"Look for the Union Label": Exploring the Contradictions and Complications in LGBT Terminology

Academic Article


  • This article is an exploration of the implications of the gay label applied to LGBT persons and how that label surpasses all others in its implications. The author's particular focus is on the decades since World War II, where religious, legal, and political definitions all got mixed together into a mélange of cleavages affecting everything from the most definitive national and international proclamations to the personal behavior and beliefs of gay and straight individuals. © The Author(s).
