The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, in its 15th annual "Where We Are on TV" report, has named the most inclusive television program currently on air, reports the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog.
HBO’s vampire drama "True Blood" is the show, as if features six regular and recurring lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender characters, according to the report.
"Thanks to its large cast (and often sexually ambiguous vampires), HBO’s ‘True Blood’ is the most inclusive program currently on television," the report says. Across 84 scripted series, LGBT characters account for 3.9% of all characters in the fall network television season, an improvement from 3% last year, the report says.
ABC, for the fifth straight year, has the highest percentage of LGBT characters, while CBS showed the most improvement. That was partly due to "The Good Wife" character Kalinda Sharma being revealed as bisexual, the article adds.
