Abstract:

"American regulation of sexual variation has been responsive to multiple anxieties - about disgusting acts, gender deviation, and predatory sexuality. Gaylaw authoritatively shows how such legal regulation has evolved in the United States throughout the last century, contributing to the construction of homosexuality as a totalizing identity trait and to the phenomenon of the closet, initially a hiding place for gay people, now best viewed as an exclusion from citizenship." "Gaylaw not only questions the remnants of the old regime of compulsory heterosexuality, but offers ideas about public law in a post-closet, indeed post-liberal, era."--Jacket.
