Combining the stories of LGBT trailblazers with analysis of historical data, anecdotal evidence, research, and literature, Antigay Bias in Role-Model Occupations is the first book to explore in a comprehensive fashion the broad effects of sexual orientation discrimination in role-model occupations well beyond its individual victims.
E. Gary Spitko is Presidential Professor of Ethics and the Common Good and Professor of Law at Santa Clara University.
"E. Gary Spitko makes a unique contribution to the literature regarding equality, law and gay identity. While the public discourse regarding gay rights has mainly been preoccupied with the movement for marriage equality, Spitko helpfully illustrates that marriage equality is not tantamount to full political equality as a citizen. Specifically, discrimination and exclusion from the workplace is a critical space where gay inequality is imposed and curtails gay human rights. The book provides a strong case for how employment discrimination in role model occupations removes gay role models from public visibility with detrimental repercussions across all other equality realms."—Tanya K. Hernandez, author of Racial Subordination in Latin America: The Role of the State, Customary Law, and the New Civil Rights Response
"An important and original contribution. Analyzing how a wide range of professions are affected by discrimination, and how this behavior serves a common purpose in reinforcing antigay norms, E. Gary Spitko makes a case that others will cite, build on, and utilize in their work."—Samuel A. Marcosson, University of Louisville
