    The last few comments are insane, a "religious country"? Really? You honestly don't know what religion truley is. If you can't take seeing gay people I suggest you find your own country because its over for the closed minded, uneducated religious fanatics!!

    There's already too much gay characters in movies and TV. I had to cancel my "premium" cable TV (hbo,sho,cinemax) subscription because, believe it or not, "premium" does not mean that I want to watch pro-gay agenda (in every single show). The only channel that doesn't have gay agenda (and still has babes in bikinis) is SyFy (aka SciFi) channel.

    I am always concerned when white liberals compare race to sexual orientation. Amy Pascal of course ignores gay people of colour in her comments. For one thing, being "gay" in America is still linked to people thinking that a person is "white" in colour. Amy Pascal needs to do more about bringing more representaiton to GAY PEOPLE OF COLOUR in Hollywood that's the real problem. There is an over satuation of white gay characters on television and film. Let's say if a kid is black and gay and is called a gay slur. Won't that gay black kid also potentially feel alone? Who is that gay black kid going to talk to? Is it going to be the mainstream LGBT community which also has problems with racism against black gays?

    I hope what you write about never happens. If gays want to be accepted, find a new country. We are a religious country and that means we don't support sinners. Also, no movie company will sacrifice promoting what they imagine as "equality" while sacrificing profits. That's Hollywood. Always more interested in the profits. Because I promise you, the movie industry will never make more money trying to make movies supporting gay rights. It will go down. That's why it won't happen.

    This is a free country so technically one could say it's whatever we the people decide to make of it. Many people in the U.S. are religious, but that doesn't make religious people any more or less entitled than gay people to the freedoms in this country.

    Not if you're Black and Gay. And the movies you list have no minorities. "So I've been wondering how helpful we've been." Not very.
