Winner of the 2011 PASS (Prevention for a Safer Society) Award from the National Council on Crime and Delinquency
A groundbreaking work that turns a queer eye on the criminal legal system, "Queer (In)Justice" is a searing examination of queer experiences as suspects, defendants, prisoners, and survivors of crime. The authors unpack queer criminal archetypes like gleeful gay killers, lethal lesbians, 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, they prove that the policing of sex and gender both bolsters and reinforces racial and gender inequalities."
