Melissa Etheridge is fighting for LGBT rights in Russia!

The singer-songwriter has been so angered by the nation’s new anti-gay laws that she sat down and wrote an AH-Mazing song!

It’s not about how wrong Russia’s treatment of the LGBT community has been though, but rather a call for unity! A call for peace! And of course, a call for love!

Melissa’s single is titled Uprising of Love and is a total anthem for freedom! We LOVE it!

She’s also started a human rights coalition by the same name, which has gotten support from a TON of celebs so far, including Madonna, James Franco, Julianne Moore, Cyndi Lauper, and Edward Norton.

Melissa broke down what the words in Uprising of Love mean to her on a personal level, sharing:

"The lyrics of 'Uprising of Love' came from such a personal and passionate spot in my soul and I'm more than excited to share this anthem with the world. Love is intangible and unpredictable, but it's the one feeling that is universally experienced and desired by all.”

Sing it, sister!

Press PLAY (below) to listen to Melissa's inspiring song! The single will be released for purchase tomorrow, with all proceeds going to the Russian Freedom Fund which supports LGBT activists in Russia!

    I don't know if any of these idiots in hollywood have noticed but the Russians are giving a world party. they really don't need a bunch of homo's causing trouble. they got real live killer muslims there trying to kill people and blow up shit. if you don't like their policy then don't go but making the Olympics about QUEERS is WRONG.

    Re: Dominick J. – Woe woe DomiDick. I realize your fifth boyfriend in a month left you for someone he just met at a gay bar. Just chill. You do realize that most of the world population is against homosexuality. So go troll for a new boyfriend you "hetrophobic" fool.
