My Prediction for the Shortest-Living Magazine Today

In the backward former Soviet state of Belarus, some gay activists have just launched a gay magazine called, Gay: Good as You.

Now, Belarus isn't the Czech Republic or Eastern Germany. It's not even Russia or Poland. And the country has prevented the magazine from being registered, which means it can't print more than a couple hundred copies. (So you have to download a digital version here.)

Though the cover makes it look like the magazine's a skin publication, most of the pages are filled with text. I don't read Russian or whatever the language is, but I can tell text from photos, and text predominates.

You might as well download a copy now and read it, if you read Russian (or whatever it is). Because there's a high probability this publication won't last very long.

Wish them well.
