The two judgments of Laurie Ackermann in the first and second National Coalition cases are in many respects remarkable documents. They engage in an intellectually rigorous and sometimes provocative way with the question of sexual-orientation discrimination and extend legal protection for many individuals who experience same-sex sexual and emotional desire. The judgments also pose significant questions about the way in which the law can and should deal with sexual identity and questions traditional notions of a fixed homosexual identity - particularly in the South African context.
