Description

Sexual Orientation and Identity: Political and Legal Analysis provides a comprehensive understanding of the status of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender Americans today. The book engages students directly with important decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court and other courts to trace the development of rights pertaining to sexual orientation and identity, providing extended discussion of LGBT youth and schools; freedom of speech and expression; employment; discrimination; and marriage and family. The book emphasizes the important interface between law and the democratic political process in expanding the equality of the LGBT community.
