Representation and Rights : The Impact of LGBT Legislators in Comparative Perspective  / Andrew Reynolds.

American Political Science Review, 107 (2013) 2 (may), p. 259-274
bron: American Political Science Review jaargang: 107 (2013) 2 (may), p. 259-274
samenvatting: This article focuses on the link between the representation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in national legislatures and the existence of equality laws focused on sexual orientation. It addresses three interrelated questions: how many "out" LGBT legislators have served in national parliaments, what explains the cross-national variation in their legislative presence, and what is the relationship between the presence of gay legislators and the enactment of laws that treat gay and straight citizens equally? There is an established literature arguing that the representation of women and ethnic minorities "descriptively" in national legislatures improves the realization of their policy preferences and the position of the group within the society as a whole. This article draws on that literature and extends the analysis to LGBT communities. It finds that the presence of even a small number of openly gay legislators is associated significantly with the future passage of enhanced gay rights, even after including controls for social values, democracy, government ideology, and electoral system design. Once openly gay legislators are in office they have a transformative effect on the views and voting behavior of their straight colleagues. This "familiarity through presence" effect is echoed in studies of U.S. state legislatures and levels of social tolerance of homosexuality in the population at large.

samenvatting: We investigate the link between the presence of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) members of parliament (MPs) around the world and the enactment of laws that ensure equity and protection for LGBT persons. We ask three major questions: How many openly LGBT legislators serve or have served in national legislatures? What factors determine their success from nation to nation? What is the relationship between the presence of these legislators and the enactment of laws that promote equal rights for LGBT people? 181 openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender legislators have been elected to serve in national office in 30 countries since 1976: As of April 2013 there were 127 Members of Parliament in 25 countries: 97 gay men, 25 lesbians, four bisexual, and one transgender MP. There were 107 lower house members and 20 upper house members. In our study 96 countries (those with and without LGBT MPs) were scored on the progressiveness of their LGBT legislation on a scale from -2 (the most homophobic) to 6 (the closest to equality). Globally, in 2003 the average score was 0.47, in 2008 it had risen to 0.98, and by 2011 it was 1.18. There is a clear relationship between LGBT MPs' presence and progressive law. The 27 countries who have experienced at least one LGBT MP averaged 3.6 in 2011, while the 69 nations with no LGBT MPs averaged 0.3.

samenvatting: The Cold War, The Lavender Scare and the Untold Story of Eisenhower's First National Security Advisor. This page-turning narrative takes readers from top-secret Cabinet Room meetings to exclusive social clubs, and into the pages of a powerful man's intimate diary. Ike's Mystery Man shows that Eisenhower's National Security Advisor Robert "Bobby" Cutler (1895-1974) -- working alongside Ike and also the Dulles brothers at the CIA and State Department -- shaped US Cold War strategy in far more consequential ways than has been previously understood. Bobby also left behind a six-volume diary which reveals that he was in love with a man half his age, NSC staffer Skip Koons. Their friend Steve Benedict, who also is gay, became Ike's White House Security Officer. In addition to Bobby's diary, Ike's Mystery Man relies on thousands of personal letters, interviews, and previously classified archives to tell a gripping story that has never before been told. Ike's Mystery Man brings a new dimension to our understanding of the inner-workings of the Eisenhower White House. It also shines a bright light on the indispensable contributions and sacrifices made by patriotic gay Americans in an era when Executive Order 10450 banned anyone suspected of "sexual perversion", i.e. homosexuality, from any government job, and gays in the government were persecuted by the likes of Joseph McCarthy and Roy Cohn in the Senate, and J. Edgar Hoover and Clyde Tolson at the FBI.
