Praise for Gay Issues in the Workplace

"Clear, well-organized and straightforward, McNaught's book is an excellent resource. This is a book for gays to read and share with their colleagues and, when possible, their employers . . . a significant index of how lesbians and gay men are transforming society by being out in the workplace."--Genre

"A 'must-read' for diversity trainers."--Jerry Dark, Associate Vice President for Human Resources at Georgia Tech University

"An excellent, hands-on managerial guide book."--Lambda Book Report

"Essential reading . . . a clear and comprehensive primer offering a sensible and sensitive guide."--Ed Mickens, editor and publisher, Working It Out: The Newsletter for Gay and Lesbian Employment Issues

"A useful handbook."--Publishers Weekly

"Straights and gays alike have something to learn from this concise, academic and human book. Historic facts and definitions provide a sound basis for understanding, and McNaught's anecdotal flourishes from work and family life bring the material well into the '90s."--Southern Voice

"Every manager and employee who takes our course on 'Homophobia in the Workplace' will receive a copy of this book. Brian McNaught has an incredible skill in helping people understand and respond to gay issues in a nonthreatening way."--Sheila Landers, Personnel Services Manager at AT&T Network Systems
