Equaldex, The Collaborative LGBT Knowledge Base, to Launch on February 25

After months of testing and contributions by hundreds of Alpha Testers, Equaldex will be launching to the public on Tuesday, February 25. The site is a global LGBT rights website that can be edited by anyone.

Aimed at becoming a comprehensive resource for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) laws and data in each country and region, Equaldex allows users to contribute data — along with sources — which becomes verified by other users.

Upon launching to the public, the entire Equaldex site will become publicly visible, while editing will be restricted to members who have been granted access. 

Want to try it out early? Request access to Equaldex.

Journalists: for press and media inquiries, please contact Dan Leveille (dan@equaldex.com) for additional information and a demo.



Where is it legal to be gay?

An [Incomplete] Map Generated By Equaldex Users

Above is a map of the world showing where homosexual activity is legal and illegal. Many of the red countries include penalties of life in prison and the death penalty.

This interactive map (along with 7 other maps for other LGBT issues) was generated using data contributed by Equaldex users, however it’s far from complete. Also, most data has not yet been verified by other users, so it's likely that there are errors. Historical data is also being collected, so maps could be generated for any day in history.

Equaldex is still in private Alpha. Want to be among the first 100 people to use Equaldex? I'm looking for more Alpha testers to help test, contribute, or give feedback about the site.

Want early access? I'm sending out more invites this weekend.

77794 Bergoglio1 by danlev

Here's a 2010 equalitopia article by r0b where the newly elected Pope Francis (Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio) describes gay marriage as being the work of the devil:
Argentina’s highest-ranking Catholic prelate has warned that the country’s gay marriage bill is a “machination” of the devil, reports Pink News. 

Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio has called on priests in Buenos Aires, where he is archbishop, to protest against the bill, which is progressing through Argentina’s parliament.

In a letter to the monasteries of Buenos Aires, he wrote: “Let’s not be naive, we’re not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God .. We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God.”

New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.

Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.

Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?

Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up in the countryside with his mother, who moves to the city to pursue his dreams. Along the way he falls in love with another boy, but he struggles to connect with people as he contemplates coming out to his mother.

Hello. I hope this message finds everyone in good spirits.

As a staunch supporter of the gay rights movement, I wrote and published my first novel, Drive [link]. In it, a young journalist seeks the truth behind his city's war on the gay community, all the while struggling to protect the one he loves more than anything-his best friend Lain.

I write this not in the hope of shameless self promotion. I write it in the hope of changing someone's, anyone's life. Thank you for your valuable time.

And that line about me not writing for 'shameless self promotion'-it was not an attack. I just don't want anyone to think I'm only out to promote myself, nothing more.
