Picture 2 Youth-oriented networks MTV and the CW lead the way when it comes to images of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.

That’s
the findings of GLAAD’s fourth annual network responsibility index,
which looks to measure “fair, accurate and inclusive LGBT media

GLAAD assigned one of four grades —
“excellent,” “good,” “adequate” or “failing” — to the five broadcast

GLAAD, 87 hours out of 207.5 total hours of original fare (42%) included LGBT impressions.
