Queer (In)Justice : The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States
by Joey Mogul and Andrea Ritchie and Kay Whitlock




Overview -
A groundbreaking work that turns a "queer eye" on the criminal legal system

Drawing on years of research, activism, and legal advocacy, Queer (In)Justice is a searing examination of queer experiences as suspects, defendants, prisoners, and survivors of crime. The authors unpack queer criminal archetypes--from gleeful gay killers" and lethal lesbians to disease spreaders and deceptive gender benders--to illustrate the punishment of queer expression, regardless of whether a crime was ever committed. Tracing stories from the streets to the bench to behind prison bars, the authors prove that the policing of sex and gender both bolsters and reinforces racial and gender inequalities.

An eye-opening study of LGBTQ rights and equality, Queer (In)Justice illuminates and challenges the many ways in which queer lives are criminalized, policed, and punished.
