When the Queen is right, she is RIGHT!
Madonna recently took to Instagram to show her support of the Human Rights Campaign's Love Conquers Hate project and now she is speaking out about how important it is that we all throw our support behind the campaign!
The project is to show the Russia LGBT community that we support them through all of the hateful and AWFUL laws being passed in Russia what with upcoming 2014 Sochi Olympics being so close.
So, major DUH that we should ALL support it!
Her Madgesty said:
"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."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves!!!
