dc.description.abstractThe LGBTQ+ community has over the past fifty years gone from being a severely oppressed group of people, where most people lived closeted lives, to become a well known minority group that many people associate with celebration, bravery and pride. This is not to say that the circumstances have completely changed for the LGBTQ+ community. They are still subjected to a high level of threat when it comes to both freedom to love, and freedom to participate in society as themselves. In addition to that, the discrimination they face in the labor marked makes it difficult to find substantial financial income. In the political debate of remedy for oppressed minorities, we often face a confrontation between the scope of recognition and the scope of redistribution. In light of what I choose to see as a success, the pride parade has given rise to the recognition of the LGBTQ+ community and made a space for them in most western democratic societies. Examining pride, then, through the theories of Axel Honneth and Nancy Fraser, I trace the benefits and failures of recognition theory in the case of sexual minorities.en_US
