When queer people talk about ourselves, what kinds of important events surface in our life stories? Across interviews with 99 queer people carried out in the 2010s, we identify six important events that feature in the interviews across other differences. We see these six events as queer metanarratives that can be understood as a relevant when people want to make themselves understandable as queer in Norway in the 2010s.
