According to the Where We Are On TV report, LGBT characters now make up 10.2% of series regular on broadcast shows in the US, which is up 1.4% from last year's previous record. This equates to 90 out of 879 roles.

For the first time, LGBT women also outnumbered men with 53% to 47% thanks to shows such as Batwoman and Pose. The season has also seen more bisexual and transgender characters as well as those who have HIV/Aids.
