Love Conquers Hate Madonna

Madonna joins Human Rights Campaign’s “Love Conquers Hate” initiative.

Recently, Madonna spurred outrage in Russia for waving a LGBT flag at a concert in August.

Madonna is showing her support for Russia’s LGBT community by signing onto the Human Rights’ Campaign’s “Love Conquers Hate” initiative. Madonna believes that…

“At this dangerous moment in Russian history, we, as advocates, have a responsibility to speak up and take our hopeful message global.”

Madonna is no stranger to showing her support to Russia’s LGBT community.  At a concert in August 2012, she caused controversy by speaking in support of local gays and waving a LGBT flag.

Russian LGBT rights organizations have applauded Madonna saying, “It is very important the celebrities like Madonna or Lady Gaga join initiatives of that kind.”

The Love Conquers Hate campaign aims to “…harness the energy of our members and supporters, and all fair minded Americans, to bring justice to Russia’s LGBT community.”
