VIDEO: Rewriting the Script -- A decade of GLAAD's Network Responsibility Index

On Thursday, GLAAD released its 9th and final edition of the Network Responsibility Index (NRI). The report maps the quantity, quality, and diversity of LGBT representation on television.

GLAAD created a video to compliment the report. In this video, you’ll be able to reminisce and look back on your favorite LGBT characters to see some shows we’ve highlighted in our Network Responsibility Index over the past 9 years.

The NRI looks back on the previous year in programming and rates networks on LGBT-inclusive content that aired between June 2014 and May 2015. The grades of "Excellent," "Good," "Adequate," or "Failing" are awarded based on the quality and relative quantity of LGBT representations in each network's original programming.

The NRI examined original primetime programming on the five broadcast networks and 10 cable networks from June 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015. 

This is the final edition of the NRI, but GLAAD will continue to advocate for greater diversity on television through our annual Where We Are on TV and Transgender Images on TV reports, both of which will be released later this year.
