"I'm here to say that the gay community and gay people here an all around the world have the same rights. The same rights to be treated with dignity, with respect, with tolerance, with compassion, with love!" - [Madonna defied the St. Petersburg ban on 'gay propaganda'](http://www.madonnatribe.com/news/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=7473) during her Thursday concert and criticized Russia's draconian laws. She did this following her concert in Moscow on Tuesday during which she showed [her support for jailed anti-Putin group Pussy Riot](http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/08/world/europe/madonna-defends-pussy-riot-at-moscow-concert.html).
