Rihanna Stands Up for Gay Rights in Russia

Posted Monday February 17, 2014 5:45 PM GMT

There has been widespread controversy over the Russian government’s anti-gay disposition, and Rihanna refuses to stay silent on the matter.

The “We Found Love” singer Instagrammed a photo in which she’s wearing a P6 hat from the Principle 6 clothing campaign, thus showing her support for the homosexual community.

Principle 6 is a reference to a section of the Olympic Charter that explicitly prohibits any discrimination against athletes. It states, “The practice of sport is a human right.”

Russia currently has an “anti-gay propaganda” law that violates the Olympic Charter, though the International Olympic Committee still chose Sochi as the site of the 2014 Winter Games.
