    Abstract

    This article considers how the influence of the early Christian church in Europe led to the legal framework in which LGBT people could be persecuted. It then considers the response of European nations to the Nazi genocide of World War II, and how this led to the development of two parallel jurisdictions in Europe, one economic, one based in Human Rights. The article then considers how the features of these two jurisdictions have contributed to the development of a legal framework in which LGBT rights can now be increasingly recognised within the law, and asks whether this has led to a process of normative and ethical law in which LGBT rights are natural and given.
