Abstract [en]

Framed in ideas of cultural citizenship and acknowledging the importance of popular cultural sites

for political participation, this short paper attends to a study of political discussions in the Swedish LGTB

community Qruiser. The research is netnographic through online interviews, participant observations and content analyses. Preliminary results suggest an atmosphere that is rather geared towards conflict and

dissent between participants than towards deliberation, opinion formation and consensus. The paper will

therefore discuss the results in light of Mouffe's (2005) normative lens of agonism and radical democracy.
