Earlier this week, clothing chain Primark announced that it would be working with LGBTQ charity Stonewall to sell Pride-themed clothing. The company announced this union while also saying that they will be selling and distributing the merchandise all over Europe and the US. In addition, Primark announced that 20 percent of the proceeds will go towards Stonewall. That said, problems arose when Primark shared that the merchandise is being created in strict anti-gay countries. A spokesperson unleashed a can of worms on the company after revealing that the merch is “manufactured in China, Turkey and Myanmar… in accordance with internationally recognized standards.” The problem is that all three of these countries have anti-gay governments.
