Following Candace Cameron Bure’s revelation that Great American Family Network would not include LGBTQ+ representation in its programming, GLAAD has released a statement

Candace Cameron Bure said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that movies with LGBTQ+ characters would not be shown on the Great American Family TV network. The former Hallmark star said that Great American Family, which is led by former Crown Media CEO Bill Abbott, would focus on “traditional marriage.”

The news has sparked anger, hurt, and frustration from fellow celebrities, but many were not all that surprised due to the actor’s known conservative Christian views. In a statement, GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) invited the actor to a discussion.

“It’s irresponsible and hurtful for Candace Cameron Bure to use tradition as a guise for exclusion,” GLAAD’s President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said. “I’d love to have a conversation with Bure about my wife, our kids, and our family’s traditions. Bure is out of sync with a growing majority of people of faith, including LGBTQ people of faith, who know that LGBTQ couples and families are deserving of love and visibility.”

“If GAF’s plan is to intentionally exclude stories about LGBTQ couples, then actors, advertisers, cable and streaming platforms, and production companies should take note and seriously consider whether they want to be associated with a network that holds exclusion as one of its values,” Ellis concluded.
