dc.description.abstractThis research explores the contribution of participation in queer nightlife spaces, more specifically ‘De Regenboog Nijmegen’, to queer identity formation and community building. As all queer individuals potentially face oppression, this research explores in what ways queer nightlife can be safe(r) spaces for queer identity exploration and expression. Using semi-structured in-depth interviews and participant observations, this study provides insights on the unique characteristics of queer nightlife spaces. Recognizing these spaces as performative stages for both queer and non-queer bodies and identities, it highlights both physical aspects and a variety of social functions of queer nightlife spaces. Moreover, the importance of establishing deeper connections and queer communities for reciprocal understanding, navigation of self-acceptance, and identity expression. Adding to the field of intersectional research, this study underscores the intersectional nature of the queer community, acknowledging various challenges faced by the individuals within. This research also contributes to the representation of queer individuals, underlining the urgency of recognition of diverse experiences, both within and outside of academia.
