Abstract

This annotated bibliography is published at 19 Yale Journal of Law and Feminism 449 (2008). It is a comprehensive collection of law review articles, and selected other materials, relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and questioning youth. These "queer kids" - minors between the ages of ten and twenty who are perceived as being gender or sexuality nonconforming - are the most endangered and underserved adolescent population in the United States. They face danger in their homes, schools, and the juvenile justice system. Their ability to protect themselves is compromised by discrimination and by their status as minors. Intended as a resource for scholars, policymakers, and practitioners, this bibliography collects, discusses, and organizes legal scholarship, selected reports and studies, and influential personal narratives from queer kids.
