This paper will discuss the use of the word "tolerance", in the contexts of understanding the history of sexuality, and how it is enmeshed with constructs of deviance. This paper will argue that while some state-level changes are being made with respect to the human rights of gays and lesbians, micro-social backlash continues to flourish. The ongoing struggle for equality and recognition for and of gays and lesbians is lodged in-between the legal and the moral codes of dominant society in such a way that while legal rights are implemented, moral panic is rising in relation to the changes being instituted.
