Ritchie & Mogul “Queer (In)Justice” (Reading)

I was so excited about the publication of Joey Mogul, Andrea Ritchie, and Kay Whitlock’s book Queer (In)Justice: The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States that I pre-ordered it for my library months in advance.  It’s about time that some seriously scholarly attention was given to the historical plight of queers in the U.S. legal system.

While browsing Bluestockings bookstore’s events calendar yesterday I saw that Mogul and Ritchie will be speaking (for free) there this Sunday at 5PM. Here’s the description from their website:

Join co-authors Andrea Ritchie and Joey Mogul for a reading and discussion (at 5PM) of “Queer (In)Justice: The Criminalization of LGBT People in the United States,” a searing examination of queer folks as suspects, defendants, prisoners, and survivors of crime. Tracing stories from the streets to behind prison bars, this new book illuminates how queer lives are criminalized and how the policing of sex and gender is used to bolster racial and gender inequalities.
