Invisible Men

Robinson, Paul
June 1978
New Republic;6/3/78, Vol. 178 Issue 22, p9
The article presents the author's views on laws concerning the protection of rights of homosexuals in the U.S. These laws were the ordinances that protect gays from job discrimination, housing and public accommodations. African Americans and women have experienced discrimination as of many minorities. But the attack on the legislation is no more mysterious than the legislation itself. Homosexuals are invisible in terms of the rights which are supposedly protected in various statutes. Gays sought legal visibility in terms of their roles in society.
