Abstract

Recent surveys showing LGBT professionals’ heightened experience of homophobia on building site visits can be considered in the context of a growing body of literature on the gender and sexual identity in construction work. This analysis offers a theoretical perspective on the practical issues, examining the embodied nature of professionalism and the performative nature of the construction site visit: an instance where an intertwined personal/professional identity is on parade, confronting the dominant identities of the site, and thus itself challenged. The work draws on Goffman’s theories of social interaction and the works of Bourdieu on the nature of practice.

Keywordshomophobia, construction site, professional identity, habitus, Goffman.
