Bögjävlar (2007) - Daniel Björk, Tomas Hemstad, Stefan Ingvarsson, Petter Wallenberg, Roger Wilson
Bögjävlar (Fucking faggots) is a witty and angry expose on contemporary Swedish gay culture. The widespread acceptance of gays in Sweden has led to a watered down, ever smiling, polite gay culture. Today's Swedish gay culture has become self-limiting, infantile and mediocre. What happens to a culture that is assimilated? Why is it commonly believed that gays like bad music? Do gays still have sex or are they just cuddly and harmless? Is gay culture really trend-setting in fashion? These are some of the questions asked and answered in Bögjävlar.
