Legal Inversions: Lesbians, Gay Men, and the Politics of the Law

Etukansi
Didi Herman, Carl Franklin Stychin
Temple University Press, 1995 - 272 sivua
Law reform struggles have always been a part of the grassroots lesbian and gay agenda. These critical essays examine the politics of these engagements, of lesbians, gay men, and the law in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. From a wide range of perspectives, the contributors combine new conceptual insights with a concern for the practicalities of political engagements, tackling such vital topics as legal definitions of homosexuality, AIDS activism, and race and sexuality.
