We used interactive data visualization to create a map of the United States that show you what your legal rights are as a transgender person. We started with housing and employment discrimination laws, but the project is scalable and can be expanded to include any number of rights.
It can also be modified to include links to legal resources in specific states. And it can be modified to include information based on individual counties.
Finally, the information can be updated in an admin panel as the state of the law changes in the future.
We were inspired to create this app because this information does not exist in one central place on the web, in a simple graphical presentation.
This tool will help transgender people and their significant others, friends, family and allies understand what their legal rights are and readily find information, as well as help the general public understand the issues.
