This week’s cover: In 1996 when we published a cover leader arguing in favour of same-sex marriage, it caused more angry letters than a cover arguing against the monarchy. Now look around the world. Most Americans live in states where gays can marry. Tolerance has spread rapidly in Europe, Latin America and China. But there is also a backlash: Russia, much of the Arab world and a string of countries in Africa have either kept or tightened anti-gay laws. This week’s cover looks at the gay divide.

This an interesting article and everything but holy cow, The Economist, why are you so bad at covers? Your graphic design looks like it was done by a 15-year-old who just got a copy of photoshop yesterday. Zero points for both concept and execution.
