Wednesday March 31st , 2021 marked International Transgender day of Visibility. This day is dedicated to celebrating transgender folks, acknowledging contributions that transgender people have made to society and raising awareness against discrimination that transgender person’s experience. Pride Hacks gave me an opportunity to build a tool that would help raise awareness about LGBTQ+ community.
What it does
This website is a colorful representation of all people. Just like the rainbow flag, the different colors within the flag were meant to represent togetherness, since LGBT people come in all races, ages and genders, and rainbows are both natural and beautiful. It displays a list of definitions LGBTQ+ identify with. This list is by no means exhaustive, and some of these terms – because they are so personal – likely mean different things to different people. If you're puzzled by a term and feel like you can ask someone you love in the LGBTQ community to help you make sense of it, do it.
How we built it
I built the website using Nicepage website builder and Filter Forge, a GUI based software for image processing. It contains thousands of filters to make image manipulation easy. It also provides a node based GUI for creating filters. I used photoshop to create the alphabet images and then used filters available on Filter Forge.
Challenges we ran into
Learning how to use Filter Forge following its documentation. Creating modal popups using Nicepage.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Created colorful graphics using Filter Forge and Photoshop. Finally hosted a website using a domain name from GoDaddy.
What we learned
Learnt image manipulation and some amazing tools to help create visually appealing graphics. Learnt how to create modal popups. Learnt a lot about the LGBTQ+ community.
What's next for One & All
One & All can be improved to include messages from the LGBTQ+ community and help them voice their opinions.
