Chart Of The Day

The Guardian's interactive chart on gay rights by type and by state is worth a few minutes of your time. Some background on how and why it was made:

When the idea of doing a gay marriage interactive was mentioned I had two initial thoughts. First, I didn't want to use a map given that a quick Google search would find any number of news sites with just that. Second, I didn't want to focus solely on gay marriage. The political dialogue seems to define the quality of life for gays and lesbians based on their right to marry, but it's much more complicated than that.
