The Queen of Life and Fags has Spoken: Madonna on Malawi Homos Sentenced to 14 years in Prison with Hard Labor

Street Fags: Martin Burgoyne and Madonna

"I am shocked and saddened by the decision made today 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.

"Today, 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."

  3. I'm glad she's spoken out, I hope it makes Malawians and Ugandans think again about their inhumane treatment of gay people. More powerful people need to follow Madonna's lead in condemning the persecution.
