Madonna is being sued for $10 million by a group of anti-gay Russian activists who say she insulted their feelings when she spoke out for gay rights at her concert in St Petersburg.

During her performance last week Madonna attacked a city law adopted in March that imposed fines for spreading homosexual "propaganda." One of the ten anti-gay activists taking the suit said:

"After Madonna's concert maybe some boy becomes gay, some girl becomes lesbian, fewer children are born as a result and this big country cannot defend its borders, for me it causes moral suffering."

Homosexuality was decriminalised in Russia in 1993, but prejudice against the gay community runs deep, attempts to hold gay rights rallies St Petersburg often results in arrests and clashes.
