Abstract [sv]

The aim of this paper is to examine how users of Grindr are experiencing and creating gender, ethnicity and race on the application. I interviewed six cis-male between the ages of 20-30 who were active on Grindr. I based my interviews and study on José Esteban Munoz theory on Queer and Queer Temporalities, Raewyn Connells theory on hegemonic masculinity and Sara Ahmeds theory on postcolonial feminism. I interviewed them about fetishisations connected to gender and the creating of masculinity on Grindr and how the construction of the application affect users and the way that they act on it. I also interviewed them about gender and the creating of masculinity connected to thoughts about anti-effeminacy. My informants expressed an ambivalence attitude towards Grindr, all of my informants talked about Grindr as a place to connect with other people and at the same time they talked about experiences of racism and femmephobia on Grindr.
