norms of gender and gender identity, I combine the quantitative analysis with a qualitative
thematic analysis, using central concepts of transgender studies, queer theory and the
minority stress model as theoretical framework. The results indicates that cisnormativity,
gender binaries and environmental stigmatization affects transgender people’s self-image,
mental health and experience of school. Different groups among the transgender respondents
indicates to be affected differently by these norms. (Less)
