New online tool shows which states give LGBT citizens legal protections

The Guardian released an interactive tool showing which states give LGBT citizens which rights and protections.  It’s sad that this is something that needs to be made, but it’s a powerful tool.

It show’s protections in the areas of marriage, hospital visitation, adoption, employment protections, housing protections, hate crimes and school harassment policies.  Really worth checking out.

He began writing extensively on LGBT rights during the first ballot initiative in Maine that overturned marriage equality. He writes about a variety of issues, ranging from marriage to issues facing LGBT youth. Follow him on Twitter at @NDSeaver.
