The Franklin & Marshall Global Barometer of Gay Rights (F&M GBGR®) and Global Barometer of Transgender Rights (F&M GBTR™) measures state and societal level protection or persecution of sexual orientation and gender identity minorities worldwide. Housed at Franklin & Marshall College, the F&M GBGR® and GBTR™ team has spent over a decade working on developing data collection and research used in the annual report that they release to the world. Their work in this subject matter has had global impact and will continue to be a key component of many changes to come for human rights.
A key component of the interior page templates was demonstrating the classifications of both barometers. From there, we also used GID to combine annual GBGR® and GBTR™ scores on a world map. Those country scores can be sorted by year, by barometer, and are color-coordinated to align with the grading system set in place. If desired, users can also navigate through supporting publications and annual reports.
“Incredibly professional, prompt and helpful. We LOVED the website that they created in an extremely time constrained period. HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend!”Dr. Susan Dicklitch-Nelson, Principal Investigator, F&M GBGR® / GBTR™, Professor of Government, Franklin & Marshall College
