Homo legalis: lesbian and gay in legal studies. Book synopsis: This timely book seeks to demonstrate the coherence of lesbian and gay studies. The gay and lesbian movement has emerged as a major political and cultural force. It poses a series of far reaching questions about the organization of identity, the operation of power and the limits of tolerance. Lesbian and Gay Studies has emerged as a vital and enriching field.

Proponents of social reform have always sought change through law reform. But what forces produce these new legal constructions, and how open is the law to reform? Didi Herman provides a critical analysis of lesbian and gay struggles for legal equality in Canada. She begins by exploring the historical development of 'sexual orientation' protection in human rights law and considers the strategies employed by lesbian and gay movements, by politicians, and by judges. Herman continues by placing recent campaigns within a broader theoretical framework which identifies legal arenas as sites of struggle between opposing social movements. An important focus of the book, therefore, is the New Christian Right - the key force opposing the extension of lesbian and gay rights. This section draws on original interviews with leading Christian activists.

Herman contends that we can neither uncritically extol nor derisively dismiss the strategies used by lesbians and gay men fighting for their rights. She argues that within these legal battles dominance has been achieved by a liberal 'minority rights paradigm.' This model itself becomes a mode of regulation, constructing sexuality in ways that may not be fully liberating. Yet traditional moralities have also been under siege and, to some extent, significant shifts in social understanding have occurred.

Although Rights of Passage is specifically about lesbian and gay rights, its analysis provides insights into the relationship between social movements and the legal process more generally. This book makes an important contribution to current debates in sociology, legal studies, and political theory.
