On June 26 2015, Madonna joined the world in celebrating PRIDE with this Tweet:
Finally And at Last! The Revolution Of Love has Begun! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️#livingforlove ❤️#rebelheartsunite
You can read thousands of messages from Madonna’s fans thanking her for her support of the LGBT community throughout her entire career, even when it wasn’t popular to be supportive of the cause.
We love this one from ames Davis: “Madonna…you helped all of this come together by standing up for gay rights back when no celebrities did…”
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.
On June 26 2013, upon hearing the Supreme Court’s rulings on DOMA and Prop 8, Madonna made this statement:
“What a way to start my day!! I’m wearing a smile from ear to ear. There is a G-D! Justice is served. Hallelujah!!”
