Abstract [en]

Our thesis investigates labour market outcomes differentials between gay, lesbians and heterosexuals in France. Data comes from an online anonymous survey that we made and spread by ourselves and that identifies sexual orientation by directly asking the question to respondents. We also study perceived discrimination according to sexual orientation. What we add to the previous literature is a link between quantitative results on earnings and employment differentials, and perceived discrimination. We also interested ourselves in the extent to which people disclose their sexual orientation at work, and how this can affect the labour market outcomes of individuals. The main results of our survey are in line with previous literature: there is a 23.7% negative gap on male homosexual wage, and a 26.3% negative gap on female homosexual wage. Nevertheless, when looking at perceived discrimination, it occurs that respondents in the survey are aware and against such discrimination.  Moreover, we found that on average, disclosing sexual orientation at work should have a positive impact on the wage and affects the earnings differentials between homosexuals and heterosexuals, but deepens the earnings gap among heterosexual and homosexual females.
