The "Singing Sailor"

The “Singing Sailor”

No, it’s not high-expensive modern arms or some kind of underwater barrier, it’s a brand new method. Swedish created a device that emits a message in Morse code that says “This way if you are gay”. The creators called their device the “Singing Sailor” and it has a neon sign that pictures a man wearing only a sailors cap and white underwear and a message “Welcome to Sweden” in English and Russian. Activists also added a text, saying “Gay since 1944″ under English message as a reference to the year, when Sweden legalized gay marriages.

This is a response to the actions of the Swedish government that offered a way to increase the level of defense by increasing military outgoings by 11% during the next 5 years. Swedish authorities decided to make this step for the first time in the last 20 years due to increased activity of Russian submarines in Swedish waters.

Activists also wanted to express protest against homophobia in Russia, and especially against the recent law in Russia that prohibits anyone to tell children about gay evenness.
