The Movement Advancement Project (MAP) tracks over 50 different LGBTQ-related laws and policies. This map shows the overall policy tallies (as distinct from sexual orientation or gender identity tallies) for each state, the District of Columbia, and the five populated U.S. territories. A state’s policy tally scores the laws and policies within each state that shape LGBTQ people's lives, experiences, and equality. The major categories of laws covered by the policy tally include: Relationship & Parental Recognition, Nondiscrimination, Religious Exemptions, LGBTQ Youth, Health Care, Criminal Justice, and Identity Documents.
Click on any state to view its detailed policy tally and state profile, or click "Choose an Issue" above to view maps on over 50 different LGBTQ-related laws and policies.
This project seeks to provide "travel advice" based on laws and practical safety within various jurisdictions. It is not geared towards people living in a state. However, information that might impact travelers in different situation will be mentioned. For instance, someone assigned to a business project for several months in a state may need to utilize medical care. Others may travel with children and be concerned about how this could be seen as child abuse or cause child custody issues.
This is not legal advice, and is not put together by a lawyer. This information is not guaranteed to be up-to-date or accurate. You should consult with an attorney with any questions.
A Place for Marsha is named after famous LGBTQ+ activist: Marsha P. Johnson. Here, we are connecting the Trans Community to help each other secure housing in states where Trans Rights are treated as Human Rights.
The mission of A Place for Marsha is to facilitate safe housing for trans individuals escaping transphobic states. Here, we connect trans people (18+) from states with heavy anti-trans legislation with volunteers in safer states who are willing to be their roommates.
A Place for Marsha is newly founded and needs your help getting off the ground. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us. All donations will go directly to moving costs.
Rainbow Railroad is a global not-for-profit organization that helps LGTBQI+ people facing persecution based on their sexual orientation, gender identity and sex characteristics. In a time when there are more displaced people than ever before, LGBTQI+ people are uniquely vulnerable due to systemic, state-enabled homophobia and transphobia. These factors either displace them in their own country or prevent them from escaping harm.
As a result of Rainbow Railroad, more LGBTQI+ individuals will be able to access lives free from persecution.
Since our founding, we’ve helped over 7,621 LGBTQI+ individuals find safety through emergency relocation and other forms of assistance. Our story has received international media attention, including a feature on CBS 60 Minutes.

Stone Butch Blues, Leslie Feinberg’s 1993 first novel, is widely considered in and outside the U.S. to be a groundbreaking work about the complexities of gender. Feinberg was the first theorist to advance a Marxist concept of “transgender liberation.” Sold by the hundreds of thousands of copies and also passed from hand-to-hand inside prisons, Stone Butch Blues has been translated into Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Slovenian, Turkish, and Hebrew (with hir earnings from that edition going to ASWAT Palestinian Gay Women). The novel was winner of the 1994 American Library Association Stonewall Book Award and a 1994 Lambda Literary Award.
The 20th Anniversary Author’s Edition of Stone Butch Blues is available in multiple formats. A free PDF can be downloaded from this site, and a hardcopy PoD version can be purchased from Lulu.

The contents of this site will change over time as new additions and revisions are made to further expand upon the full breadth of Gender Dysphoria. In its current iteration it is severely lacking in non-binary, agender & genderfluid specific dysphoria, as well as Third Gender and Two-Spirit narratives. The GDB is an open source and publicly funded project, contributions are extremely welcome.
