Lawyer for the Russian LGBT Network, Maria Kozlovskaya, thinks it’s great to see support from American celebrities.
“It is very important that celebrities like Madonna or Lady Gaga join initiatives of that kind,” she said.
After a performance in St. Petersburg last August, a local organization tried to sue her for $10 million under the gay propaganda law after she spoke in support of gay rights. The court threw out the lawsuit.
Lady Gaga is also under fire, as a local resident claimed her 13-year-old daughter was subjected to “an imitation of sexual intercourse between women and advocacy of alcohol consumption,” during her St. Petersburg show last December.
