Dan Leveille, a website developer from Los Angeles, has created an online database for LGBT rights and legislation from around the world called Equaldex. Equaldex in its current form is graphic-intensive but easy to navigate and user friendly. The main page shows a world map with different LGBT concerns listed at the top of the page and includes links to which countries allow LGBT couples or individuals the ability to adopt, marriage equality, military involvement, housing and employment discrimination, which places still practice conversion therapy and if one can legally change their gender. Click on a country and it will bring up their LGBT profile. Leveille also chose to include a profile breakdown of each U.S. state.
