WHY?

WHY?


These stories are needed

Even with increased visibility in recent years, the LGBTQ+ community still offers an under-examined perspective. Data driven research is one way to explore endless aspects of these experiences, providing important insights.



The time is now

Lack of large scale and reliable data sources have long plagued this domain. However, we have access to more information today than ever before! Leveraging open-source resources, tools, and techniques allows us to thrive despite data availability challenges.



Change is happening

The larger goal is to provide a more empirical lens in which to view the LGBTQ+ community; challenging more prevalent stances centered on religious and/or individualized beliefs and opinions. Ultimately, this can result in expanded outlooks, better understanding, and more inclusive policies!
