Abstract: I interrogate the idea of legal justice that informs LGBT and women’s international human rights interventions. I reveal the governing sexual, gender and cultural norms that limit the capacities of legal justice in relation to precarious desires and explore alternative registers of justice including in feminist affect theory as well as postcolonial approaches that exceed the confinements of liberal legality.
