Glitter & Be Gay
Recently, Russia’s Duma ushered in an anti-gay bill that prohibits “gay propaganda” for people under the age of 18. Young gays and lesbians are no longer allowed to have access to materials and information about “homosexual lifestyles.” In an odd side effect to this new bill, glitter use has also been banned from all school-aged children. Glitter manufacturers across Russia have severely curtailed production and have suffered an economic loss due to this new anti-gay law. It has been debated if all glitter use should be abolished in make-up and clothing. And thus begins a new lackluster age in Russian history.
