LGBTQ Representation Climbed in 2018 Studio Films, But Trans Characters ‘Completely Absent’



The number of LGBTQ characters increased in 2018, rebounding from an industry low-point the year before.
But transgender representation and racial diversity remain underwhelming.

•Of the 110 releases from the seven major studios last year, 18.2% included characters that were lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer.

•Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Pictures received a “good” rating from GLAAD.
Lionsgate and Disney received “failing” ratings.
Sony, Paramount and Warner Brothers received an “insufficient” score.

•Of Disney’s 10 releases last year, GLAAD said none of them counted as an “LGBTQ inclusive film.”
Trans representation remained “completely absent” from major Hollywood releases.
A “significant drop” in racial diversity among LGBTQ characters.

•Examples Hollywood should follow moving forward,
“The Girl in the Spider’s Web” and “Blockers”
“Crazy Rich Asians,” “Deadpool 2,” and Annihilation”

•LGBTQ audiences are 22 percent more likely to see a theatrical release more than once.
The studios should recognize the power of LGBTQ moviegoers.
