Hollywood: Hotbed Of Homophobia!

More than half of gay actors in Hollywood believe film-makers are biased against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) performers,according to a new study (pdf).

The report from the Williams Institute, a thinktank on gay issues at UCLA, also found that more than 50% of respondents had heard directors and producers make anti-gay comments about actors. A third of gay respondents said they had witnessed disrespectful treatment of LGBT performers on set, while one in eight non-LGBT performers had seen gay actors treated poorly.

While 53% of lesbian and gay actors were “out” to all or most of their fellow actors, the report found that only 36% had revealed to agents they were gay, and only 13% had told industry executives. One-fifth of gay male respondents and 13% of lesbians said they had experienced discrimination in the work environment.

“We found that LGBT performers may have substantial barriers to overcome in their search for jobs,” said the authors of the study, the UCLA academics MV Lee Badgett, and Jody L Herman. However, 72% of gay or lesbian performers who had openly disclosed their sexuality said it had not affected their careers and would encourage others to do the same...

The Guardian.

Fagburn has long suspected Hollywood to be the most gay-hating industry in the US, if not the entire world, and this proves it.

This is why we so often hear of gay actors being beaten up while filming films.

And why so few of the gays work there.

PS How do you get to be an 'LGBT thinktank'?

Guess you just put that in your press release and ver media will print your 'findings' without question.

No matter how implausible your other 'research'.
