Abstract

Using Gagnon and Simon’s script theory, the author tries to highlight some processes linked to gender identity and sexuality among young people (18-26 years). In the first section, the article will focus almost exclusively on Gagnon and Simon’s theory and how the concept of script is articulated on the three different levels – the intrapsychic script, the interpersonal script, and the cultural scenario. Then, the second section will outline some personal and interpersonal scripts of the young people interviewed, through which they form their own gender identity. The aim of the article is to bring to light the processes underlying how young people develop their scripts in relation to their own identity, linked to sex, gender and sexual orientation
