#54Today I wrote to the Hallmark Channel to ask that they make their original TV and movies more diverse. I’m a sucker for Christmas movies and watch them every December. The problem I have with their movies is that every character is white. And straight. If there is a non-white person in the movie they are a minor character. It seems to me that Hallmark should consider that our families and our communities are not all white. Not all straight. And make their movies more inclusive. So I wrote them an email asking them to do so.
Action you can take: advocate for programming and movies that represent our diverse and interesting communities. Ask your movie theatre to show movies and your TV stations to show programs that celebrate the diversity that is real life.
