The Guardian has published some very interesting data regarding the civil rights (by statute) for gay, lesbian and transgender people on a range of issues, including marriage, hospital visitation, adoption, housing, employment and school bullying. The charts are illuminating, to say the least. Laws in America have evolved to allow — but in some cases ban — rights for LGBT folks on those issues.
The interactive charts published by the Guardian show the trends. By region, the Midwest and the Southeast are the most conservative and offer LGBT folks the least.
