1. Lecklider, Aaron. "“Every Man and Woman is Potentially Homosexual”: Homosexuality, Race, Criminality, and Incarceration in the 1930s Left" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Studies Association Annual Meeting, Hyatt Regency Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1262343_index.html>
Publication Type: Internal Paper
Abstract: In 1932, John Pittman, an important Communist organizer, published his editorial decrying prejudice against homosexuals in a black newspaper, spurred by the arrest of several drag queens in San Francisco. Five years later, Angelo Herndon, a black Communist organizer sentenced to a jail sentence who became a radical cause celebre, published a book detailing his time in prison, particularly highlighting homosexuality behind bars. Three years after that, Benjamin Gitlow published his own prison memoir, in which he considered the racial politics of same-sex contact in prison. This paper looks at these texts alongside other leftist work from the 1930s to think about the relationship between homosexuality, race, criminality, and incarceration as it was articulated within radical non-fiction. Though the Communist Party failed to take a clear stand on homosexuality in the Depression era, members’ interest in disrupting narratives of crime and race allowed for a complicated engagement with same-sex intimacy that was made visible within the cultural front.

Abstract: Attitudes towards homosexuality in the United States today are reciprocally related to political party preferences, with Democrats substantially more supportive (standardized effect of .21 for both men and women) but, in addition, with men who are more supportive of homosexuality for other reasons more likely to therefore shift to the Democratic Party (standardized effect of .14). These results are from structural equation models with appropriate instrumental variables applied to a large representative national sample. Analysis of data from 21 Western European nations shows that this politicisation of homosexuality is unique to recent years: in 1998 there was almost no relationship between attitudes towards homosexuality and party identification in the United States or elsewhere.

3. Baumle, Amanda. and Poston, Dudley. "The Cost of Being Homosexual" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Montreal Convention Center, Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Aug 11, 2006 Online <PDF>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p103559_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This paper builds in two ways on earlier studies that have examined “the cost of being homosexual,” both by using data from the 2000 Census and by employing multilevel analyses. In doing so, we have uncovered results that stand in sharp contrast to many of the previous findings about the relationships between sexual orientation and income, and the role that contextual variables play in influencing these relationships. Further, our findings emphasize that the cost of being a gay man differs greatly from that of being a lesbian, and that gender plays an important role in determining the manner in which contextual variables influence the relationship between sexual orientation and income.

4. Kachgal, Tara. "'My Name is Janice, and My Daughter is a Lesbian': Youth Homosexuality and the Lifetime Original" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, New Orleans Sheraton, New Orleans, LA, May 27, 2004 Online <.PDF>. 2019-06-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p113444_index.html>

Abstract: The Lifetime Original The Truth About Jane is a highly rated, award-winning telefilm and one of the first U.S. TV movies concerning teen lesbianism. It presents what seems to be a healthy, normative understanding of adolescence, in line with broader, liberal parental discourses of youth homosexuality. I argue, however, that this narrative is complicated because it risks fixing lesbian and gay sexual identity in essentialist terms, something that may serve an ultimate purpose of assuring straight parents that gay and lesbian children will grow up no different than other children. The identity work of the title character, Jane, and her mother, Janice, is examined using Foucault’s understanding of confession as a ritual of discourse, which provides the means of producing the truth of one’s sexuality and reducing guilt but is always constrained by being compelled and adjudicated, in this case by a straight viewer. The analysis also focuses on key extratextual elements of the film’s production and reception, which include being promoted as part of a “commitment” on the part of Lifetime to address pressing social issues and being produced in the context of “women’s television” and for an audience comprised mostly of heterosexual wives and mothers. I conclude by positing the TV movie as a regulatory scheme for mediating the representation of the American family, one that seems flexible and open to reworking the very notion of family by incorporating new conceptions of youth homosexuality but that ultimately contains the specter of deviant sexuality.
