Despite inspiring gains in the Western world when it comes to acceptance of the LGBT community, international gay rights are not always recognized. A data visualization made available by The Guardian depicts LGBT rights around the world by letting you choose a region, pick a country and see more information to take action.
International gay rights can also be seen by category, such as consensual sex, workplace non-discrimination, marriage, adoption and protection against hate crime. The infographic ranks the best and worst countries in the world for LGBT rights as well. According to regional information, North America is leading the pack while Africa comes in last place.
The rainbow hued data visualization is timely, given the upcoming pride celebrations this summer.
