Abstract: Widening the research of the LGBTI+ community’s experiences in private spaces is essential to provide more data about the state of the art so that it can contribute to the identification of the violence LGBTI+ youth experience in these spaces. The present chapter studies a group of young cis women of nonnormative sexuality, from an intracategorical complexity approach, to investigate their experiences in their family homes in Manresa, a medium-sized city in Catalonia. The reporting of these women brings to light the discrimination and inequality they experience due to their condition as non-heterosexual young women. Additionally, it portrays the strategies they develop in order to face these situations. The results show that the family home is based on heteronormative standards and that young non-heterosexual women use resilience strategies within it. This chapter shows the discrimination and inequality that lesbians, bisexuals and diverse sexuality women undergo and resist throughout their youth at home.
