For many, moving to Finland for love can be a stressful and complicated process. Between the seemingly endless paperwork for non-EU citizens, a new language, a more reserved culture, and limited job prospects, many couples find the move to be quite the strain on their otherwise happy relationships. Some couples, though, have an added challenge: They’re same-sex and multicultural. Radio Uusjussi recently spoke with Dexter, whose moved to Finland from the UK to be with his male partner in 2007, about his experiences as a gay immigrant in Finland.
