Sexual Orientation Harrasment in the Workplace
28 February 2003 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This film tells three stories of discrimination in the workplace based on sexual orientation.

The first story deals with Cracker Barrel's 1988 Policy that all gay workers would be fired. The story centers on a lesbian in the south who had worked for them for number of years as a cook. When she was fired she went to Queer Nation who helped her publicize her story. Their actions resulted in the largest boycott of a business ever related to sexual orientation issues.

The second story deals with the blatant hazing of a new trainee at Cantor Fitzgerald (L.A.) when it was learned that he was gay. The hazing went so far as to include posting nudie picture with the trainee's head pasted on and even to professionally repainting his car with sexual epithets. Making this all the more blatant was a video that was produced of the hazing that was shown at a national conference.

The third story deals with a third generation autoworker who was employed at Chrysler. While he encountered rampant prejudice as well, he was able to make some progress in educating some folks and even was successful in getting some anti-discrimination language added to the Unions contract wordings.

Of the three stories, I was most affected by the Cantor Fitzgerald piece. The bigots involved in these episodes were bright college educated men who should have learned better somewhere along the way. These bigots were even equal opportunity offenders in that the video they made of having the guys car painted with sexual sayings shows them parading around in BLACK FACE and YELLOW FACE disguises.
