Comedians Build Gay Bar on Russian Soil (Sort Of)

Comedians Build Gay Bar on Russian Soil (Sort Of)

Simon Gardenfors and Frej Larsson

Simon Gardenfors and Frej Larsson have devised a unique way to protest Russia's 'gay propaganda' laws.

Two Swedish comedians are taking a stand-up against antigay Russian legislation.

Simon Gardenfors and Frej Larsson constructed a makeshift gay bar in a Russian-owned area of Finland last weekend, reports the Associated Press.

Located near the village of Saltvik by the Baltic Sea, the building is inspired by the Blue Oyster Bar, a fictional gay bar from the 1984 film Police Academy (see below).

The goal, says the comedians, is to protest Russia's so-called "gay propaganda" laws, which prohibit public LGBT demonstrations.

Larsson and Gardenfors are also known internationally as musicians, as they rap together in the group Far & Son.

The local Russian consul has filed a complaint with local authorities, who are investigating what they term "some kind of construction."
