QUICK TAKES

GLAAD they're on television

September 24, 2008|From the Associated Press

Broadcast television will have 16 gay and bisexual regular characters in prime-time series this fall, more than double the seven of a year ago, a new study has found.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation said it was a positive sign of networks making their shows more representative, although more work needed to be done. These characters accounted for 2.6% of all the regular characters in TV series, up from 1.1% last year and 1.3% in 2006, according to the study.

GLAAD President Neil Giuliano singled out Fox for having five such regular characters this fall, considering it had none a year earlier.
