Named "the godfather of gay sensitivity training" by The New York Times, Brian McNaught is the best-selling author of three watershed books on gay issues, and is the country's leading corporate diversity consultant dealing with gay issues in the workplace.
For over twenty five years, McNaught has drawn on personal experiences -- including a failed suicide attempt, coming out to his parents and co-workers, and being fired for being gay -- in order to help audiences understand what it's like to grow up gay in America. McNaught has addressed hundreds of professional and university audiences throughout North America, including those at Harvard, Vanderbilt, Indiana University, Holy Cross, Penn State, MIT, and UCLA.
He has also produced and/or is featured in five critically-acclaimed educational videos, On Being Gay, Gay Issues In The Workplace, Growing Up Gay and Lesbian, Homophobia In The Workplace, and Gay/Straight: Can We Talk? He is the author of Now That I'm Out, What Do I Do, Gay Issues In The Workplace and On Being Gay: Thoughts on Family, Faith, and Love, which is used as a college text on campuses throughout North America. He wrote a syndicated column in the gay press for 12 years and has contributed to numerous national publications. His work appears in six college texts and in several anthologies of gay/lesbian non-fiction literature.
In addition, he is the designer and presenter of two corporate workshops, "Understanding Gay Issues in the Workplace" and "Managing Gay Issues in the Workplace." McNaught educates managers and employees on gay issues at corporations such as Lucent Technologies, Chubb, Ford, J.P. Morgan,Dupont Pharmaceuticals, Hewlett-Packard, Motorola, and S.C. Johnson & Son. Public Broadcasting Stations regularly air his videos.
During the early 1980's, McNaught served as the Mayor of Boston's Liaison to the Gay and Lesbian community. As such, he conducted a citywide study of constituent needs, initiated and coordinated the city's response to the AIDS epidemic, and trained police, health and other service providers.
