Lady Gaga put her neck out by proudly declaring her support for gay rights in Russia, a nation currently taking a far-right turn.
Speaking at a concert in Moscow on Thursday (in an undetermined accent), Gaga told the crowd she was warned about the "gay propaganda" in her stage show. "Thank you for spreading the message of equality around the world. Thank you for spreading the message of Born This Way."
"Get on your feet, Stand up, Russia. You have one chance to unite," she later said. "Where's all my gay kids tonight? Tonight, this is my house, Russia."
At an earlier show, Gaga thanked Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev for rejecting a law banning "homosexual propaganda." Read more here.
