Editors of the Russian version of the men's publication have published a list of gay celebrities whose contributions to culture are so great they've "earned our respect and the right to remain real men in our eyes".

Following the line of the country's anti-gay propaganda legislation, the publication's bosses state, "We, men, do not consider men who love men to be men. This is the rule, but there are exceptions."

They go on to list Halford and Mercury among those who are so cool "it doesn't matter what your orientation is".

Halford: 'Arizona Lawmakers Are Racist'


Judas Priest Rob Halford CNN

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford has become the latest celebrity to protest Arizona's controversial new immigration laws, insisting the legislation is "racist".

The rocker is a part-time Phoenix resident and he's appalled by the new law, which requires police to determine if people are in the country illegally and calls for state residents to carry identification papers with them at all times.

He tells CNN, "It's a really, really difficult time for a lot of people. We try and stay out of politics - that's not our job - but I think for something as volatile as this... There's Latino metalheads, and there's all kinds of metalheads.

"From my heart, I think it's a racist law, I really do. I mean, I've thought about it and I've looked at everybody's point of view, and it's a terrible thing that's going on there, so I'm a little bit upset about the whole thing. I hope it gets resolved... There's enough trouble going on in the world."
