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.”
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— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) December 7, 2012
