A guy in a wedding dress getting high

From my IG www.instagram.com/trovatten/.

Alright, this is a tough one.

 

The guy in this photograph is inhaling something referred to as ‘mona’ or ‘activo’ or PVC cleaner which is a liquid used for cleaning drainpipes. In Mexico City you, unfortunately, see a lot of young guys getting high on the streets inhaling this and for good reasons.

 

This is a quote from a 15-year-old homeless kid who is addicted to ‘activo’:

 

“We've had men coming into our tents and choosing whomever they want... I have had to do things I never knew existed, that's where the medicine we inhale really comes in handy."
