Abstract [en]

In this essay, I reflect on my experiences of living as an openly gay man in two seemingly different cultures: Latvia and Sweden. Latvia is a heterocracy where the supremacy of heterosexual people is symbolically embodied in the constitution. It is an explicitly homophobic environment where members of the LGBT community, if they are open about their sexual orientation, can encounter physical violence. Sweden, on the other hand, is praised for being sexually progressive, and the marriage laws are, in contrast to Latvia, gender neutral. However, I argue that both societies are ruled by heteronormativity, requiring that LGBT persons adapt their lifestyles to the main tenets of the heterosexual normative model of cohabitation, and that the difference between the two is only in the degree of the adaptations required.
