Last week in Manchester, England, Nick Hurley was walking home from work to get ready for a trip down to the beach to Brighton for Pride. He'd picked up some glitter to add to the fun of the festivities. As he was peacefully walking down the street, a car full of boys shouted, "faggot," at him from their window as they raced past.

Although he may normally have shrugged off the slur, right before Pride he wasn't taking it. Maybe it was the hot Manchester sun, but Nick was angry and wasn't going to take it today.

Reminded of his glitter and with justice in his mind, Nick ran after the car and emptied a tube of glitter into their open window. It was a satisfying punishment for the homophobia they inflicted on him.

Like any good millennial, Nick tweeted about his encounter immediately afterward and it went viral--reaching almost 5 million people.

While Nick got his sweet revenge by dumping glitter on these homophobic guys, this kind of thing happens every day. A lot of good has come from Nick's tweets, including donations to LGBT charities like StonewallUK. Nick Hurley is a glitter activist (although he uses biodegradable glitter) who's now out there to change the world. He was even featured on BBC News!
