Zingo examines the conflicts inherent in restricting hate
speech--the controversial speech codes--and freedom of expression
as it affects the lives and rights of gay men and lesbians. While
much has been written on speech code restrictions having to do with
race and gender, both in the press and academic literature, few
scholars or serious writers before Zingo have focused on the
necessity and/or sagacity of instituting legal sanctions on hate
speech based on sexual orientation/preference.
After providing an overview of the social and legal condition of
outsiders, Zingo examines how the law has evolved on the issues of
free speech, equality jurisprudence, and the hate speech
controversy. She then analyzes these issues in the context of
sexual identity, equality, and non-discrimination and concludes
with a review of the Supreme Court's rulings on hate speech
regulation. Throughout she discusses the extent to which such
speech codes adequately protect lesbians and gay men in American
society. A major study for students and scholars of Constitutional
Law and policymakers and others concerned with gay and lesbian
issues and free speech.
