Article: Gays Can Also Harbor Prejudice

Gary Bailey

You might think gays are not as prejudiced because they continue to face discrimination. That is not so, according to former National Association of Social Workers president Gary Bailey.

Bailey, who is now president of the International Federation of Social Workers and teaches at the Simmons College School of Social Work in Boston, was quoted extensively in this EDGE article about racism and other forms of discrimination in the gay community.

Bailey is an expert on racism and openly gay. “People who are oppressed are not immune to oppressing and having feelings that would allow them to discriminate against other people,” he said.

NASW supports equal treatment for all, including members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community. To find out more click here to visit the association’s Diversity and Equity Web page.
