GLAAD released its second annual Social Media Safety Index Wednesday, and none of the five platforms it analyzed—Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter or YouTube—received a passing grade.

GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis wrote in the introduction to the report, “The evolution of social media has significantly shifted the way that people relate to LGBTQ communities, and GLAAD has continued to innovate to keep step with the rapidly and ever-changing media landscape. Since its launch last year, our Social Media Safety Index is creating and sustaining the industry’s first standard for tackling online hate and intolerance and increasing safety for LGBTQ social media users.
