This chapter provides a sociologically informed historical analysis of applications made under the European Convention on Human Rights against the UK concerning discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. It focuses on sixty-three cases against the UK that originated in individual applications submitted to the Strasbourg organs between 1972 and 2010. The key aim of this chapter is to elucidate the socio-legal context of applications against the UK about sexual orientation discrimination, the jurisprudence that the Strasbourg organs have developed as a result of these applications, and the effect of this jurisprudence on the legal landscape of the UK.
