Written by activists and legal advocates Mogul, Ritchie, and Whitlock, this work examines the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people within the contemporary US criminal legal system, particularly focusing on how other class, race, occupational, gender, immigrant, and other status marginalities interact with LGBT as a category in US crime and punishment. They argue that the way that the criminal legal system polices notions of sexual and gender "deviance" serves both as a tool of race-based law enforcement and as an independent basis for punishment within an institutionalized setting of systemic violence and injustice. Chapters address historical precedents, queer criminal archetypes, policing gender and sex after Stonewall, treatment of queers in criminal courts, queer experiences in prison, criminal legal responses to violence against LGBT people, and responses to the problem of criminal injustice towards LGBT people.
