Out at Work

Editors: Kitty Krupat and Patrick McCreery

Year Published: 2000

Description: Through a compilation of contributions by prominent gay rights advocates, labor leaders and politicians, Out at Work: How to Build a Gay-Labor Alliance provides a multi-faceted assessment of the movement toward workplace equality and protections for the LGBT community at the start of the 21st century. A key theme is the misconception that LGBT individuals tend to work in primarily white-collar jobs, while in fact, according to the book, much of the work toward LGBT-inclusive work culture has its roots in the union context.
