Chasing Queers: The Radicalism of Conservative Legal Attacks on Lesbians and Gay Men
ExpressO (2008)

Abstract

This article explores efforts by conservative activists to use preposterous legal arguments as the basis for their on-going efforts to attack the legal rights of lesbians and gay men. Individually, these cases are easy to overlook, partly because most of them are state cases. Also, one does not usually think of the legal issues involved -- standing, intervention, full faith and credit -- as civil rights issues. This article draws attention to these cases in order to illuminate the similarities among them in terms of conservative attacks on lesbians and gay men.
