A Look At Idaho's Historic Laws Used To Target The LGBTQ Community

Feb 1, 2021

Idaho Matters shares a two-part series from Boise State Public Radio reporter James Dawson, tracing the long history of its continued enforcement of a law deemed unconstitutional nearly 20 years ago.

The State of Idaho is facing a lawsuit over its continued enforcement of these so-called “crimes against nature” laws. The law in question has deep roots here, and across the country.

The ACLU of Idaho filed the suit last year on behalf of two men convicted under the law, or one similar to it in another state who want to scrub it from state code entirely.
