Seventy-five out of a total of 857 characters in the new season are LGBTQ, which marks a more than 2 per cent rise from the previous year when queer characters reached only 6.4 per cent representation.

GLAAD told the Associated Press that while the increase in representation is a good thing, they still want to see more.

Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, said, stories about underrepresented characters are “critical to accelerating acceptance for LGBTQ people.”
