Hilarious satire: Russia shuts down Broadway for being too gay

“If you weren’t gay…. that would be okay.”

I’m not nearly enough of a theater queen to fully get all the jokes, but this is incredibly well done.  And the faux musical they create is really good.  Give it a watch.

    Any time Harvey Fierstein (and his voice) gets involved, you know humanity will make it to the next level.

    Vitaly Churkin is on TV claiming there is no gay discrimination in Russia. Who you gonna believe?
