Abstract

The concept of human dignity is encountered with increased frequency in the context of gay rights and in particular marriage equality. Throughout legal orders, human dignity has emerged as a justificatory tool for bringing about gay rights—either through adjudication or legislation—and this in the absence of a fixed content of dignity in juridical application in most domestic legal orders. I attempt to understand this intriguing phenomenon by examining it in comparative perspective.
