Feeling safe while traveling isn't always an easy task for members of the LGBTQ+ community, but a new tool called Destination Pride is hoping to change that by providing travelers with streamlined access to data regarding a country's approach to LGBTQ+ issues.
This tool helps those planning a vacation visualize data regarding a variety of issues, including "anti-discrimination laws, gender identity protections, sexual activity laws and same-sex marriage." When searching a country using this resource, users will be presented with a bar chart that ranks each location in terms of its approach to these issues. Each chart features a clickable link that offers further information regarding a country's safety score.
While Destination Pride doesn't intend to discourage travel, it does hope to help users make a more informed decision about the country they're planning to visit.
