ABC Family was among several cable networks named as most inclusive of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) images and storylines, while HBO offers the most LGBT characters on-air, according to two separate GLAAD reports released Friday.

MTV and Showtime also received "good" marks, according to the report.

HBO, TLC, TNT and USA Network garnered "adequate" grades, while TBS and History generated "failing" grades, according to the organization.
