Get More LGBTQ+ Characters on TV
I've had a few friends tell me that they can't find movies or TV shows with LGBTQ+ characters. When growing up closeted or out, it can be hard to figure out who you are, and sometimes having someone to relate to can help you through it/help you figure it out. Personally, it helped me when seeing a few shows with young LGBTQ+ people in them. It gave me confidence to not hide who I was anymore, to show that I wasn't ashamed of who I am but that I was proud to share it with others. Having more LGBTQ+ characters on tv seems only fair. This could help a lot of people around the world; not just kids but adults too.
This petition's whole purpose is to get more LGBTQ+ representation in the media and on TV. And with any luck, more LGBTQ+ characters that are main roles. This petition also works for the representation to get LGBTQ+ PEOPLE in the roles of gays, etc., instead of straight people.
