dc.description.abstract In this thesis I interview three Swedish-born or raised racialized gay and bisexual individuals. The purpose is to examine the interviewees' experiences of being racialized and gay/bisexual in Sweden, and how they handle their experiences on an individual level. To do so I use queer theory and Sara Ahmed's phenomenology. I find that whiteness plays a crucial role in the interviewees' lives. Due to a homonationalistic logic, the interviewees are often assumed to be heterosexual. At the same time, a homonationalistic logic leads them closer to whiteness and sometimes enables them to pass as white when “coming out” as gay or bisexual. Furthermore, I find that dating white can serve both as a protection against racism and generate benefits, while it also comes with a risk in form of racism, fear of racism or lack of support when exposed to racism. These experiences have led some of the interviewees to date mainly racialized people as a form of resistance. The thesis also shows that the interviewees often feel excluded in LGBTQ gatherings and places due to being racialized, but at the same time feel safe in relation to their sexuality. All interviewees raise antiracist organization as a way of handling the feeling of being out of place in white LGBTQ-contexts. en_US
