GLAAD study finds negative portrayals of transgender people on TV

In recognition of Transgender Awareness Week and the Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov. 20), the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) reviewed its archives of transgender images on television episodes over the past 10 years.

GLAAD found that a great deal of progress still needs to be made for fair and accurate depictions of the transgender community.

Since 2002, GLAAD catalogued 102 episodes and non-recurring storylines of scripted television that contained transgender characters, and found that 54 percent of those were categorized as containing negative representations at the time of their airing. An additional 35 percent were categorized at ranging from "problematic" to "good," while only 12 percent were considered groundbreaking, fair and accurate enough to earn a GLAAD Media Award nomination.

Among the shows that aired exploitive and negative representatives trans characters are CSI, The Cleveland Show and Nip/Tuck, GLAAD stated.

The full review is at www.glaad.org/blog/glaad-examines-ten-years-transgender-tv-images-more-half-were-negative-or-defamatory.
