Ace Characters on TV

The TV industry has worked to broaden LGBT+ representation on televisions, but asexual characters are still few and far in between.

It’s no secret that the spectrum of gender identity and sexual orientation is severely underrepresented and under-explored in pop culture. GLAAD publishes a report on representation in TV every year, and it wasn’t until the 2017-2018 season that the media monitoring organisation was able to count asexual regular or recurring characters on TV (Raphael on Shadowhunters and Todd on BoJack Horseman).

In 2016, it was confirmed that Jughead, the crown-wearing character in Archie Comics, is asexual. Unfortunately, that didn’t translate to the TV adaption of the comic, Riverdale.
