Abstract and Keywords

This chapter argues that the critical organizational scholarship on men and masculinities is heteronormative in its tendency to normalize white, middle-class, heterosexual, able-bodied gender norms. If it is to avoid accusations of complicity in reproducing heteronormative analyses of men and masculinities, the field itself must acknowledge and address its omissions. This chapter identifies some of those missing men and masculinities by drawing on the sexuality of organization scholarship, focusing specifically on gay and bisexual men. As such, the principal aim of this chapter is to engage in a process of queering organizational men and masculinities, with a view to engendering dialogues between organizational scholars interested in men and masculinities and those scholars involved in examining gay and bi sexualities at work. Introducing and mobilizing queer theories, this chapter seeks to furnish researchers with insights into how heteronormativities and the organizational lives of all men and women influence each other.

Keywords: gay and bisexual men, organizational masculinities, queer theory
