Russia Cancels Selena Gomez’s Shows Due To Her Support Of Gay Rights

Selena Gomez has to cancel two shows planned for next week in Russia as the country will not allow her into the country based on her support of gay rights.


Selena had been scheduled to perform in St. Petersburg on September 23 and in Moscow on September 25.

According to The Moscow Times, ”authorities in Russia have decided to make entry more difficult for foreign performers following Madonna and Lady Gaga’s open advocacy for LGBT equality in the wake of that country’s controversial law banning the promotion of “nontraditional sexual relationships.”

Lady Gaga slammed the Russian government for what she described as its “criminal” stance on gay citizens, and Madonna is currently being sued for her support of the LGBT community.

Organizers have been forced to scrap the Selena shows.
