Exploring 126 films from major studios released in 2015, GLAAD found that only 17.5 percent included characters identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender. The inclusion percentage remained stagnant from 2014, when 20 of the 114 films surveyed included LGBT characters.
Among these characters, only one identified as transgender, and the role was used as merely a punch line. The part is indicative of a bigger trend, according to GLAAD, as most of the represented LGBT parts were just minor roles with 10 minutes of screen time or less.
