Does this mean that a large portion of the Queer Eye for the Straight Guy cast will be replaced by heterosexuals?

"GLAAD is calling on the industry to ensure that 20 percent of series regular characters on primetime scripted broadcast series are LGBTQ by 2025. Further, we would challenge all platforms to make sure that within the next two years, half of LGBTQ characters on every platform are people of color. While broadcast has actually hit this mark two years in a row, cable and streaming have yet to reach this goal. These two steps are key moves towards ensuring that entertainment reflects the world in which it is created and the audience who consumes it."

I don't agree with it. I think those are demands worthy of being ignored. I'm disappointed they made them.

Bill Maher is gonna have a field day with this.

Are scripts and shows with LGBTQ characters being kept from the airwaves? If that's the case, then they got a case. But I bet they aren't. Maybe GLAAD's beef is with writers and not the networks or "platforms" that choose to air their work?

Also, there are plenty shows in which the characters', especially minor characters, sexuality is unknown, unclear or irrelevant.

I am suspicious of Matt Dillon, Joe Friday and Perry Mason and other TV bachelors. I suspect one or more of them are heterosexual.

Irrelevant nonsense to trigger the snowflakes like Whatsy. Nobody even watches broadcast television any more.
