LGBT Fans Deserve Better Home Featured Pledge Fundraiser Community News Contact LGBT Fans Deserve Better LGBT+ fans everywhere deserve better than the state of LGBT+ representation in the media today. We encourage anyone who supports the better representation and handling of LGBT characters and stories in the media to join us in our movement. We want content creators everywhere to understand that LGBT + characters are not expendable, they are not only tertiary characters, and LGBT+ relationships are not stepping stones for “real” heterosexual relationships. Storytellers can do better, and we want creators and viewers alike to commit to demanding better. Editing/Graphics/Sound: @tazpants | Concept/Research: @asset_6741 Featuring original art from: @TatyLovegood Heda, may we meet again. Your fight is over, ours is just beginning. Members and allies of the LGBT community are demanding that TV and media stop introducing queer characters only to consistently kill them in senseless and shocking ways. Lesbians are not unfamiliar with dying鈥攁nd dying violently鈥攊n the media. An alarming 31% of lesbian or bisexual characters on American scripted TV shows between 1976-2016 ended up dead. A further 38% were simply guest characters or written off with no resolution, whilst only 10% got a “happy ending”. With the list of dead lesbian/bisexual characters now at 155 (and counting), LGBT fans demand better from media creators. These deaths almost always serve to further the plot or to provide character development for more central characters left to process the shock of the loss. The tipping point was the unnecessary death of Lexa (Alycia Debnam-Carey) on The 100, a series on the CW Network which caters to genre shows and teen audiences. Since the airing of episode 3脳07 on March 3rd, 2016, forums and social media outlets have been flooded with outcry over the mishandling of a beloved fictional character who served as a beacon in the lives of many young LGBT and non-LGBT persons. Fans of the show 鈥?and even members of the LGBT community not previously involved with it, are upset not just due to the nature of the death itself which played into the harmful 鈥?a href="http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BuryYourGays" target="_blank">Bury Your Gays鈥?or 鈥淒ead Lesbian鈥?media trope, but also due to a false sense of security derived from the repeated baiting by the writers on popular social media sites. Read More Featured A trope by any other name… Bury Your Gays A trope by any other name… Aug 08, 2016 Bury Your Gays A trope is by definition, a pattern in storytelling. Lesbian and bisexual women are killed off at alarming rates, usually soon after finding happiness. TV shows don鈥檛 exist in a vacuum and each of these shows add to the trope and contribute to the overall TV landscape in the same way. The Lexa Pledge: Misunderstandings and a fan perspective LGBT Fans, The Lexa Pledge The Lexa Pledge: Misunderstandings and a fan perspective Jul 21, 2016 LGBT Fans, The Lexa Pledge In the last couple of months the 鈥楤ury Your Gays鈥?trope has garnered a lot of attention, both within the entertainment industry and from a broader media perspective. More recently The Lexa Pledge has been joined in the conversation not only in the media but also in discussions within writers rooms and writer interviews. There seems to be a big misunderstanding regarding The Lexa Pledge and what it specifically asks for. I feel that it is important to clear up.

The CW Breakdown 2015-2016 Stats The CW Breakdown 2015-2016 Jun 20, 2016 Stats While not the deadliest network, the lesbian/bi characters killed on The CW this season had arguably the most impact on the fan community.
