The openly bi singer performed in the country this week

Russian fans have praised Halsey for taking a stand against the country’s anti-gay laws. 

The openly bi singer visited Russia this week to perform in support of her second album ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom‘.

During her visit, she posted some thoughts to Instagram about being in a place where she could be legally discriminated against for her sexuality or fined for “spreading gay propaganda” to under 18s, due to Russian gay propaganda laws.

“I’m out in Moscow and feelin unlucky,” Halsey wrote. “Scared the police gonna keep me in custody. And all these kids love me, but Russia don’t fuck with me. Cause I wrote some songs about women who fuck with me.”  Read more via NME
