The Queer Judgments Project (QJP) is an initiative that evolved from disparate conversations between the current co-editors about how legal judgments related to sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) could have been written in more appropriate terms in light of the legal framework at the time. We wanted to cultivate a project that brought together friends, colleagues, and activists who were interested in improving and challenging the law and its application to make life better for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and other (LGBTIQ+) people and communities.
The main aim of the project is to re-imagine, re-write and re-invent, from queer and other complementing perspectives, judgments that have considered SOGIESC issues. The project has an international reach and multi-disciplinary scope. Individual contributors are free to choose which judgment they want to focus on, featuring voices from across the globe. Similarly, the audience for the outputs of our project includes people outside of academia, especially marginalised communities, and young people.
