This chapter uses the framework developed in Chapter 3 to examine same-sex marriage. Topics discussed include same-sex marriage litigation, the nature of marriage, and how same-sex marriage litigation strategies produce and partake of a self-governance project that not only confines unruly sexuality to binary sexual categories but also works to erase and disparage gayness itself.

Keywords: same-sex marriage; gay marriage; gays; self-governance
