LGBT Fans Deserve Better is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit all-volunteer organization of fans from all over the world who have come together with the mission to educate people on how harmful negative LGBTQ+ representation in the media can be to our community, as well as advocate for better, more positive representation. We aim to be a resource that enables the public to learn more about the issues facing the LGBTQ+ community in regards to media representation so they can become more critical viewers and creators, resulting in more creative, impactful, and positive stories in the future.

We believe the transformative power of stories will not only change hearts and minds, but inspire greater understanding and efforts to better the lives of LGBTQ+ people in tangible ways.

We can do this by focusing on our strengths in three areas:

Education and Awareness

Making the case for why positive representation matters for the real lives of LGBTQ+ fans through concrete research and real life stories. Spreading the “Support Positive LGBT Representation” message to the entertainment industry and media.


Pushing the industry to increase quantity & quality of LGBTQ+ characters in entertainment media, and holding them accountable for the messages they send.

Community Support & Fundraising

Providing support to the LGBTQ+ community by harnessing the grassroots spirit and global networking power of our fan community to focus on raising money and awareness for the LGBTQ+ focused issues that are important to them.
