13 Most Damaging Movies To LGBT Community In 2016, According To GLAAD — Do YOU Agree With This List??

Filed under: Film FlickersLGBTSocial Issues

no title

GLAAD released their 2017 Studio Responsibility Index, in which they rate Hollywood on its representation of the LGBT community in all the films released in 2016.

Sadly, no studio did well, as the majority of wide release films featured "LGBTQ characters who lack substance and are often treated only as a punchline, a dangerous message which keeps old prejudices alive both here in the U.S. and around the world."

The list of failing movies includes some obvious offenders but also some pretty surprising ones… with which you may not completely agree!

This might be the most beautiful one yet!

It's been over three weeks now since the tragic shootings at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida and thankfully the push for change and awareness isn't going away any time soon!

Over the past couple of weeks, celebs like Elton John, Sofia Vergara, and more helped to pay tribute to the victims through videos or performances, and now Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, and a whole lot more are letting their voices be heard!

In an emotional new song titled Hands, Spears, Stefani, Derulo, and Trainor join Pink, Jennifer Lopez, Ty Herndon, Adam Lambert, Kacey Musgraves, Imagine Dragons, and Mary J. Blige in order to pay tribute to the victims of the terrible shooting.

But the great cause goes beyond a tribute and awareness as all of the proceeds for the song, which was released by Interscope Records, will benefit the Equality Florida Pulse Victims Fund, GLAAD, and the LGBT Community Center of Central Florida!

We're not glad about this news…

Even though LGBT rights have been threatened throughout the country over the past few weeks, we were content knowing that our fave celebs were doing everything in their power to protect queer individuals.

Well, it seems as though we were giving Hollywood too much credit — that is, at least according to the latest findings by GLAAD!

North Carolina Has No Future Now With Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato! They Cancelled Their Tour Stops Because Of That Anti-LGBTQ Law!

Way to go, you two!

Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato have decided to cancel their upcoming tour stops in North Carolina.

The pop powerhouses were supposed to play shows in both Raleigh and Charlotte, but have decided to pull the plug on those performances because of the state's anti-LGBTQ legislation.

About a month ago, Governor Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2, which states that local cities and towns can no longer create their own rules banning discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

HB2 also says that transgender individuals must use the bathrooms that match the "biological sex" on their birth certificates in public schools, government agencies, and public college campuses.

In light of this terrible piece of legislation, the musicians announced on Monday that their Honda Civic Tour: Future Now will not be stopping in NC, sharing their joint statement on Instagram.
