Report: Hollywood is less gay-friendly off-screen
Most actors surveyed think directors and producers are biased against them, study finds.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A new study suggests the proliferation of gay and transgender characters in films and television shows has not prevented gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender actors from experiencing discrimination in Hollywood.
The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists commissioned the survey released Friday showing that more than half of the actors who identify as gay, bisexual and transgender say they think directors and producers are biased against them.

More than one-third of the actors who don't fall into any of those categories agreed with that perception.
The online survey of 5,700 SAG/AFTRA members also found that more than half of the gay, transgender and bisexual respondents had heard producers and directors make anti-gay comments.
The study was conducted by the Williams Institute, a think tank based at UCLA.

"Gay" members of AFTRA and SAG will have plenty of work as soon as the homosexual lobby convinces the right folks that science films showing how daddies do it to daddies and mommies do it to mommies to be shown in public schools, is not only OK but great fun.
First they wanted equal treatment, then they wanted special protection, now they want special privileges. What next? Guaranteed employment anywhere they go? Get a normal life and you'll be accepted much easier. If you can't be normal, at least act that way, after all, these weirdo's are supposed to be actors, aren't they???
I agree with many of the posters on here. I too am sick of seeing some queer in EVERY movie, sitcom and series and will start voicing my displeasure with the practice by turning the channel to the history channel or someplace that doesn't have this social agenda affecting their programming. Lucky for me I am a Nielson household.
But "programming" is what it is all about anyway, isn't it???? Program acceptance, especially in our youth, to further an agenda of the Socialist Elitists because of their Gay Guilt. Personally, I think most of those pushing the agenda that are supposedly straight, are probably closet queers, so their opinion matters not to me.
