Gay Group Gives Abc High Praise
The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation has given ABC top marks for its portrayal of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters, citing especially the shows Ugly Betty and Brothers & Sisters. It's "GLAAD Network Responsibility Index" showed 15 percent of NBC programming including LGBT "impressions." Lowest on the list was Fox which showed only 6 percent. Only slightly higher was NBC with 7 percent, although GLAAD called the NBC-owned Bravo cable network, "perhaps the most LGBT-inclusive of the general entertainment cable networks," citing such shows as Queer Eye and Project Runway.
