    LHBTQ-personer och åldrande: nordiska perspektiv2013Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Lhbtq-personer och åldrande: Nordiska perspektiv samlar kunskap om äldre lhbtq-personers livsvillkor och åldrande utifrån studier som genomförts i Sverige, Danmark, Norge och Finland. Författarna uppmärksammar frågor om vad det innebär att under stora delar av livet behöva smyga med sin sexualitet eller könsidentitet, och vad det i olika tider har inneburit att komma ut med sin sexualitet och könsidentitet. Vilka räknas som familj? Hur är det att som äldre transperson påbörja en utredning för att ändra könsidentitet? Hur är det att som äldre behöva omsorgshjälp men att samtidigt vara rädd för att bli diskriminerad på grund av sin sexualitet eller könsidentitet?

    Boken kan användas inom utbildningar i hälso- och sjukvård och i socialt arbete, men även vid studier av äldre och åldrande samt inom det genusvetenskapliga fältet. Den riktar sig också till aktivister, föreningar, praktiker och samhällsplanerare.

    Turning vinegar into wine: Humorous self-presentations among older GLBTQ online daters2012In: Journal of Aging Studies, ISSN 0890-4065, E-ISSN 1879-193X, Vol. 26, no 1, p. 55-64Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates humorous and self-mocking comments about age and age-related appearance among older gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and queer advertisers in two Swedish Internet dating forums. Using a perspective where age is regarded as an accomplishment, humor was investigated as a way of relating to restrictive norms concerning age and sexuality. It was concluded that self-mocking comments, although sometimes subverting norms of age-appropriate behavior, contributed to allocating ambiguous problematic status to old age. According to this analysis, humor appeared as a form of age-salient maneuvering. If we change analytical focus and regard self-presentations as performances of marketability, the study illustrated that self-mocking comments on old age, being overweight, impotence and other age-related changes were in fact part of a repertoire that displayed marketable characteristics such as humor, self-distance and honesty among advertisers. The last part of the paper discusses these findings in terms of a need to focus on aspects that are relevant to the local context where the enactment is taking place, and the need to take care not to construct age and aging as the only objects of knowledge within aging research.

    Ageing Bodies that Matter: Age, Gender and Embodiment in Older Transgender People's Life Stories2015In: NORA: Nordic Journal of Feminist and Gender Research, ISSN 0803-8740, E-ISSN 1502-394X, Vol. 23, no 1, p. 4-19Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Within feminist and queer studies, age is rarely explored or theorized, and ageing is to a great extent ignored, while social gerontology tends to rest on assumptions of stable binary gender categories. This article starts with older trans people's life stories to explore intersections between (old) age, gender, and embodiment. The analysis, using a theoretical framework developed within critical gerontology, queer theory, and feminist theory, illustrates what ageing and old age may mean for transgender people. Bodily ageing is perceived very differently by trans people, depending on bodily conditions and on how they can and want to perform gender. While some experience what they perceive as the androgyny of age positively, other narratives illustrate how ageing can complicate the possibilities of performing linear gender. The ageing body can limit prospects for undergoing sex reassignment surgery (SRS). The analysis illustrates how older trans people may face ageist attitudes during the transition processes. Later life and the future might also bring fears about situations in which one will need care. For older trans people, this could mean fears of being discriminated against, having fewer possibilities to choose which contexts to be in, and which persons to have in one's home and close to one's body. A Baradian approach, in which bodies are seen as agential and performativity as material-discursive, offers complex understandings of older transgender people's experiences. The results trouble previous theoretical concepts, while highlighting the importance of broadening understandings of age, gender, and embodiment that do not take their starting-points in younger or middle age, linear gender, or abled congruent bodies.

    Den internationella forskningen om äldre hbtq-personer2013In: LHBTQ-personer och åldrande: nordiska perspektiv / [ed] Bromseth, Janne & Siverskog, Anna, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2013, 1, p. 31-43Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel ger en översikt av den internationella forskning som kombinerar perspektiv på äldre och åldrande med hbtq-perspektiv. Det visar vilka trender som funnits inom fältet; vilka tematiker som lyfts; samt problematiserar vilka forskningen fokuserat på och vilka som inkluderats i de empiriska studier som finns. De slutsatser som dras är att det behövs fler större kvantitativa studier på området, men även mer kvalitativ forskning som bör eftersträva ett bredare urval där personerna som medverkar i studier inte nödvändigtvis är vita, medelklass, lever öppet och är engagerade i hbtq-rörelser. Det behövs också mer fokus på äldre transpersoner och studier som problematiserar könsvarierande identitet i relation till hög ålder. Forskningen bör också vara teoretiskt förankrad och med ett intersektionellt perspektiv undersöka hur olika sociala positioner samverkar och förhåller sig till varandra.

    "För oss blir ju livet en enda stor teater": äldre transpersoners erfarenheter av åldrande och könsidentitet2013In: LHBTQ-personer och åldrande: nordiska perspektiv / [ed] Bromseth, Janne & Siverskog, Anna, Lund: Studentlitteratur AB, 2013, 1, p. 141-162Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta kapitel fokuserar äldre och åldrande i relation till könsvarierande identiteter. Det baserar sig på livsberättelseintervjuer med äldre transpersoner och deras erfarenheter, tankar och upplevelser kring kön och åldrande. Kapitlet fokuserar tre aspekter av trans i relation till äldre och åldrande; relationen till kön genom livsloppet; den åldrande kroppen; samt okunskapen kring trans. I berättelserna blir det tydligt hur könsvarierande identiteter setts som något socialt otänkbart under stora perioder under livet, men att det delvis upplevs som lättare att vara öppen på äldre dagar. Det finns också erfarenheter av att vilja genomgå könskorrigerande behandling, men att då inse att den äldre kroppen och hälsan sätter stopp. Personerna framhåller i berättelserna också hur de upplever att det finns en utbredd okunskap kring trans i samhället och inom sjukvården.

    Life as theatre: older transgender persons’ experiences of ageing and gender identity2012Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Older LGBTQ (Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer)identifying persons have during their lifetime witnessed andexperienced many juridical and social changes in attitudestowards sexual and gender identities. There is however a lack ofresearch on this subject in a Nordic context, especially in the caseof older trans identities.This presentation explores age and ageing in relation totransgender identities. It is based on life story interviews withpersons identifying as transgender aged 65 to 77 years old,made within a dissertation project about older GLBTQ identifyingpersons. The theoretical frame used consists of socialgerontological perspectives and queer theory. Three themes arefocused; the relation to gender throughout the life course; theageing body; and the lack of knowledge on trans issues.The results illustrate how trans identities and practices havebeen seen as inaccessible during big parts of life, but that adifferent context in combination with being in third age canoffer new possibilities to be open. There are also experiences ofattempts to undergo sex reassignment surgery, but facing thefact that health and the ageing body are making this wishimpossible. Some persons express worries for ageing and futureneed of care where they fear they might be discriminated. Thereare also experiences of a big lack of knowledge about transissues. One conclusion is that while it is possible to talk about a“homonormativity”, where the homosexual subject undercertain circumstances is seen as more respectable in generaldiscourses, transgender identities have not reached this point ifthey are not made invisible; something that can be hard toachieve with an ageing body that has not underwent sexreassignment surgery.

    “They just don’t have a clue”: Transgender aging and implications for social work2014In: Journal of gerontological social work, ISSN 0163-4372, E-ISSN 1540-4048, Vol. 57, no 2-4, p. 386-406Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores transgender aging, drawing from life story interviews with transgender adults aged 62–78. The analysis focuses on 3 themes: intersections of age and gender during the life course, lack of knowledge of transgender issues, and how previous experiences of accessing care and social services matter in later life. It illustrates how older transgendered adults carry physical and mental scars from previously encountered transphobia, which affect various aspects of later life. Implications for social work are discussed and client-centered care, with a biographical approach, is suggested to better meet the needs of transgendered older adults.
