On August 9 2012,¬†Madonna spoke out for gay rights at an “MDNA” concert in St Petersburg, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s home town, where ¬†a law was adopted to curb homosexual “propaganda.”

Performing in black lingerie with the words “No Fear” scrawled on her bare back, Madonna urged the audience – most wearing pink wrist bands distributed at the door – to “show your love and appreciation to the gay community”.

“We want to fight for the right to be free,” she said.
