Outing: Shattering the Conspiracy of Silence
Here is the most complete book on outing--the exposure of closet homosexual cases in high places. Outing: Shattering the Conspiracy of Silence is the first historicist treatment of the intolerance of homosexuality in any language. Authors Johansson and Percy analyze the subject from the perspective of the shifting religious attitudes toward homosexual expression. They do not blithely parrot the “right to privacy,” but examine the dialectical meaning of privacy. This provocative book focuses on the irreconcilable opposition between the belief in privacy and the assumption of Christian theology that all homosexual activity is visible to the God whose wrath it provokes. The authors hold that outing is a legitimate tactic for reinforcing the identity and solidarity of the Queer Nation in its struggle for vindication and survival in the age of AIDS. And this book provides readers with a host of issues and definitions and stimulates ideas on outing:

I’m always leery when authors feel the need to list their scholastic degrees or other accreditations on the front cover since, almost always, the book falls short of my expectations. Unfortunately, this one is no exception: Outing: Shattering the Conspiracy of Silence reads as if Warren Johansson (M.A.) and William Percy (Ph.D.) are still before their respective dissertation committees defending their theses. Turgid prose and a tendency to belabour a point make getting through an otherwise well-researched history of this controversial practice a chore. If you’re interested in the politics and ethics of outing, pick up a copy of Michelangelo Signorile’s Queer in America instead.
