About this Project:

On the internet there is a vast amount of misinformation of the LGBTQ+ community, which can make people who don’t know much have a negative opinion due to lack of trustworthy information .

With how many different sources there is it can be hard to differentiate between which are reliable and which are misinformation.

Our solution to the problem described in the last slide is an app that can be used to easily obtain information relating to the LGBTQ+ community

In the the app you can view news, see definitions, and have different hotlines readily available.

With the app people who know nothing about the LGBTQ+ community can become educated on how the community truly is and have a better understanding on how the community functions

Community Feedback:

Great Design
Makes Me Think

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Sr Community Manager at CareerVillage.org — Emoti-Con Judge
As a proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community, I love the idea for this app! Misinformation is a really big issue right now and I think this would help fight that. Misinformation doesn't just lead to ignorance but can be the catalyst for hatred.

I would suggest focusing on how you're going to get people to see that you are a truthful source. In the age of misinformation, it's hard to trust anything. Think about how your going to build that trust!

This is such an important app! As a young queer person, I really needed access to this type of information but, unfortunately, there was no internet yet (I'm old LOL). But the internet brought a confusing amount of conflicting information. Your app would be an important source of information for young people today. The pages are well thought out and the information is well organized. I like the way that you guide the user based on their self-identified orientations. You might want to include access to some national GLBTQ+ organizations such as GLAAD, HRC, GLSTN and especially PFLAG, which might help students direct their parents to a supportive organization as well. This can also protect GLBTQ+ youth from going to more dangerous places to get information so it provides a very important, possibly life saving, service. Great idea!

This is amazing! Lack of information about the LGBTQ Community it's something that we still struggle with, so having an app like this; Really well thought out, explained, and so well designed I think would help better the problems we face due to the lack of information about the LGBTQ Community. This is really great, nice job.

Not only is the UI very well designed it takes into account UX. This app is extremely creative and tackles a huge issue in our current environment for LGBTQ+ Community. This app design definitely deserves more attention than it is getting!
