In my master's thesis "Lesbians and Locker Rooms" I interviewed eight lesbian athletes and concluded that lesbian realities in sport can be connected to a larger set of practices which assist in the construction of a heteronormative order. In this paper I have reinterpreted previous interview material in order to examine the performances of both (homo/hetero)sexual identities in their sports in relation to this heteronormative order.
