"Discrimination against Lesbians in the Work Force"

by Levine, Martin P; Leonard, Robin (1984)


The lesbian and gay movement has long maintained that there is widespread discrimination against lesbians and gay men in the work force.'Gay men and lesbians have repeatedly claimed that they were fired, not hired, or not promoted because of their sexual orientation. To redress this wrong, they have turned to employers, legislative bodies, and the courts, demanding laws and personnel policies that bar such discrimination.
