During the past fifty years, legal issues arising from the sexual diversity of our society have moved front and center in many fields, including constitutional law, domestic relations, employment law, and civil rights law. This book provides the basis for a survey course about how lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgendered persons, and others whose sexual expression differs from the majoritarian norm confront the law, and how the law responds to them. Although the focus is on United States law, references are made at appropriate points to legal developments in other countries. The book also provides textual background for students who have not completed a basic course in constitutional law, making it usable for an elective course in any part of the law school curriculum.
The first edition of this casebook, published shortly after the Lawrence and Goodridge cases had begun a revolution in American law relating to sexual minorities, is now revised and expanded to incorporate the important developments flowing from those decisions and bring the story up to date for the second decade of the 21st century.
