Diamond’s dedicated collection of data about people who are transgender working on UKtelevision programmes is without precedent, and it has given the industry its first insights intothe representation of transgender people in the industry.With five years’ worth of data, we can conclude that people who identify as transgender arerepresented at levels lower than the UK population estimate of 0.8%. Representation is betteron-screen where contributions have varied between 0.5 and 0.8% over the last five years. Off-screen representation is much lower, although we have seen a slight increase in transgenderpeople’s representation off-screen from <0.1% in year 1 to 0.3% this year.
