Inspiration

NC's governor passed a really shitty law that forces people to use the bathroom that matches the sex on their birth certificate. This is discriminatory against the transgender community and has made a lot of people not feel safe.

What it does

IGWY allows users with a .edu (for now) email to sign up as either a user or an ally. Users are able to identify what gender they would prefer an ally that goes with identifies. A user can find users in their area that are allies and notify whichever user they choose. An ally will get a notification when a user requests them. The ally can then choose to go with or decline the notification.

How I built it

Android Studio and Firebase. And GIMP for design :)

Challenges I ran into

Setting up finding users locations. Thank you Firebase!

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I got most of the design done and figured out everything I need to get it actually working.

What I learned

Firebase and geofire packages.

What's next for I'll Go With You
