  • "Three different stories of gays and their jobs are interwoven. Cheryl Summerville was fired from her job as a cook in the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain in Georgia for being a lesbian; she worked with Queer Nation and with the Martin Luther King, Jr., Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Inc., to organize multi-state demonstrations, boycotts and letter writing campaigns against the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain. Ron Woods, a gay auto plant electrician working for Chrysler in Detroit, was harassed on the job by his fellow workers after his picture appeared in the paper at a demonstration against Cracker Barrel; he worked with Local 372 of the United Auto Workers to educate his fellow workers about homosexuality and was eventually elected a delegate to the United Auto Workers 1996 Bargaining Convention, where he got the Convention to vote unanimously to add a clause to all contracts prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Nat Keitt, a gay library circulation clerk with the New York Public Library, was unable to afford the medical bills for her unemployed domestic partner, David, who suffered from AIDS; she was elected to the executive board of her union, Local 1930, AFSCME, and made co-chair of the union's Gay and Lesbian Issues Committee, which was eventually instrumental in winning domestic partner health benefits for New York city workers."@en
