Gaga Feminism is a roadmap to sex and gender for the twenty-first century, using Lady Gaga as a symbol for a new kind of feminism.
“Jack Halberstam—the king of feminism—has managed to make sense of pregnant men, Lady Gaga, gay marriage, and the advent of the bromance in this provocative and pleasurable romp through contemporary gender politics. Gaga Feminism is as fun as it is illuminating.” —Ariel Levy, author of Female Chauvinist Pigs and staff writer at the New Yorker
Queer (In)Justice is a groundbreaking work that turns a “queer eye” on the criminal legal system.
“If you think the struggle for LGBT equality is only about marriage and the military, Queer (In)Justice will be a revelation. In lucid prose, it tells stories of criminalization, victimization, and discrimination, while illuminating strategies for progressive change. A must-read for anyone who cares about justice.” —Ruthann Robson, author of Lesbian (Out)Law
From the Closet to the Courtroom is an engaging and largely untold–how five landmark lawsuits have altered LGBT history.
“Ball revels in a handful of important legal victories, while also delving deeply into the personal stories of each case, resulting in a richly textured account that is part history book, part colorful reportage.” —Beth Greenfield, Time Out New York
Beyond (Straight and Gay) Marriage is a persuasive argument for why married couples, gay or straight, should not receive special rights denied to other families.
“Passionate but completely grounded in reality, Polikoff challenges LGBT rights advocates to see beyond gay equality arguments and question the fundamental fairness of limiting family recognition based on marriage, gay or straight. It is a powerful call for social justice.” —Nan D. Hunter, founder of the American Civil Liberties Union Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Project
