Outing in Politics
The Debate section in our Eaklor reading for today says that in 1992 "the topic of outing seemed to fade quickly. It was taken up in another form by academics..." implying that the issue has faded from mainstream attention or political relevance (Eaklor, 193). However, the film Outrage from 2009 describes an activist who continues to work to out those whom Eaklor calls "the worst offenders (gay congressmen voting against gay rights)."
