Lady Gaga Comes Out On Twitter Against Anti-LGBT Violence In Russia

The “Born This Way” singer joined the growing outcry against Russia’s ban on homosexual propaganda. Vitaly Milonov, the politician who wrote Saint Petersburg’s anti-gay law, is now attempting to charge Gaga with “promoting sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism among minors.”

Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia. The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?

@ladygaga

The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom.

@ladygaga

Why didn’t you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn’t want answer to the world?

4. In that third tweet, Gaga is referring to her trouble with Russian authorities in 2012. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev spoke out against the law and allowed her concert to go on as planned.


Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party’s anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia
