Madonna released the following statement in response to a Malawi court’s decisions to jail two men for 14 years for the “crime” of homosexuality. After reading the statement, be sure to add your name in support of equal rights.
“I am shocked and saddened by the decision made this week by the Malawian court, which sentenced two innocent men to prison.
As a matter of principle, I believe in equal rights for all people, no matter what their gender, race, color, religion, or sexual orientation.
This week, Malawi took a giant step backward. The world is filled with pain and suffering; therefore, we must support our basic human right to love and be loved.
I call upon the progressive men and women of Malawi—and around the world—to challenge this decision in the name of human dignity and equal rights for all.”
Is it any wonder Gay Men love Madonna? She Rocks!
