan looks to optimize growth and assure we meet the full potential of our media advocacy and anti-defamation mission as our cultural change influence expands. With this vision and guidance of the National Board of Directors, and the careful implementation with GLAAD’s senior staff, we will reach new heights as we work towards LGBT equality.

GLAAD Network Responsibility Index 2008 - 2009

The third annual GLAAD Network Responsibility Index is an evaluation of the quantity, quality and diversity of images of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people on television. It is intended to serve as a road map toward increasing fair, accurate and inclusive LGBT media representations.
