Abstract [en]

This paper is based on a research project studying political discussions in the Swedish LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-, Transsexual) community Qruiser. The aim is to understand what motivated participation in Qruiser political forum threads. The research is nethnographic through online interviews, participant observations in, and content analyses of, political discussions threads during November 2012. By using framing theory as an analytical tool, the paper seeks to answer which frames attracted and mobilized participation and how this was done. The paper finds that particularly frames of the left vs the right and the xenophobic vs the political correct motivated participation together with a general game frame.
