Kevin Nadal is a professor of psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and The Graduate Center, CUNY. He is one of the leading researchers on the effect of microaggressions, or subtle forms of discrimination, on the mental and physical health of people of color; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people; and members of other marginalized groups. He joins the The Thought Project podcast to discuss his new book, Queering Law and Order: LGBTQ Communities and the Criminal Justice System. In this episode, he talks about the systemic discrimination LGBTQ people face, which pushes many of them to the margins of society. A large proportion of homeless youth in New York, for example, are LGBTQ. Often struggling to get by, members of the LGBTQ community are doubly punished by a law enforcement system that treats them like criminals rather than helps them as victims.
