Book News Annotation:

One of the country's leading scholars of gay and lesbian politics, Haider-Markel (political science, U. of Kansas) focuses on state legislative races and state policymaking to produce the first systematic analysis of how lesbian and gay candidates are faring in electoral politics, and how influential they have been in formulating policies that affect the LGBT community. The author suggests that it's becoming increasingly possible for gay and lesbian candidates to win elections, but that there are still places where success is unlikely. Haider-Markel argues that, even with the risk of backlash, larger numbers of lesbian and gay legislators make the passage of beneficial legislation more likely. Thought-provoking and quite readable, this volume should be on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the role of gay men and lesbians in electoral politics.

Synopsis:

Out and Running is the first systematic analysis of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) political representation that explores the dynamics of state legislative campaigns and the influence of lesbian and gay legislators in the state policymaking process. By examining state legislative elections from 1992 to 2006 and state policymaking from 1992 to 2009, Donald Haider-Markel suggests that the LGBT community can overcome hurdles and win elections; and, once in office, these officials can play a critical role in the policy representation of the community.

However, he also discovers that there are limits to where and when LGBT candidates can run for office and that, while their presence in office often enhances policy representation, it can also create backlash.
