This issue of the LST Review is dedicated to the memory of Priyadarshini Thangarajah (1982-2015) – a researcher activist and lawyer. The issue focuses on the idea of approaching law and policy from a non normative – or ‘queer’ – perspective, and includes topics on a wide array of subjects. Vijay Nagaraj and Shermal Wijewardene’s essay is inspired by a conversation with Priya herself, and attempts to examine the use of queering for not merely engaging with the law but also for activist political engagement. In keeping with the spirit of the LST Review, the essay reflects on the way we engage with and think about the law through Priya’s perspectives and critiques.
