All too often, gays and lesbians are not accepted by the criminal justice community because of their sexual orientation, and because they are criminal justice personnel, they are not accepted by lesbians and gay men. Written by a past liaison between the Miami Beach Police Department and the lesbian, gay and bisexual community, A Matter of Justice highlights the paradoxes and difficulties faced by these men and women. It portrays the diversity and similarities of their experiences and shares their experiences within the criminal justice community as well as within the lesbian and gay community.
