ABC Family Scores Top Rating for Showing Emily’s Sexuality

Three cheers for ABC Family! Pretty Little Liars’ parent network is top dog in GLAAD’s (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) fifth annual Network Responsibility Index! GLAAD assessed the quality and quantity of gay characters on broadcast networks and 10 cable channels from June 2010 to the end of May 2011, and ABC Fam was highest ranked for its depiction of LGBT people, thanks to shows like Pretty Little Liars and Greek, both of which feature lead gay characters — like our girl Emily (Shay Mitchell)!

"We’re incredibly proud to be acknowledged by GLAAD," ABC Family president Michael Riley says, "We want to be sure we program in a relatable, authentic way."

Congratulations, ABC Fam! Your shows inspire teens everywhere to be proud and open about their sexuality!
