Council workers complain about gay toy art
Council employees in Denmark have demanded that a picture of two toy figures simulating gay sex be removed from their offices. According to news website lokalavisen.dk, workers at Roskilde Town Hall are in uproar over the cheeky artwork which shows two ‘Duplo’ men getting friendly in a public park.
The piece, by artist Svend Ahnstorm, has received at least three complaints from staff, according to reports. The exhibition, which has been installed in the town hall by the local art association, also features the popular children’s play figures in guises as Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Adolf Hitler.
Henrik Kolind, spokesman for Roskilde Council, said there are no plans to remove the offending images.
