Madonna broke a St. Petersburg law on Thursday night when she spoke out in favor of gay rights, a municipal lawmaker claims.

“We want to fight for the right to be free,” Madonna told the audience, most of whom were wearing pink wristbands distributed at the door. She urged them to “show your love and appreciation to the gay community.”

“Do we live in fear?” Madonna asked the audience, who replied: “No!”

St. Petersburg Assemblymember Vladimir Milonov told Russia's Interfax news agency that either the pop star or concert organizers will be fined for violating the city's law which criminalizes “public actions aimed at propaganda of pederasty, lesbianism, bisexuality and transgenderism among minors.”

Milonov, who sponsored the law, stated that there were children as young as 12 present at the concert.

“Madonna or the organizers need to be brought to justice,” Milonov said.

According to Reuters, 74 people have been fined for violating the law since it went into effect in March.
