Abstract [en]

The aim of the article is to identify, describe and understand the opportunities and hindrances for young people with intellectual disabilities (ID) in expressing a variety of sexual expressions, such as homo- and bisexuality. The method is qualitative interviews with people with ID in the age of 16-27, staff members and parents. The study show that young gay people with ID are an invisible group, and that the possibilities to show a variety of sexual expressions are depending on the surroundings attitudes and behaviours toward the youngsters. Therefore it is important to teach about different sexualities in the sex education at special schools and also to do more research concerning homo- and bisexuality and intellectual disability, without having the heterosexual norm as a starting point.
