Yeah this is a group of people in Sweden who do social experiments. The background was that a guy e-mailed them and said that he thinks he got fired from his job once his boss found out he was gay (the guy who e-mailed, not the boss). I'll retell how I read it, since as you say, the translation isn't that good and some of the things that come accross as rude or polite don't come accross that well just with text.
To test his theory, both of them got interviews for one job at the company. It's some kind of trucker-storage-thing job. One of them said he has no working experience, lives in his parent's basement playing FIFA, and when asked if he has a license to drive a pitch-fork, he says something that's quite rude like "well I figured you'd pay for it".
The other guy is over-qualified, has the license, the experience, the works. I notice that a lot of English-speakers react to the fact that he says he has a boyfriend and think it's over the top.
I just have to point something out here: the first time he says "Jag och min kille", which translated to "My guy and I". It sounds a bit weird in English, calling your boyfriend "kille" (guy), is a very casual way of referring to your partner. But is undoubtely your partner. It's like saying "My boo and I", it's casual but still implies lover-partner.
When the interviewer hears this, he says "W... what did you say?", and THEN the guy clarifies by saying "Ja jag och min pojkvän", translating to "My boyfriend and I". Because pojkvän is the exact translation of boyfriend, and it is a bit more "heavy", it has a bit more weight to it.
I don't know how it is in other countries, but in Sweden it's very common for people to talk about things that they do with their partners or families at work, even at interviews. Like if I were straight, no one in Sweden would react to if I said "My girlfriend and I just bought a cat" or "My girlfriend and I just bought an apartment" at work. They'd be happy for us, but they wouldn't think about the pronouns.
Honestly, personally I've often casually mentioned that I have boyfriend in similiar ways at work, and I've never had any problems with it. Homophobia exists in Sweden but not to that big of a degree, but it is growing along with extreme right-wing-parties getting more popular.
