UK-based newspaper The Guardian released a colorful graphic on its website today showing which U.S. states are gay-friendly and which are not.

Not surprisingly, Tennessee (and the rest of the southeast) failed on pretty much every account. The graphic shows Tennessee has "no law or is unclear" on protections for LGBT people in schools, housing, employment, or hospital visits. It also shows that Tennessee has a law against gay marriage, and the state has limited rights for LGBT couples wishing to adopt or for for LGBT people victimized by hate crimes.
