2016 GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index
The GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index (SRI) maps the quantity, quality and diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in films released by seven major motion picture studios during the 2015 calendar year. GLAAD researched films released by 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate Entertainment, Paramount Pictures, Sony Columbia, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Studios and Warner Brothers, as well as films released by four major subsidiary studios. The report is intended to serve as a road map toward increasing fair, accurate and inclusive LGBT film representations.

In 2015, GLAAD debuted a video titled "Hollywood Must Do Better" that highlighted a bevy of anti-LGBT moments in Hollywood films over just the last five years. Use the hashtag #HollywoodMustDoBetter to let Hollywood know that you want to see diverse representations of LGBT characters in film.
