“Although there is no hard, fast rule for general masculinity, there are lots of anxieties related to identity management and self-presentation for gay men in many professional settings,” says Travis Dean Speice, recent sociology doctoral graduate at the University of Cincinnati. “From the initial interview to moving up the ladder at work, if a gay man feels his supervisors don’t agree with a gay population, he may not want to reveal his sexuality to them. “Instead, he may test the waters with a variety of strategies, including managing the way he dresses, the way he talks and whether or not he decides to disclose his sexuality to the people at work.” viewHiding in Plain Sight Speice explains these strategies for avoiding scrutiny using a concept he termed “hegemonic sexuality” — a tool he uses to understand how gay men are positioned hierarchically within society — where some men are labeled “too gay,” while others are more acceptable. Speice says his respondents refer to the label “too gay” as various speech patterns, body language and clothing choices they feel do not fit into an idealized form of hegemonic masculinity, or other commonly known masculine behaviors. Instead, these characteristics often follow common stereotypes of gay men. Men then have the choice to perform masculinity and gayness in any number of ways, with some men attempting to perform a more traditional masculine version of themselves at work. “This happens when they don’t feel safe being themselves around certain supervisors or co-workers,” says Speice. “While many gay men have careers where they are respected and accepted for being themselves, several others feel that they have to hide, modify or conceal their behavioral characteristics and speak, act and dress more “professionally.” But he posits that “professionally” is often a subconscious euphemism for behaving more masculine.” Speice presented the analysis of these strategies in August titled “(Gay) Men at Work: Understanding Gendered and Sexual Identity Management Strategies in the Workplace,” in Seattle at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Section on the Sociology of Sexualities. Speice addresses three critical areas where gay men manage their identity in the workplace: Dress and language/communication Deciding whether and how to “come out” How hegemonic masculinity and hegemonic sexuality exist in the workplace under the facade of what the men refer to as “professionalism” Dressed to Chill Throughout the study, Speice uncovers a unique subconscious component to his respondents’ strategies for how they manage their identity, including what they wear. “One man, a social worker, felt proud wearing his burnt orange khakis to work one morning until he had to visit the corrections institute later that day and noticed the inmates staring at him,” says Speice.

If it feels like a prepared and scripted response, that is a sign that theyre either lying or not telling you the whole story.” Check their speed. “Take note of how quickly they answer a question. Did they immediately respond without giving much thought? Think about a teenager standing in front of his parents. If the parents ask him a question and the kid immediately launches into an answer without thinking, he prepared. He had a story ready to go for you, Mom and Dad.” Have a second set of eyes and ears. “When possible, have another observer in the room. Have someone pretending to be an assistant sitting off to the side working on a laptop, or someone pretending to be an IT person. Your interview subject will quickly forget that they are in the room. That gives you another set of eyes paying attention strictly to this persons mannerisms, someone who can help you catch changes that you might have missed.
