  Contributor Biography:  Randolph Baxter 
 
Randolph W. Baxter studied European History at the University of California, Berkeley and U. S. foreign policy and Third World security at Columbia University before completing his Ph.D. in History at the University of California, Irvine. His dissertation on "Eradicating This Menace": Homophobia and Anti-Communism in Congress, 1947-1954 is excerpted in "Homo-Hunting in the Early Cold War: Senator Kenneth Wherry and the Homophobic Side of McCarthyism" in Nebraska History. Baxter participated in "ex-gay" Christian ministries from 1983 to 1988, and since 1993 has been active in Evangelicals Concerned with Reconciliation, a glbtq Christian organization.

Entries by Randolph Baxter

social sciences >> Cohn, Roy

A homosexual from a liberal background, Roy Cohn can be seen as a deeply twisted, complicit victim of the anti-liberal, homophobic ideology of his era that he thoroughly internalized.

social sciences >> Reparative Therapy

Reparative therapy is a dangerously misguided attempt, supported by homophobic religious organizations, to change a person's sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual.
