Madonna issued a statement last week condemning the Malawi court decision to sentence same-sex couple Steven Monjeza and Tinwonge Chimbalanga to 14 years in prison for “gross indecency” and “unnatural acts.” Now the singer, who has adopted two children from Malawi, is asking fans to add their names to her statement.
The website for Raising Malawi, a charity Madonna helped form in 2006, lists her statement regarding the antigay court decision and asks visitors to “stand with Madonna in support of equal rights and the freedom to love in Malawi."
"We must not sit back and allow this injustice to continue," a statement on the website reads after supporters add their email address to Madonna's statement. "Everyone deserves to have the freedom to love. Ask your friends to get involved, too."
