It's infographic-o-clock! My favorite time. Anyway, the Guardian pieced together a visually pleasing graphic breaking down gay rights in each state. This is somewhat weird, because the Guardian is a UK paper, but hey, thanks!
Not only does it color-code each state's level of acceptance, but the version on its website fills you in on each segment. Split up by region, the chart shows Oregon as the second most accepting state in the Northwest. Of course, first place goes to recent gay marriage welcomer, Washington.
The Northeast takes the cake for offering the most gender-equal programs. Except for Pennsylvania and Delaware. Get on board! Of course the Southeast is a bummer. But hooray for Arkansas for allowing same-sex adoption!
