Gabriele Magni

Assistant Professor of Political Science, Loyola Marymount University

Magni will examine the experiences of LGBTQ political candidates. He will draw on survey data, an original dataset of political candidates and district characteristics, archival materials covering political campaigns, and interviews with LGBTQ candidates and their staff to explore their decisions to run for office, the role that sexual orientation and gender identity play during their campaigns, the barriers they face, and election results.
