Barber in Silverload

In Silverload, the player meets a barber who “has very effeminate mannerisms and voice” (ETJB, 2014), which can be read as a sign that he is meant to be a gay character. The barber is seen at 6:10 in this video. In addition to being clearly readable as gay, he seems to be coded as broadly European/Eastern European.
