I wrote a story about a year ago in which I had dug into some statistics that showed that LGBTQ characters in films are grossly underrepresented, by a factor of nearly 100. Not historically, today.

In other words if you take a look at films made over the past few years, they contain roughly 100 times fewer LGBTQ characters than you would find randomly in society.

And people want to complain about diversity requirements?

Piffle. Hollywood, you can do so much better than that.
