Included in this new volume is Joshua Hepple’s Will Sexual Minorities Ever Be Equal? The Repercussions of British Colonial ?Sodomy? Laws


This paper discusses the development of equal rights for sexual minorities by examining homosexuality and the law. By looking in depth at the origins of “sodomy” laws we can understand the way in which discrimination against, and persecution of homosexuals has been justified, and why many countries – in recent years – have, and have not, repealed such laws and promoted equal rights for lesbians, gays and bisexuals (LGB).
