Abstract [en]

Abstract: It has been put on the spotlight and a known fact in Sweden, individuals who live in different honor cultures are exposed to different types of honor oppression. However, there is still very little information about HBT-individuals who live in an honor culture environment and are exposed to honor oppression. The purpose of this study is to create a profound understanding in the HBT-individuals’ experiences with honor and their experiences with identity as HBT-individuals in relation to the honor culture they live in. The study also looks at the possibilities and limitations these individuals mustface every day or at certain times as HBT-individuals in an honor environment. A qualitative method was used throughout the study and the empirical material is based on interviews we made with seven informers. We have used two different interview methods to receive empirical results. The first method is based on a face-to-face interview and the second method is based on chat interviews online. The analysis was examined along the theoretical efforts we used throughout this study such as, social control, honor culture, identity and many more. The results indicate that these informants are at a higher risk of being exposed to different things, such as for example being rejected by their family if they chose to come out and live openly about their sexual identity and not follow the hetero norm that is put in place.
