Taking law reform beyond the traditional confines of decriminalization, this text explores issues in sexuality, gender and the law, using examples from continental Europe to the southern hemisphere. It aims to open new perspectives on the way lesbians, gays and transexuals are represented in society.;The book features contributions from legal scholars and practitioners who explore the complexity of the interface between perversity and legal regulation. It addresses many taboo matters such as sexuality and childhood, bringing together the experiences of sexual minorities in other countries. It also draws attention to the potential for change and to problems of legal reform in this area.
