Inequallity in delivering the service for LGBT community by public television!

We strongly believe that public television in all countries in Europen Union is not delivering a value for money service about and for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Community. How much space does the public TV offer to LGBT events like Pride, International Day Against Homophobia (17th of May), LGBT History Month (February) How many happy and positive role models there are in Public Television programmes Researches show that 4-10% of every community are Lesbian, Gay or Bisexual so big part of society is underrepresented in media for which they are in many cases obligated to pay for. Very often however LGBT people are used \"on air\" as a puppets to make people laugh and to show watchers that television is inclusive. This illusion creates nothing more, but positive stereotypes and what we would like to see is more diversity within presented picture of LGBT people and more space for important for this community events as well as positive role models of people who are LGBT and their relatives.
