Singer Katy Perry on Friday debuted a
PSA by (We Are) #GayPropaganda.
Each month an artist helms Art
for Freedom, an awareness campaign created by Madonna and Vice
Magazine and aimed at exposing human rights violations. Perry took
the reigns for January.
“Thx @Madonna for having me curate
#ArtForFreedom this month!” Perry tweeted to her more than 50
million followers. “Check out my last pick, @GayPropaganda 'The
Are) #GayPropaganda is a social media campaign that connects art
and images to redefine “gay propaganda.”
The campaign's The Peace Sign is
the third in a series of videos recreating images in the news of
violence against Russia's LGBT community.
In the 1-minute video, a gay rights
activist makes the peace sign as he is carted off by authorities.

“I am so fortunate to have the
freedom to express myself through music,” said Perry. “I believe
that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all
stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art
be your voice.”
