Studio Responsibility Index
Oh no...it's that time of the year again...
GLAAD have released their "Studio Responsibility Index" - quite possibly the most worthless report ever to be committed to paper.
In essence, it's a list...of the worst that Hollywood has dished out over the last year...all these films have some sort of LGBT representation...which means...we have to watch them.
17.5% contained LGBT characters...that's 7.5% more than in real life...so, what are you moaning about?!?

Well...thank God that's over...exhausting, draining and mummifying.
We watched them all and can confirm that GLAAD do a mighty fine job at picking the worst and most trivial films to come out of Hollywood...that feature LGBT characters.
We love Vito Russo...but, the 'Vito Russo Test' is a joke! No-one lives in an ideal world...so, to demand that all LGBT characters have to be portrayed in a positive light is ludicrous. How many nasty old queens do you know?
Rather than wasting money compiling such a worthless list...focus on the great LGBT films that have been made...promote them instead!
This 'Studio Responsibility Index'...waste of money, waste of time, a total irrelevance.
Needless to say...we are not looking forward to next year's list!
