Four nets were rated "good," led by HBO with 42% representation of LGBT characters, a 16% increase from last year. Virtually all non-sports original HBO series included LGBT content, with shows such as "True Blood" and "The No. 1 Lades Detective Agency" lauded for featuring "complex and authentic LGBT characters from diverse backgrounds."The worst network, according to this gay lobby, had only 5% LGBT depiction. Only about 2% of the population is LGBT, or as some call it, LGBTQI.
Also singled out in the report is ABC's drama "Brothers & Sisters," which features three regular gay characters, as well as the network's "Grey's Anatomy," which has a bisexual woman among the leads.
Overall, "GLAAD analysts found that ABC consistently offers the most fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the five broadcast networks," the survey said.
