Lady Gaga thanks Medvedev for not supporting anti-gay law

American pop singer Lady Gaga has tweeted a thank you to Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev for not supporting legislation barring any “homosexual propaganda” in Russia.

“Thank You Prime Minister Medvedev for not standing by your party’s anti gay propaganda law & instead supporting my show+fans all over Russia,” she said via her Twitter account early on Saturday.

Earlier on Friday in an interview with leading TV channels Russian Prime Minister said he saw no grounds for legislative regulation of homosexuality in Russia.

“Not all moral issues, behavioral habits and inter-personal communication patterns have to become legislatures. Because not all relationships have to be legislatively regulated,” Medvedev said.

Medvedev’s comment comes just two weeks before the State Duma will consider a federal draft bill banning “homosexual propaganda.”

Today Lady Gaga is to give a performance in St. Petersburg.
