For the 36th episode of Private Parts Unknown, your hosts Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra take you back to Helsinki for a previously unreleased episode about the legalization of gay marriage in Finland & how that's impacted the lives of queer residents.
We cover the overwhelming response to the initial petition, the recent history of how the law passed, a classically Finnish wedding proposal, coming out later in the life, what it was like to be the 1st same-sex couple to get married in Finland, the legislation's impact on LGBT+ acceptance & more!
