They claim to be the first airline in Europe to promote services to this group.
Including maps, guides, events, etc, from Copenhagen and Stockholm.

Next summer, Copenhagen will host the World Out Games 2009, for which SAS is the Strategic Partner. But there is no reason to wait that long to visit wonderful Copenhagen, the capital of the world's most gay-friendly country.

Copenhagen is not a huge sprawling metropolis, which makes finding your way around simple and convenient. Everything is pretty much within walking distance. And this is particularly true of Copenhagen's gay scene. ...
It's almost as if Stockholm was created just to attract globetrotting gay travelers. Here you'll find some of the world's best design, fashion and music, mixed up with gorgeous people, top restaurants and funky bars in the world's most beautiful capital.

In late July the popular Stockholm Pride kicks off again, this time also hosting EuroPride. This year it is Stockholm Pride's 10 year anniversary, which was first launched back in 1998 when Stockholm hosted EuroPride for the first time. This time Pride will be bigger and better than ever. Around 500,000 watch the parade every year, which is one third of Greater Stockholm's population! ...

So does that mean if you book a cheap flight via the gay link, you get a seat in S&M class as opposed to Punishment class

Internal Ft/sk Joke

You think that is the reason we keep flying SK even in P-class? That we like it?

Note to less FT/SK savvy: Punishment Class (P-Class) is Flyer Talk jargon on the SK board for ordinary economy class. SK used to have very good economy class service, with - for an airline - very good catering even for the cheapest tickets. With the low-cost boom SK started to ooperate a three class system: business, economy extra and economy. Intercontinentally all three classes offer adequate service including catering. Intra-Europe Economy offers no free catering at all, even on flights up to five hours (OSL-LPA). Thus the term P-class was introduced on FT. This coincided more or less with the introduction of earning only 25% miles on the cheaper fares. Domestically there is a one class system, thus all flights are P-class (in Norway with free coffee though!), so it is fully possible to buy a ticket listed by SK as a business ticket, paying USD 1500 R/T, and still having to pay USD 10 for a sandwich.
