Our project contains a world map that shows where it is legal and illegal to be gay, as well as punishable by death if you are gay. We also have a world map of where gay marriage is legal, where same-sex civil unions are legal, and also where both are illegal.
Our website also contains links to ways you can help international efforts to help secure rights for LGBT+ individuals around the world.
Around the world, there are many countries where it is illegal or punishable by death to be gay. Many people know this, but knowledge doesn't always translate into action.
We want to show where it is illegal to be gay in an uncomplicated way, and give links to easily accessible organizations that are helping global efforts in the LGBT+ community.
We had a lot of trouble finding a free world map API that was easy to use and edit the way we wanted. After extensive research, we were able to find one, with the only caveat being that we had to manually input our data for each country.
