Last night at a sold-out LA Gay Lesbian Center gala that raised $1 million for homeless gay and lesbian youth, honoree Amy Pascal asked the industry to scrutinize its depiction of LGBT characters in film and television: “How about next time, when any of us are reading a script and it says words like fag, or faggot – homo – dyke – take a pencil and just cross it out”. According to Deadline Hollywood (via Big Hollywood), the head of Sony, Amy Pascal, wants to censor all gay stereotypes by introducing a “production code”. But nothing on whether they’d do the same regarding Christian/Jewish stereotypes. How sad to see that the tactics from the 1930s are coming back again. via tel chai
