Homonormative und nationalistische Politiken des Fortschritts in Debatten um nicht-hegemoniale Familien und Verwandtschaft
Homonormative and nationalist politics of progress in the debates on non-hegemonial families and kinship formationsLesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gen-derqueer parents are currently transforming kinship and family. This article scrutinizes how the calls for legal recognition of so-called “rainbow families” are debated at the politi-cal level. It analyses the temporalities invoked both in the discourse on adoption rights for same-sex parents in parliamentary debates in Switzerland and in ethnographic interview material. The author argues that legal recog-nition of same-sex families is based on homo-normative and nationalist regimes and that ambivalent processes of normalization are constitutive for the idea of the politics of pro-gress.
Keywords: queer temporalities, queer kinship, rainbow families, LGBTQ, heteronormativity, homo-normativity
