Should You Come Out On Your Resume?

“You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who would recommend putting “I’m a lesbian — like it or lump it” in script at the top of your resume. However, the right way to out yourself to a potential employer is up for debate,” says Barbara Dozetos, Monster Contributing Writer.

Dozetos explores different sides of this debate in her article “Should You Come Out On Your Resume?” Some feel one’s sexuality should be revealed prior to a job offer being made because they want to know if they’ll potentially be working for a non-gay-friendly employer, while others liken this information to marital status and religion, both of which are illegal topics for employers to inquire about during an interview.

What side of the debate do you fall on, or are you on the fence?
