2017 GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index

2017 GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index

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

In 2015, GLAAD debuted a video titled "Hollywood Must Do Better" that highlighted a bevy of anti-LGBTQ moments in Hollywood films over just the last five years.
