Russia: Madonna Responds to St. Petersburg “Gay Propaganda” Law Controversy

Singer Madonna has responded to the St. Petersburg “gay propaganda” law controversy on her Facebook page (21,226 ‘likes', 2,372 shares, 1,422 comments so far): “[...] I will come to St. Petersburg to speak up for the gay community, to support the gay community and to give strength and inspiration to anyone who is or feels opressed. I don't run away from adversity. I will speak during my show about this ridiculous atrocity.” (Masha Gessen's post on the issue, on The New York Times’ Latitude Blog, is here.)
