Cher says “no” to Sochi Olympics over Russian anti-gay laws

The LGBT community’s diva stands with us.  Cher passes on opening the Sochi 2014 Winter Games:

“I can’t name names but my friend called who is a big oligarch over there, and asked me if I’d like to be an ambassador for the Olympics and open the show. I immediately said no. I want to know why all of this gay hate just exploded over there. He said the Russian people don’t feel the way the government does.”
