Driving Equality is a 107-day, 22,000-mile, 48-state trek across America to collect stories from LGBTQ people in an effort to raise awareness of the various forms of discrimination faced by our community in each state of the nation. Highlighting the differences in rights, laws, and amendments between the states will shed light on the current social standing of queer individuals today. I hope to create a dialogue about the disparities across the nation, and what can be done to end discrimination for all.
During the 107-day trip, I met with LGBTQ community organizers, activists, allies, opponents, and any citizens willing to talk. Through these interviews, I have gained, and will share, an understanding of the current political climates, and explore ways of combating discrimination. Throughout my journey, I made frequent posts on this website, including photos and video clips. Be sure to check the archives to catch all the exciting interviews!
Part one of The Driving Equality Project, the equality drive, is complete. On to Part two; a documentary of my experience with the aim of activating a discussion about potential strategies for ensuring equality. The film is being edited and a final product will be released soon.
