IN THIS SUMMARY

John Browne was the chief executive at BP when he was forced out of the closet by the national press. His ex-boyfriend sold their story for a large sum of money, and despite being a successful and respected executive, Browne resigned from his position and the company. To him, there was no other solution. He believed that his sexual orientation would prevent potential business partners from giving him the same respect they did when he was in the closet. In The Glass Closet, Browne recounts his personal story and uses stories from other LGBT professionals to paint a picture of what it is like to be gay in the workplace. He uses statistics, interviews, and personal reflections to show that being out in the workplace is not only good for individuals, it is good for business.
