A project by SFQ
Ett projekt av Sveriges förenade HBTQIA+-studenter (SFQ)
This book is a part of SFQs ongoing work towards intersectionality and inclusiveness. It is even a protest against the growing right-wing extremism and racism in Sweden. This research used in-depth qualitative interviews with students to present a deeper intersectional understanding of how homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, racism, and similar forms of discrimination, are experienced and maintained within the social spaces that non-Swedish and/or non-white LGBTQIA+ people living in Sweden move within. From a critical feminist theories perspective, this book presents stories that show the intersectionality of the layers of struggles, discrimination, and violence that LGBTQIA+ people living in Sweden face. Finally, this book discusses a way forward and presents a critical reflection, with specific recommendations, on how to make safer and more inclusive spaces for the diverse LGBTQIA+ community in Sweden
