ELTON John is ‘gay and proud’ as he accepts UK LGBT award
Sir Elton John, 73, was applauded for his moving and outspoken speech as he and her husband, David Furnish, 58, accepted the Global Impact Award at the British LGBT Awards. The musical legend has accepted the reward digitally from the home he shares with Furnish due to Covid-19 restrictions.
He said: “This has been an unprecedented year and we know that some of the hardest hit people and communities are those of the LGBT community.
“You are isolated, live in fear or in violence because of who they are and who they love, and it is incredibly difficult.”
He added, “We believe more than anything that you deserve the right to choose who you love and to love yourself for who you are, no matter where in the world you are.”
Sir Elton concluded: “Thank you very much for the recognition and honor this evening and we promise that we will not stop. Say it loud, I’m gay and I’m proud.
Furnish added: “We are proud to work right here at home in the UK for this community as well as in over 25 countries around the world.
