Leave it to U.K. media to create the coolest possible graphic explaining gay rights across the U.S.
No, but really. This interactive chart breaks down pretty much every valid gay rights issue and looks at how every state addresses it. Using different shadings of colors to signify progress on each issue, the chart looks at how each state handles marriage/unions, hospital visitation, adoption, employment, housing, hate crimes and education.
A quick glance at this chart shows that some regions are doing much, much better than others (get your act together, Southeast). If you ever have the freedom to move anywhere in the U.S., consider using this as a guide to what kind of rights you’ll have there!
Thanks to everyone who recommended I post this - there were a lot of you!
