Visualizing gay rights in America, state by state

Thank you, President Obama, for coming out with your public support of marriage equality.

Thank you for also, in turn, sparking this delightful series of data visualizations of gay rights by state in America. The Guardian Data Blog is one of my favorites for doing things like this.

The original interactive display that sparked the series can be explored here and is pictured below.

And how do the four states where I’ve lived stack up against each other? Ohio disappoints (not surprising) and the very blue Massachusetts and DC come out ahead of the pack.

  1. Hello Amanda, nice blog, just a small update that this visualization was made by guardian interactive team in America, lead by Gabriel Dance and not from The Guardian Data Blog, this is in-house production :) cheers
