LGBTQ+ Athletes: We’re Stronger Together
University of Minnesota College of Design
Concept/Purpose of the Work:
The purpose of this animation is to visualize data related to LGBTQ+ athletes while implementing elements of storytelling.
Results of the Work:
LGBTQ+ Athletes: We're Stronger Together demonstrates both the unfortunate, harmful reality of being an LGBTQ+ athlete and the upward, positive trend of LGBTQ+ visibility in sports. Visible LGBTQ+ athletes are creating a more inclusive environment in which athletes can feel safer and more comfortable expressing their gender and sexuality.
How the Work Was Delivered to the Masses:
The work was submitted to my Data Visualization professor as my final project.
