WEBSITE: Excellent LGBT Resource

The website of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex Association is a cornucopia of information!

If for no other reason, this site site is incredible because of the map feature. Wondering what laws surrounding sex and LGBT issues are in Turkmenistan??? They’ve got that info.

It seems they survey LGBTI groups in each country to get an idea of the law, mood, and LGBTI campaigns in their region. I’d like to more about their methodologies of collecting information because this resource almost seems to good to be true.

Regardless, a few minutes’ browsing can turn up a seriously sorry state of affairs in some places for LGBT people. I mean, just look at the list of topics:

I cannot wait until these are non-issues. Sadly, I doubt it will be global in my lifetime. When it comes to this topic, I am proud to be Canadian.
