Fall TV Season Sees Record LGBT Presence

The new fall TV season will see an increase in the number of gay and bisexual characters, CBN News reports. According to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), it will be the highest level ever. A new GLAAD report titled "Where We Are on TV" shows that 4.4 percent of actors on prime-time shows portray lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender characters -- up from 2.9 percent in 2011. ABC has the highest amount, with 10 out of 194 being LGBT, and the report also saluted CBS as "much improved," at 2.8 percent.
