You can all blame the Faroe Islander Boyishy for this one. All I can say is, you have to watch your mouth when you talk with me.
Originally Sweden and Åland were involved too, but I decided to break the idea into two comics.
Anyway, the Faroe Islands is the most religious part of the Nordics and the one with fewest gay rights (Gay sex is allowed, but not gay marriages and adoptions, and registered partnerships are not recognized)
Not all straight Faroe Islanders are of course religious and/or against homosexuality, and it’s nowhere near as bad as some of the middle eastern countries, so don’t get the wrong picture. Unfortunately some politicians with very religious views are in charge (One wouldn’t go to a dinner with Iceland’s lesbian prime minister who had brought her wife with her).
But no one is that homophobic without being in the closet... ;)
