Netflix: Change 'Gay and Lesbian' Category to 'LGBTQA+'
This petition had 19 supporters
Netflix currently have an entire category dedicated to 'Gay and Lesbian' cinema. These films and shows have a wide range of LGBTQA+ characters/directors and it's fantastic that the community is being represented and celebrated.
However, 'Gay and Lesbian' is not good enough. It is intensely trans exclusive and reduces gender to only two options. It also ignores that sexuality and sex and gender are all separate, however interlinking, issues. The small, and not time consuming, change to LGBTQA+ includes a much wider range of people.
This is an issue that shouldn't need pushing, but for some sad reason does. After speaking with Joss at customer support, i was assured she would pass on my issue. However, for those wishing to add some extra oomph, i suggest tweeting @Netflix and @Netflixuk using the hashtag #Netflixcatchup and #Pride2017 to complain. CEO @reedhastings might like to hear from you, and Netflix takes idea submissions here. > http://makeit.netflix.com/projects You can also go to the help center from your netflix homepage, where a live chat is available.
