When Judas Priest played in St. Petersburg in 2012, the metal band was told to keep quiet about anything gay while on stage, says its gay lead singer in a new interview. Out musician Rob Halford told British music magazine, Mojo, in its November issue that, “When we played in Saint Petersburg recently, the mayor’s office told us not to make any references to gay rights. But I wouldn’t have wanted to do that anyway. I’m not an activist, but just me standing on that stage in that very homophobic place was a victory. I didn’t have to go on waving a rainbow banner. I am the rainbow flag of metal. I consider it a triumph, just the fact of us playing there.” [Source]
