According to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation's annual survey, True Blood has the highest number of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender characters on television.

The HBO show scored six characters and also discovered that the number of gay characters on the tube have increased 40% from last year after a two-year decline. Gay characters represent 3.9% of all TV characters.

ABC leads the networks with 11 gay characters, followed by Fox with five and the CW with three. NBC decreased from last year to three and CBS trails again, with one.

When it comes to cable, HBO is the leader, trailed by ABC Family, Showtime, Syfy, TNT, FX, Starz and Teen Nick.

GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios said:

"The increase in lesbian, gay and bisexual characters on primetime television not only reflects the shift in American culture toward greater awareness and understanding of our community but also a new industry standard that a growing number of creators and networks are adopting. The recent critical and commercial success of shows like 'Modern Family' and 'Glee' clearly indicate that mainstream audiences embrace gay characters and want to see well-crafted stories about our lives."

And we can't get enough of them!

    I love "True Blood"! The straight sex on the show is much more explicit than the gay sex. I did love the scene where Pam was eating that chick out and there were a bunch of pies on the table. LOL

    surveys like this is what gives the perception that gays simply want gay rights……..

    YOU GAYS WHINE ALL THE TIME ABOUT JUST BEING FOLKS BUT WHEN SOME SHOW PORTRAYS GAYS IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT SEX. SO WHAT IS IT? REGULAR FOLK OR A BUNCH OF HORNY POLE SMOKEING RUMP RANGERS? WHY DON'T YOU DEMAND TO BE PORTRAYED LIKE EVERYONE ELSE? WHAT THE HELL YOU DEMAND EVERYTHING ELSE.

    Re: LetttyB – Because homos, especially gays, are nothing but sex! They masquerade around as artists, etc, but they are nothing but sexual deviants. Period. True Blood is the perfect example of that.

    Re: Ricarda Gasch
    They didn't say just gay. They said gay, lesbian, bi and transgendered. I counted 7: Pam, Lafayette, Jesus, Queen Sofie Anne, Hadley, King Russell Edgington, Talbot.

    In the books Eric is bi, not sure if they are doing that on the show yet. I think so since they hinted at him and Talbot getting it on. Of course Eric killed him first.
