Madonna Joins HRC Campaign Against Russia


Madonna sent an email out this morning drumming up support for the Human Rights Campaign's 'Love Conquers Hate' campaign.

Wrote Madge in the mail:

"Love conquers hate." It's an iconic message that the Human Rights Campaign's members and supporters have spread to millions around the United States.

But right now in Russia, LGBT people and our allies who support basic fairness and dignity face a different reality. They are being targeted by hateful new laws that outlaw support for LGBT equality. Even with the 2014 Sochi Olympics just a few months away, fair-minded Russians are facing fines, harassment, and violence at the hands of thugs.

At this dangerous moment in Russian history, we as advocates have a responsibility to speak up and take our hopeful message global. That's why I'm joining HRC's Love Conquers Hate campaign, in hopes that more and more fair-minded people around the world will stand up and fight against the Russian government's campaign of hate.
