“Joanna’s commitment to an intersectional analysis and to focussing on the real-world impact of law on people’s lives helps make this book an exceptional resource. ... The text belongs on the bookshelf of every lawyer who seeks to provide culturally competent service, with the leading practitioners in LGBTQ2+ law sharing substantive and practical guidance.”
“Reading this book it is hard not to feel pride in what Canada as a country has accomplished in all areas of LGBTQ2+ legal issues (including family law), and that much of this has been done over just a few short decades, with many of the book’s authors leading the way.”
"The various contributors have adopted a writing style that makes the content accessible not only to students and teachers of law, but also to those engaged in history, gender, or sexuality studies, among other disciplines."

Issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity impact almost all areas of legal practice. Members of the LGBTQ2+ community face unique hurdles, especially in areas of family, immigration, estates, and criminal law. LGBTQ2+ Law: Practice Issues and Analysis is the first text of its kind, offering a practical treatment of these specific challenges within a variety of legal contexts.
Beginning with a foreword by Kathleen Wynne, the first openly LGBTQ2+ premier in Canada, this text draws on the expertise and experience of a diverse author team to provide practitioners with a deep understanding of how their clients’ identities affect their interactions with the Canadian legal landscape.
