Gawker's reporting that a freelance photographer at the NY Times is saying that the editor of photography called him a faggot. The editor denies it, of course, and an investigation by the Times (you'd think they'd be good at that sort of thing) resulted in a letter being put in the editor's file.
Of course, this is all hear-say, and the Post is reporting, and I'd trust them on a story that makes the Times look bad about as far as I could throw them. But Gawker says that they have emails from other employees that confirm.
Since I do a lot of freelance and contract work, I know that there really isn't a reason for a freelancer to make something like this up. I lost one such job several years ago because I complained about rampant anti-gay harassment on the job and another directly because of my sexuality (the latter was in a state with an anti-discrimination law, but try to prove not that you lost your job because of your sexuality, but a temporary contract, without that proverbial "I hate fags" letter signed by your employer).
So question: Have you ever faced unjust harassment on the job? Did management try to solve it?
