THE GLBT community must make Madonna close Moscow and St. Petersburg Hard Candy Gyms NOW

  • Dear Mr. Harvey Fierstein, George Takei, Lady Gaga and GLBT public figures opposing Russia's human rights abuses,
    I hate homophobia and how governments write it into law. Thank you for perennially standing up for the human rights of my Gay, Lesbian, Bi-Sexual and Trans friends in Eastern Europe and beyond. I had a question and I understand there is sensitivity around the issue due to Madonna's exemplary work in the past for Aids research and tolerance of GLBT people and culture. Why then is she getting a free pass via her multi-million dollar investments into Russia and her willingness to bring commerce to this brutal regime? Madonna is currently investing millions into Russia via two multi-million dollar fitness centres which are aimed at the wealthy elite in Russia and which carry her name and image. Both were opened AFTER Pussy Riot was jailed and after Madonna supported them onstage so she clearly knew with whom she was doing business with. As we all know Russia is allowing the most severe human rights abuses of GLBT people which are largely those who make up her fan base. Thus GLBT money is being invested into a regime that is stripping them of even the most basic human rights. There appears to be no dire financial need for her to do business with Russia and I'm wondering why anti-Russia/Pro GLBT activists are not connecting the dots and seeing that she's getting the radical chic faux Lefty credentials on one hand while making money off and investing millions into a deadly country on the other. A few of our fellow friends think she's the "victim" here which I don't agree with. She can clearly afford to roll up shop and then bring the Pilates reformers and stairmasters back to Russia when they evolve out of the 18th century and join us in the 21st. Another friend said 'that's Madonna for you, she's just clever and gets away with it...' There is something severely wrong with being clever in that regard and this is why as a Leftist I have continually spoken out in regards to the fact I feel she is a greedy and manipulative, "look the other way capitalist" individual who is insincere and even destructive towards those less fortunate-even those who comprise her most loyal fan base. Your opinions and actions would be greatly appreciated as NO ONE should be bringing commerce to Russia.
    Peace, love and camp xox,
