"Vi har nog färre lesbiska relationer på scen än vad det finns i verkligheten"
En undersökning om lesbisk representation i svensk barn- och ungdomsscenkonst
Summary, in English
Some space is given to a discussion about identity and representation, and the idea of identity as essential and natural is rebuked through queer theory and other identity theories.
Results showed that lesbians are a marginalized group in this context, and furthermore that it is of importance to a young audience to be represented and seen. The conclusion is divided; for some theatres affirmative action might be necessary to open up the stage to minority groups, for others the concepts of groups and defined sexual identities are a step backwards instead of forwards and a performative approach to gender and sexuality is of more use.
