The aim of this book is to communicate to mainstream public administration students, practitioners, and academicians the growth of the subfield of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender public administrative theory and practice over the past few years. The era from the Stonewall rights revolution to the present involves a transformation from marginalized activity to mainstream public administrative practice not only in the United States and Canada, but also within Australia and the European Community.
Even in countries where marginalized activity is still the rule, significant progress is being made.
The objective of the book is to communicate to administrators, students, and scholars that a paradigm shift has occurred, wherein a previously insignificant social movement has changed to a mainstream set of values that are being rapidly incorporated into governmental practice around the world.
The values of tolerance of difference and willingness to accept a variety of sexual orientations are being incorporated into many governmental and nonprofit organizations at the same time that racial, ethnic, and religious diversity is being recognized and validated.
