The author talks about the role of beer in advocating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in the workplace. She notes that sharing a beer with other union members who are not aware of LGBT issues leads to a social change in which relationships are made and people are influenced. She adds that once union members realize that LGBT workers share the same concerns as theirs, they will start to regard LGBT rights as worker rights and not special rights. She stresses that social equality starts in the community.
