Watch: Melissa Etheridge protest song, Uprising of Love
Out rock singer, activist and all round legend, Melissa Etheridge has released a new track 'Uprising of Love' in solidarity for the world’s LGBTI people currently suffering under dictator regimes.
In a statement on her Uprising of Love website Etheridge said: “At this unique moment in history, when we are seeing such rapid progress in the fight for equality in the West, we cannot be blinded to appalling crimes against humanity elsewhere.
“Today in Russia, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people are facing harassment, arrest and violence under a set of horrific new laws. For their sake, we must come together and start an uprising of love.”
Proceeds from sales of 'Uprising of Love' will go to the Russian Freedom Fund
