Abstract [en]

In this thesis, I explore how eight homosexual men who are pensioners orient and perceive their retirement in relation to their life stories. I have conducted six individual interviews and one pair interview with two informants using life course interview as method. How they perceive their lives as pensioners and life before retirement becomes visible through life course interviews. With queer phenomenology as theory, I analyse how the informants can move through time and space in their life stories. In addition to how normative lifelines effect what choices can be made for a non-normative individual and how they need to relate to heterosexual norms. Throughout the thesis, age and generation effect how the informants talk about their lives, no matter if it is “now” or in the past. Time and space are made visible through norms regarding family, marriage, and children, as well as through collective holding points such as memories, places, or events. In conclusion, the eight men have had to deal with both hetero and homo normative lifelines throughout their working life and retirement. What these lifelines have included has shifted over time, but, for most of them, in relation to sexuality and age.
