This chapter uses the framework developed in Chapter 3 to examine anti-gay hate crime laws. It considers the legal interventions that have been pursued by lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) activists and what, precisely, constitutes the discursive terrain that has been produced as a function of this pursuit. It asks: How does law take up claims made by these collective actors and transform them in ways that may be both empowering and limiting? What sorts of justificatory narratives and claims about sexuality, the body, and desire are “put into discourse” as a result of the claims advanced by LGB activists? How do the claims and arguments offered in response by opponents and adversaries divert, contextualize, and/or transform these discursive objects? In short, how does this set of processes produce a specific regime of sexual truth?

Keywords:   law, lesbians, gays, bisexual, sexuality
