Do Not Expect Quality Family Entertainment from Hallmark This Christmas
In response to online criticism about a lack of LGBTQ inclusion in their upcoming Christmas movies, the vice president of network publicity for Crown Media Family, Hallmark’s parent company, issued an emailed statement to clarify the intentions for the upcoming releases. He identified diversity and inclusion as “top priority.”
“We look forward to making some exciting programming announcements in the coming months, including announcements about projects featuring LGBTQ storylines, characters, and actors,” he said in the statement.
So . . . expect the annual “Countdown to Christmas” and “Miracles of Christmas” lineups to include LGBTQ narratives!
