Main Section

SexualDiversity.org provides entertainment news and insights regarding those who are lending their voices to support the LGBT community and gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals who are moving the cultural needle. We publish the stories you need to help you stay up-to-date on all the LGBTQ+ entertainment happening today, yesterday and coming LGBT events.

Historically, the portrayal of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in media have been negative, reflecting the cultural intolerance of LGBT individuals; however, from the 1990s to the present day, there has been an increase in the depictions of LGBT people, issues, and concerns within mainstream media. LGBT communities have taken an increasingly proactive stand in defining their culture, with a primary goal of achieving affirmative visibility in mainstream media. The positive portrayal or increased presence of the LGBT communities in media has increased acceptance and support for LGBT communities, established LGBT communities as a norm, and provided information on the topic.

A study found that LGBTQ-inclusive entertainment promotes acceptance and helps brands. Movies, television shows, and ads can help change attitudes about and erase prejudices toward LGBTQ people, a study by GLAAD and Procter & Gamble found.
