Summary

The French Republic does not discriminate or differentiate between individuals in terms of gender, difference or ethnicity. However recent legislation has enshrined the rights of gays and lesbians and it is this legislation that has inspired the author to examine the unique relationship between the Republic and its citizens - in this case gay and lesbian citizens. The author assesses the impact the new legislation has had on France as a democratic, multicultural republic founded on equality of citizenship, and on the lesbian and gay community, caught between inclusion and exclusion. The book combines approaches from sociology, political science, legal studies, cultural studies and the study of gender and sexuality, and will appeal to academics and postgraduates in these fields.
