TV has hit a record high for black and transgender representation, GLAAD report finds

Indeed, GLAAD highlighted the issue with networks still relying on the decades-old “Bury Your Gays” trope which has seen gay or bisexual female characters killed off at a higher rate in service of furthering the storylines of straight leading characters. The report particularly picked up on the widely criticised deaths featured on The 100 and The Walking Dead; further stating that more than 25 lesbian and bisexual characters were killed off this year on scripted TV.
