The King of Norway Stands Up For Gay Rights!

You have to love the King of Norway. His speech on gay rights and tolerance has made it all over the world, and has proven what an accepting, forward thinking country he oversees.

Well, in response to King Harald’s intervention, it seems that many English speaking nations are wanting to get a transcript of what he said, according to Spokeswoman Marianne Hagen.

Speaking in the Palace Park in Oslo, 79-year-old Harald said: “Norwegians are girls who love girls, boys who love boys, and girls and boys who love each other.”

He said many Norwegians have emigrated from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Poland and other countries and that they “believe in God, Allah, the Universe and nothing.”

The speech was apparently made in Finland when he was on a state visit.

Well, as we all know, that wonderful look into the psychology of Norwegians has gone viral on social media, being shared ten’s of thousands of times.

A Progressive Society

What more can you say? In the escort industry, we see people around Europe trying to get this line of work closed down. This is because they look down on sex workers as third class citizens, just like the gay community, and immigrants have suffered. However, what the escorts on our site have realised is that the vast majority of Norwegians accept them what they are; real people.

Taking things back to the gay community, the quest for gay rights goes on. As a society, Norway has taken huge steps forward over the last ten years, but there is still a way to go. However, when you have a head of state like King Harald making such fantastic comments, then you realise the nation is well on the way to becoming a fair and equal society.

King Harald, you really are the Escort Norway ‘hero of the week’
