How often do politicians come out forthrightly in support of gay rights? Drawing on more than 300 interviews with activists, politicians, officials legislative aides and journalists, David Rayside shows that gays, lesbians and their political issues are still on the fringe of the political mainstream. His study of political access demonstrates that, despite overall tempering of anti-gay rhetoric in the 1990s, opponents of equality are formidable and standing up for sexual minorities is still widely thought to be politically risky.
