Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för globala studier

Sammanfattning: It has often been said that a society can be judged by how it treats its weakest.Gothenburg is a city divided, in terms of socioeconomic inequalites. The city seeks tobe "a city for all" and has therefore launched an action plan to better the lives of itsLGBTQ-citizens. The aim of this study is to investigate how gay men with multipleminority identities, living in Gothenburg, feel that their norm breaking identitiesaffect the way they interact and behave within the city, and also to identify whichfactors that can hinder or enable such participation by examining how the right to thecity is being claimed in order to aid the city in its work towards social sustainability.Five semi structured interviews were performed and then analysed using anintersectional approach. Participants described encountering stigmas surrounding theirnorm breaking identities, which in some cases led to negative social responses whencoming out. Certain parts of the city were, by some, deemed unsafe. The degree ofcompatibility between the participants' own identities varied. Heteronormative,hegemonic structures were found to be the main hindering factors in regards toclaiming the right to the city, whereas social support from friends and family, andhigh self-esteem were the main enablers. Adding to the city's action plan, providingsafe venues for homosexuals and working towards changing norms and attitudes werethe main suggestions for bettering social sustainability issues relating to gay men withmultiple minority identities in Gothenburg.
