Elton John Pens The Lengthy Letter To Vladimir Putin Following LGBTQ Comments

Elton John Pens The Lengthy Letter To Vladimir Putin Following LGBTQ Comments

British pop/rock legend Elton John has shared his thoughts after President of Russia Vladimir Putin following LGBTQ comments.

During a recent interview with Financial Times, Vladimir Putin has stated some anti-LGBTQ comments. He said:

 “We have no problem with LGBT persons. God forbid, let them live as they wish. But some things do appear excessive to us. They claim now that children can play five or six gender roles.”

Elton John took to Instagram on Friday to reflect on some comments of Vladimir Putin. He penned a lengthy letter to him. He shared a photo with his husband and child with the following statement. He wrote:

“Dear President Putin,

I was deeply upset when I read your recent interview in the Financial Times. I strongly disagree with your view that pursuing policies that embrace multicultural and sexual diversity are obsolete in our societies. I find duplicity in your comment that you want LGBT people to “be happy” and that “we have no problem in that”.

Yet Russian distributors chose to heavily censor my film “Rocketman” by removing all references to my finding true happiness through my 25 year relationship with David and the raising of my two beautiful sons. This feels like hypocrisy to me.

I am proud to live in a part of the world where our governments have evolved to recognise the universal human right to love whoever we want. And I’m truly grateful for the advancement in government policies that have allowed and legally supported my marriage to David. This has brought us both tremendous comfort and happiness.

Respectfully,

Elton John
