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.
