As per the CDC [1], LGBT youth are almost 5 times more likely to have attempted to commit suicide as compared to Heterosexual youth. To prevent that, it is necessary to have someone to talk to, or a community that supports them, or perhaps we can call it an unofficial "helpline".

What it does

It is a progressive web application that allows LGBTQ + Allies to connect with like-minded people (anonymously or openly, up to them) and provides them with an unofficial "helpline". Our application is built to facilitate volunteers too, who can join in during their free time and talk to those in need.

How we built it

We used Flutter for the front end, MySQL for storing data and Python with flask to develop the Rest API, that is working as the backend for this application.

Challenges we ran into

Fetching JSON Responses in Flutter.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Finally being able to complete it!

What we learned

About API Integration in Flutter and developing Rest APIs with Flask.

What's next for PrideNet

We'll deploy it as soon as possible and try to have a full product ready!
