Resumé

This article explores how main characters Isak and Even in the Norwegian web series SKAM (Season 3) cultivate “Evak”. I investigate how different kinds of media function as a means for Isak and Even to explore a different kind of temporal structuring: queer time. I do this through the concepts of media and temporality and in a theoretical framework composed by media philosophy and queer studies. I argue that by residing in different time warps, effected by these mediations, Isak and Even step out of a heteronormative structuring of time. I thereby conclude that they, in ecstasy, manifest themselves as Evak, reclaiming their “here and now” earlier disturbed by heteronormative life forms.
