dc.description.abstractThere are a growing number of scholars who have contributed to the literature surrounding discourses of homosexuality, homophobia and heternormativity in sport and educational settings, namely Butler (1990), Caudwell (2006), Foucault (1984; 1990) and Griffin (1992; 1998). The burgeoning research on sexuality in sports studies provides insights into the experiences of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) women and men in sport, as well as physical education teachers, and how they construct and manage their conflicting identities. These papers depict stories of marginalization, discrimination and victimization (Lock, 2003; Messner, 1999; Sparkes, 2002, 1994; Sykes, 1998; Veri, 1999). However, more recently evidence suggests (Anderson, 2011; Broad, 2001; Iannota and Kane, 2002; McCormack, 2011) there are groups of individuals who have had positive experiences related to their LGB identity. It is hoped this paper will contribute to the lack of research relating to students experiences of sexuality. Using semi-structured interviews with five participants, this paper aims to highlight the experiences of female LGB students within a university sports campus. This research ultimately shows that further education settings and the sports environment can provide positive experiences and a 'safe space' for young LGB femalesen_US
