Hollywood is still a “straight, white, boys” club a major study has found, reporting that movie making is suffering an “inclusion crisis” in comparison to signs of improvement from TV production.

 

Women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender people, and those from ethnic backgrounds are suffering the most in Hollywood, the damning report on diversity released days before the 2016 Oscars says, adding further salt into Hollywood’s wounds as it struggles to move on from the controversy surrounding the Oscars this year.

 

Stacy L Smith, author of the report commented to the Hollywood Reporter; We don’t have a diversity problem. We have an inclusion crisis. When we start to step back to see this larger ecology, I think we see a picture of exclusion. And it doesn’t match the norms of the population of the United States”.
