Following the increasing number of brutal sex attack in South Africa, Kelly Osbourne specifically calls fans to support effort in stopping lesbian rape in the country.

Kelly Osbourne is leading a campaign to protect lesbians from an increasing number of brutal sex attacks in South Africa. The singer has highlighted the practice of 'corrective rape', in which homosexual females are raped in the country in a bid to 'cure' their sexual preferences.

Osbourne is asking her devotees to sign up to a campaign calling for such crimes to be made illegal in the nation. In a post on her Twitter.com page, Osbourne writes, "Please sign this petition!" She then adds a link to a news item detailing the case of Millicent Gaika, who is pictured with a heavily bruised face from an attack last year.

A statement posted on campaign website Avaaz.org reads, "Brave South African activists are risking their lives to ensure that Millicent's case sparks change. Their appeal to the Minister of Justice has exploded to over 140,000 signatures, forcing him to respond on national television. If enough of us join in to amplify and escalate this campaign, we could help get urgent action to end 'corrective rape'."

"Let's call on President Zuma and the Minister of Justice to publicly condemn 'corrective rape', criminalize hate crimes, and lead a critical shift against rape and homophobia. Sign the petition now and share it with everyone."
