Fair Employment for the Homosexual

Abstract

With some exceptions -hair-dressing, theatre, design, etc.-the known homosexual can count on losing his job. Professionals who are found out have been booted out of their chosen vocation, and a license to practice denied or taken away for moral reasons. Detected civil servants and servicemen have been discharged. In fact, an alien with homosexual leanings prior to entry into the United States can be deported. The increased militancy and visibility of the homosexual probably makes it more difficult for him to earn a living at the present time.
