LGBTQ representation on the small screen is up for the 2019-2020 season, according to GLAAD‘s latest media report, titled “Where We Are on TV.” In its annual study on the state of representation on television, the organization reports the highest percentage of LGBTQ series regular characters since it began keeping track of the statistic 15 years ago.
GLAAD reports that over the past year, the number of LGBTQ series regular characters on broadcast scripted primetime shows has jumped from 75 to 90. The data stems from a review of the 879 series regulars from 111 primetime shows across the broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, The CW, FOX, and NBC.
GLAAD also revealed that of those networks, The CW leads the pack when it comes to LGBTQ representation onscreen. Out of The CW’s series regular characters, 15.4% are LGBTQ. NBC follows with 12.5%, then ABC at 10.4%, Fox at 7.9%, and CBS at 5.5%.
