#31: Out at Work
30:44
<p>Earlier this year we launched our Out at Work project, looking to explore the complicated stories that come with being queer on the job. We asked you to share your own experiences, and nearly 3,000 of you wrote in. Here's what we found:</p> <ul> <li>More than half of you — <strong>52 percent</strong> — said you are out at work.</li> <li><strong>Thirteen percent</strong> of you said you aren’t out at all.</li> <li>And about a third — <strong>35 percent</strong> — said you are <em>somewhat </em>out.</li> </ul> <p>That third group, the people who are somewhat out, shows just how squishy words like “in” and “out” can be. There are innumerable ways to be out at work, but looking across our survey data and responses, we narrowed in on six.</p> <div class="embedded-image"><img class="mcePuppyImage" src="https://media2.wnyc.org/i/800/200/l/80/1/Nancy_OutAtWork_WebHeaders_ProfessionallyQueer.png" alt=""><strong> </strong></div> <p><strong>My queerness is an essential part of my work.</strong></p> <blockquote> <p>“I work in an LGBT non-profit community center doing youth programming. Before that I worked at a college in their LGBT center as administrative assistance. All in all I have been a professional gay for almost 8 years. I used to say that people at the college would see me and see rainbows flying off of me as I walked around. I am out as out can be.” <span>— <em>K, Pennsylvania</em></span></p> </blockquote> <p><em>Listen to Dana's story:</em></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="54" scrolling="no" src="https://www.wnyc.org/widgets/ondemand_player/nancy/#file=https://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/audio.wnyc.org/nancy_extra/nancy_extra102917_4complicated.mp3&amp;share=0" width="100%"></iframe></p> <div class="embedded-image"><img class="mcePuppyImage" src="https://media2.wnyc.org/i/800/200/l/80/1/Nancy_OutAtWork_WebHeaders_OutAndProud.png" alt=""><strong> </strong></div> <p><strong>I’m totally out about my identity at work.</strong> </p> <blockquote> <p><span>“I'm non-binary, so it required a public announcement to my team to make sure everyone understood.

Testosterone never really affected my voice, or my curves. As soon as I open my mouth to speak or stand up -- I'm out. There's no option for me to be stealth. My body gives me away the moment I'm present… I *never* have the option of choosing when I'm out or not." — <em>S, California</em></span></p> </blockquote> <p><em>Listen to Alison's story:</em></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="54" scrolling="no" src="https://www.wnyc.org/widgets/ondemand_player/nancy/#file=https://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/audio.wnyc.org/nancy_extra/nancy_extra102917_3peoplecantell.mp3&amp;share=0" width="100%"></iframe></p> <div class="embedded-image"><img class="mcePuppyImage" src="https://media2.wnyc.org/i/800/200/l/80/1/Nancy_OutAtWork_WebHeaders_ItsComplicated.png" alt=""><strong> </strong></div> <p><strong>I'm out about some things, but keep others to myself.</strong></p> <blockquote> <p>“I'm a graduate student working in a chemistry lab as part of my PhD. I'm out to all of my coworkers and fellow graduate students, but my adviser has expressed some very homophobic views.

Typically I am out at work, but I tend to avoid discussing my sexuality at all on job sites. The machismo culture of construction sites is intimidating and I have to command respect when I'm there and can't afford a loss of respect from the site staff because of any imagined personal weakness. At my most recent job, on my fourth day of work I was pulled aside by my boss as we came back from our first work lunch where we talked about some of our personal lives and not just work issues. He told me that he was very excited to have me working there, but he cautioned me that I should never mention my husband again while I worked there because, while he 'was cool with it' the senior management was very conservative and might choose to fire me." — <em>S, Virginia</em></p> </blockquote> <p><em>Listen to Patrick's story:</em></p> <p><iframe frameborder="0" height="54" scrolling="no" src="https://www.wnyc.org/widgets/ondemand_player/nancy/#file=https://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/audio.wnyc.org/nancy_extra/nancy_extra102917_6irrelevant.mp3&amp;share=0" width="100%"></iframe></p> <hr> <h2>Inside this episode</h2> <ul> <li>Asa Sevelius is principal of the <a href="https://www.brookline.k12.ma.us/heath">Heath School</a> in Brookline, Mass.</li> <li>Clair Farley is the director of economic development at the <a href="http://www.sfcenter.org">San Francisco LGBT Center</a>; Mia Satya is an employment services specialist with the center's <a href="http://transemploymentprogram.org">Trans Employment Program</a>.</li> <li>Check out the <a href="http://www.wnyc.org/story/nancy-podcast-out-at-work/">results from our Out at Work survey</a>, plus a whole bunch of resources for navigating being queer on the job.</li> </ul> <p>Episode scoring by Jeremy Bloom with additional music by Drake Stafford (<a href="http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Drake_Stafford/Drake_Stafford_-_Singles/Matte_Black_-_Drake_Stafford">"Matte Black"</a>) and Evan Schaeffer (<a href="http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Evan_Schaeffer/Big_Splash/Evan_Schaeffer_-_09_-_Sisyphus">"Sisyphus"</a>).
