HBT + christian = love : A study of HBT people's experience of living in the Christian contex (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie var att försöka få en inblick i hur det är att leva i den komplexa kontexten i att ha en hbt (homo-bi-trans) läggning och att vara kristen. Vi ville på individnivå försöka tolka och förstå genom ett queerteoretiskt perspektiv. Vi har gjort en kvalitativ studie som baseras på sex halvstrukturerade intervjuer. Vidare ligger studiens fokus på personer som har ett aktivt liv inom den kristna kontexten. De begrepp som genomsyrar hela studien är heteronormativitet, hbt och stigmatisering. Analysen är baserad på en analysmodell som heter Interpretative phenomenological analysis och bygger på att lyfta fram teman. Totalt lyfter vi fram sju teman som går under namnen; Socialt rum, Personligt rum, Anpassning, Tyst konsensus, Diskriminering, Erkännande och Framtid. I varje tema lyfts intervjupersonernas egna upplevelser fram genom citat som sen knyts an till vald teori och begrepp. Slutsatser man kan dra av analysen är att det är en komplex miljö som dock börjar bli mer inkluderande för hbt personer. Det komplexa ligger i att olika kristna församlingar ser olika på dessa frågor och det finns ingen klar gemensam hållning. Detta ger olika grader på positiva och negativa sidor med en hbt läggning i den kristna kontexten.

Abstract [en]

The aim with this study was to try getting an insight in how it is to live in the complex context in having it hbt (homo-bi-transsexual) disposition and to be Christian. We wanted on an individual level try to interpret and to understand through a queertheoretical perspective. We have done a qualitative study that we have based on 6st semi-structured interviews. Furthermore, the study's focus lies on persons who have an active life within the Christian context. The concepts that inform the entire study are heteronormativity, hbt and stigma. The analysis is based on an analysis model that is called Interpretative phenomenological analysis, and builds on lifting forward themes. A total of seven themes are lifted and they go by the names; Social rooms, Personal rooms, Adaptation, Quiet consensus, Discrimination, Admission and Future. In each theme, the interview persons' own experiences are lifted forward through quotations and are linked to our selected theory and concepts. Conclusions one can deduct of the analysis, is that it is a complex environment that however begins to become more including for hbt persons. The complex lies in that differently Christian parishes see differently on these questions and there is no clear common attitude. This gives various degrees on positive and negative sides with an hbt disposition in the Christian context.
