  1. A noble gesture, Sir Elton, and will hopefully make for some sympathetic press. I can’t see it having any real effect. Putin’s evil mind will not be so easily changed on this matter. He can hardly seen to be influenced by a western pop star.

    Seeing as Putin already claims to have gay friends…

    Well done Elton. Only by facing the leadership with ordinary gay people and their lives will society and their leadership see we are ordinary citizens. This should work to stop state sanctioned beatings, outings and job losses, and deaths. Religion kills people.

    Worth trying ! Sir Elton is an honest and positive entertainer. With emotions , guts and fairness.

  5. Well done, Elton. Now let’s hope DOZENS of other international names, people with as great a profile as yourself, will follow suit and bring Putin and his cronies to their senses.

    Yes,Elton,yes!!!

  7. Putin can’t give up his addiction to the kisses he gets from Patriarch Kirill when he does as Kirill commands.

    Putin has only said he does not want children indoctrinated by homosexuality.They should not be told something is normal which we all know clearly is not.Queers get beaten up and murdered in all countries.In central Moscow homo pubs are flagrant.There is one sauna signposted from near Kremlin called Voda but does not say what type of sauna it is .On entering I went down a long plastic tunnel with recesses in semi darkness.At end I saw a man commiting buggery on another in full view of anyone who wanted to watch.
