This annotated bibliography is meant to be an overview of my research towards a paper on same sex marriage. It evaluates four pieces of literature that I have chosen to use as external sources for my paper, providing a summary of the text and an argument for its relevancy: Case and Stewart’s (2009) study “Heterosexual Privilege Awareness, Prejudice, and Support of Gay Marriage Among Diversity Course Students,” Nussbaum’s (2010) article “A right to marry?”, Mills’ (2009) editorial “It’s time to allow gay marriage in Australia,” and Australian Marriage Equality’s (2011) article “The Case for Marriage.” In my paper, I aim to use these sources to point out the logical fallacies in the arguments against gay marriage, as well as push for tolerance courses and diversity education as the key to addressing this systemic issue. Only then can the social attitudes regarding gays and lesbians ease up to the point where the case for marriage will no longer be so strongly opposed.

Thesis Proposal on Lesbianism and Identity Politics During the Feminist Movement
A number of social and political movements were emerging in the second half of the twentieth century due to the long oppressions and injustice. The feminist movement was one of these movements which stimulated women get their rights and the right place in the society. New ideas and demands took place and women were in a hurry to enjoy all the rights, exploit all the enjoyments which were considered restricted to the men only. This paper discusses the Lesbianism, Identity of women and Politics during the feminist movement.
Term Paper on Sexual Orientation in Jail/Prison of the Gay, Lesbians, Transgender, or Bi Sexual
Though LGBT (Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) prisoners face challenges which other prisoners face, sexual orientation, prejudice and gender identity makes the challenges to be more difficult for them. Other human rights violations faced by LGBT persons include: physical and mental integrity rights, freedom of association and that of expression, laws that are discriminating and application of laws in a discriminatory manner (Forsyth et al, 2002). Though most of the unique challenges that LGBT prisoners face have not received extensive litigation, those that have already been litigated might receive a significant change, if the Supreme Court makes a decision that is relatively still. It becomes hard to make a prediction of the claims outcomes. The combination of the unpredictability, transphobia and homophobia may interfere with the decisions that juries and judges make, meaning that, when LGBT prisoners bring their claims in court, they face so many challenges (Kupers, 2010).
