"Ook Homo's"

The title of the post is taken from the headline of this article: "Bibliotheek leent behalve boeken ook homo's uit," or "Library lends not only books but also gays." I found it via this article in English, which goes with the only slightly less eyebrow-raising headline "Libary lends out people."

The English story pretty much covers it, though there are a couple of other tidbits from the Dutch article. One is that the library director who is implementing this scheme, Jan Krol, is in his spare time the chairman of the province's chapter of Holland's leading gay-rights organization. The other is that he got the idea from a Swedish colleague who has established a similar scheme in Malmö, where an English-language news source dubbed it the "loan a lesbian" program.
