Title: Pro-Gay Anti-Immigrant into the Mainstream
Author: de Hoog, Akke

Keywords: Homonationalism
Abstract: This thesis analyzes pro-gay, anti-immigrant rhetoric (PGAIR) in Dutch political parties across the spectrum since 2000. The thesis compares and contrasts rhetorical trends across parties and election cycles. In doing so, it shows the influence of populist politics on mainstream politics. It concludes that all three mainstream parties VVD, CDA and PvdA have used PGAIR as a rhetorical tool since 2000. An increase in use could be linked to the rise in popularity of anti-immigrant populist rhetoric in the Netherlands.
