In their annual “Studio Responsibility Index” report, GLAAD takes major film studios to task for their representation (or lack thereof) of LGBT people in film. The organization recently released their 2016 report, which gives Disney a failing grade; over the 11 films the studio released in 2015, none of them included appearances by LGBT people. This year, GLAAD cited the “Star Wars” universe specifically as an area where the studio could change this.
“For the first time since beginning this report, GLAAD did not find any LGBT-inclusive content among Disney’s yearly slate of films,” the report reads. “As recent successful animated films and TV programs have shown (Oscar-nominated ParaNorman, Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe), LGBT people appearing in ‘all-ages’ programming — animated or not — is not the impossible notion it once was. LGBT people are already part of families and communities around the world, and film of all genres should reflect that.”
