What did Elton John say?

Elton John

Brit balladeer, pianist and composer Elton John, best known for songs he co-wrote with famous lyricist Bernie Taupin (his work partner since 1967), is taking the Russian powers-that-be to task once again over what he calls their “inhumane” anti-gay legislation.

Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, signed a ban on “homosexual propaganda” last year.  John, who has long been openly gay, performed in Kazan and Moscow last month in spite of small protests from more than one anti-homosexual group.  John quickly learned that hate crimes have been increasing in the country.

John strongly criticized Putin and the government during his concert in Moscow.  President Putin’s additional comments linking homosexuality to pedophilia has spurred John to further action.  In fact, John is sharing his comprehensive condemnation which he recently wrote and posted on his website.

Ever the entertainer, John prefaced his remarks with a thank you to his Russian fans.  “[I’m] deeply grateful for the support of the Russian people who have welcomed and accepted me in their country ever since I first visited in 1979.”

Referencing Russian leadership John added: “Vicious homophobia has been legitimatized by this legislation and given extremists the cover to abuse people’s basic human rights.  “Whatever the intention of Russia’s homosexuality and pedophilia propaganda laws I am absolutely clear from my own personal experience that it is proving deeply dangerous to the LGBT community and deeply divisive to Russian society.”
