Abstract [en]

Drawing on data from qualitative interviews with ten homo- or bisexual female athletes, the aim of the study was to investigate how norms connected to gender and sexuality were produced and reproduces in six team sports within the Swedish sports movements. Central questions were: What experiences do homo- or bisexual women have of everyday sporting activities? How are norms on sex and sexuality visible? Are these norms ever challenged? The results indicate that heteronormative discourses mainly are confirmed in everyday activities. The structure of sports, with its clear division between women and men and its strong connection to masculinity, seems to result either in a positive or a negative environment for homo- or bisexual female athletes. On the one hand sport was characterized by strict norms on sex and sexuality, homophobic tendencies, discrimination and insulting behaviours, and on the other hand it was experienced as a free zone, where norms on sex and sexuality were challenged and less firm than in society at large.
