The state of LGBT equality in the U.S.

Out and Equal, an organization dedicated to measuring and extending equality within the workplace and business world, used date compiled from across the country to create a map that skews the representation of states in accordance with their approach to LGBT people. 

The markers used were family status, non-discrimination policies, safety, health, and the ability to appropriately self-identify on ID cards and documentation. 

The two worst states in the union, it was found, are Tennessee and Alabama.

2015 was a year of great progress for LGBT rights in the U.S., but there is still have a long way to go.
