When, in 1992, the citizens of Colorado ratified Amendment 2, effectively stripping lesbians, gay men, and bisexuals of protection from discrimination under the state's constitution, the vote divided the state and left the gay population disspirited and angry. Their psychological predicament offered an opportunity to examine the precise intersection at which the individual meets social oppression. Voted Out is the first to document the psychological impact of anti-gay legislation on the gay community, illustrating the range of reactions, from depression, anger, and anxiety to a sense of empowerment and a desire to mobilize, which such legislation can engender. It also offers a detailed account of an innovative team approach to the qualitative coding and analysis process. Blending traditional quantitative methods with more innovative qualitative analyses, it provides a valuable opportunity to compare quantitative and qualitative data focused on the same issue within one volume. The volume specifically addresses researchers' use of the results of their research beyond publication and the ways in which research undertaken to examine a social issue can be returned to the community.

Welfare Policy is for me an occasion for rejoicing. Grounded in the present public controversy over so-called welfare reform, these chapters . . . model a genre of feminist ethics, informed normatively by radical readings of Christian or related religious traditions. This book is distinctive, however, because its theological perspective is profoundly and unapologetically political, rooted in an advocacy stance for a policy that aims at women's well-being. --Beverly W. Harrison, from the Foreword Welfare Policy: Feminist Critiques looks behind the political-moral mask to explore the issues at stake for women and children in the welfare debate.

A new reading that troubles and transgresses the normal with regard to biblical studies and our understandings of gender and sexuality Despite its lack of both historical and exegetical clarity, 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 has often been fundamental to understandings of gender and sexuality in many Christian traditions. In particular, a hierarchical model of gender and a heterosexual model of sexuality tend to dominate and are presented as “natural” and “God-ordained.” With the materialist lesbian theory of Monique Wittig providing the theoretical basis for discussion, this book intersects various biblical, theological, and queer lines of inquiry across 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 in order to reveal and challenge these models of gender and sexuality that lie behind both the text itself and its various interpretations. Features Reveals the complex relationship between effeminacy, masculinity and sexual relations in the first century Greco-Roman environment of the New Testament Explores the ideologies of sexuality that underlie much of the debate within evangelical circles Examines Karl Barth’s theology on the binary pairing of “man and woman” as asymmetrically related to each other and to God through the notion of the imago dei, revealing and challenging the ways in which this reflects androcentric and patriarchal ideologies

Three Grim Fairy Tales and a Happy Ending is based on personal experience and insight of an active straight advocate in the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transsexual (GLBT) Community. Debi Lowry's son, Ian, is gay and the organizations she supports and contributes to support the rights of those individuals. Some of the storylines used in this book are drawn from the experiences of people she has met. None of the fictional parts are based solely on one individual, but on a composite of many of the people who she has encountered over the years. Being the openly accepting parent of a gay child is not easy. Parents who do not hide the fact they have a gay child run the risk of seeing a broad range of reactions. People will often ask, "What are you going to do?" "How did it happen?" They will offer apologies and sympathy. They will suggest seeking help from clergy or mental health professionals. They whisper and speak in hushed tones to others when the topic of sexuality comes up. They make comments about not having grandchildren. There is not so much concern about how the gay child is doing, but more about what will be thought of the family of the gay child.

The religious right claims to be the champions of family values - political shorthand for the reassertion of the "traditional" heterosexual, nuclear family, complete with traditional gender roles of working Dad and stay-at-home Mom raising godly children. Elizabeth Say and Mark Kowalewski present a new view. Exploring not only the ways gays and lesbians live as families but also the values that emerge from their shared experiences, they skillfully construct an ethic of five family values - preserving fidelity, seeking mutuality and accountability, giving life, sustaining identity and community, and nurturing erotic power. These values, the authors suggest, are integral to all intimate relationships. When put into practice, they have the power to transform families from oppressive systems to places of acceptance, growth, and stability.
