Sexualities: Sexualities and the Law

I normally post the table of contents for Sexualities when a new issue is released but this month is a little bit special as the June issue was edited by me. Although a bit of a nightmare (and so many lessons learnt!), the final issue pulls together (if I may so so) a really interesting selection of work from the US, UK, Australia and Spain. It shows the breadth of law and sexuality scholarship in a field that is rapidly developing. Contents are listed below and abstract details etc can be viewed on the journal website here. You can read my extended editorial for free on the journal website here. I'd really appreciate any feedback on the issue.
