Homo- and bisexual teachers’ ways of relating to the heteronorm

Abstract [en]

Although legislation has made achievements to strengthen  the rights of  homosexual people in many European countries, the school setting seems to be a place where it can be  hard to be  open as a homosexual person. This  article presents articulations of what it is to be  homo- or  bisexual as  a teacher, based on  a discourse analysis. The  empirical material suggests  two  different  discursive  approaches  described  as   vigilance  and  resource, suggesting  different realities of  these teachers. It  is  interpreted that it is  not enough only to rely on  laws and a positive mind-set of the general public. An explicit support from colleagues is suggested to be  crucial to facilitate this group’s prerequisites to participate equally compared to norm conforming colleagues.
