An Interactive Visualization of Gay Rights in the U.S. by State

In honor of Obama's realization that government shouldn't discriminate against its citizens (what took so long?) and in lamentation of North Carolina's adoption of Amendment One (why can't everyone have equal rights before the government, people?), I present a very cool interactive infographic from The Guardian that details gay rights in the USA by state:

The darker and more numerous the squares, the more equal gay citizens are in the eyes of the law.

Obviously, that's just a partial screenshot - click here to go to the interactive version and learn in-depth about each state's treatment of its gay citizens. DC does very well - not surprisingly, my birth state of TN does not.
