Three lesbian couples will be married next week on Tuesday, 21 October in the train. The idea of having lesbian couples marry in the train is part of a reading campaign of the NS (Dutch railways) called ‘Nederland Leest’ (’The Netherlands reads’).I'm queer and am a voracious reader, but what kind of stunt is this? If I were on my honeymoon trip on a train, I sure as hell wouldn't be reading! (Better pull down the train compartment curtains!)
The campaign features Harry Mulisch’s book ‘Twee vrouwen’ (’Two women’), a book with a homosexual theme, which explains the preference for lesbian couples.
