Abstract [en]

This study aims at investigating gender, gender interaction and sexuality among homosexual women with Assyrian belonging. The focus has been on describing their experiences of being homosexuals as well as the difficulties they face from an intersectional perspective.The result portrays that in the research and among the respondents there is generally a cultured image of heteronorms that cannot be deviated. Individuals who deviate from cultural norms are considered abnormal. The respondents suggests that her sexual orientation is limited to her from an intersectional perspective because homosexuality is invisible in gender-gender interactions and sexuality where there are also different power relationships. The challenges experienced by respondents were the implementation of the cultural norm in society as well as intersectionality overriding and subordination maintained in interplay between sex and sexuality in their daily lives. Consequently the respondents lives in different roles to avoid losing contact with relatives and avoiding the hegemony of society.
