GLAAD Study: True Blood is the Most LGBT-Inclusive Show

true-blood-poster-2.jpgThe Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) found that True Blood was the most inclusive show for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters. Their "Where We Are on TV" study went on to say that the overall number of LGBT characters on broadcast networks is also steadily rising. So True Blood fans: After so watching much sex and violence, you can at least pat yourself for being tolerant and politically correct. The flip side? True Blood simultaneously contributes to the over-representation of vampires, which by my calculations are featured in television and film more prominently than any other minority group.
