Discrimination perçue au travail et stratégies identitaires mises en place par les jeunes recrues d’orientation sexuelle minoritaire

Abstract : The social visibility of LGB (Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual) minorities has grown substantially in France during the last two decades. In spite of this visibility, discrimination and stigmatisation based on sexual orientation have remained significant in the professional sphere. The goal of this article is to present strategies to introduce oneself among recently employed young people from sexual minorities. In the framework of this qualitative study, twelve young homosexual and bisexual salaried employees recently integrated into the professional realms of law and transportation — either as managers or not — are questioned. The results underline that on the one hand, as soon as one enters into a new organization, different strategies of self-presentation are put in place by workers who self-identify as homosexual or bisexual. On the other hand, dissimulating one's sexual orientation remains, among these strategies of self presentation, the most frequent to confront expected discrimination and homophobia in the work environment.
