It’s time to stop burying our gays

So here's the thing - characters die all the time. That's normal. However, even in 2016 an overwhelming majority of characters within film and television are straight, while much of the LGBTQ representation that is available is mostly white gay men. While as a society we have (for the most part) moved on from explicitly killing a queer character for being queer, the few queer characters that do appear are killed off at a much more alarming rate than their straight counterparts, suggesting that Western society isn't as on board with homosexuality - or anything that isn't heterosexuality - as it likes to think.
