  • Mô tả: This paper focuses on the first two decades (1982-1998) of the Gay Games, in which an important story unfolds about normalisation and how that contributes (paradoxically) to further racism and sexual oppression. Following McWhorter's ( 2009 ) important analysis of Foucault's 'racism against the abnormal', I suggest the Gay Games have worked hard to distance themselves from the 'abnormal' from their very inception. The paper discusses how the early Gay Games are a homonormative leisure formation seeking mainstream acceptance through such examples as: the development of a commodified and conventional sporting spectacle; the individualising and privatising impulses to the AIDS crisis; the granting of a US immigration waiver in 1994; and the consumption of exoticised and racialised bodies in 1998. Moving beyond the celebration of lesbian and gay affirmation, I argue that the push for normalisation at the games produces them as a biopolitical technology of whiteness, class privilege and racism. The paper concludes by suggesting that the homonormative discourses of the twentieth century Gay Games functioned as a condition of possibility for the twenty-first century Gay Games to be mobilised homonationally, that is, as a form of post-9/11 (homo)sexualised racism that semiotically contributes to sustaining a global 'war on terror' (Puar, 2007 ).
