The GLAAD Studio Responsibility Index (SRI) maps the quantity, quality and diversity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) characters in films released by the seven major motion picture studios during the 2018 calendar year. GLAAD researched films released by 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Studios and Warner Bros., as well as films released by four subsidiaries of these major studios. The report is intended to serve as a road map toward increasing fair, accurate and inclusive LGBTQ representation in film.

What are you doing Sunday, May 5?
If you can get to NYC, you should be joining us at a screening of the Madonna-fan doc Like a Prayer, directed by Oxana Nabokova.
The screening is taking place at 7 p.m. at the AMC Empire 25 on W. 42nd, and everyone who attends is automatically entered to win a trip to Eurovision in Tel Aviv or a a ticket to the GLAAD Awards in NYC! (You can also enter by donating $45 to the film's GoFundMe site, which is to raise finishing funds.) The cut-off date to be entered is April 25.
What is the film about? In a press release, Nabokova, who was a journalist in Russia, says:
In short, my film is about Madonna's fans, their love and devotion for the Queen, and how she inspires her fans all over the world, how she makes them stronger. It’s also about challenges that we face every single day. My film is about real life.
There are several stories in my film, that can inspire and can be relatable to many people, whether they're Madonna fans or not.
Check out a trailer for the event after the jump ...

The nominees for the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards are here, and — as promised — the LGBTQ advocacy group has ignored Bohemian Rhapsody, the most successful drama of all time at the box office, because its director, Bryan Singer, stands accused of serial sexual abuse and because Singer called the accusations “homophobic.”
This may be the only award Blockers has been nominated for. Also, was the stereotypical gay character in Crazy Rich Asians really so special it made the film worthy of a nomination for Outstanding Film - Wide Release? Where is A Star is Born? I would've thought the queens in the first (and good) half of the movie would've warranted a nom, plus GLAAD would want to try to get Gaga to show up. Baffling!
I would assume with Bohemian Rhapsody outta the way, that clears the path for Love, Simon.
Look for Pose to take an award.
Also worth noting: INTO, which has been canned by Grindr after lasting a whole 18 months, received a post-mortem award for journalism.
