Dolce and Gabbana: We love gay adoption, we love everything
Fashion designers Dolce and Gabbana have claimed that they “love gay couples” – after making derogatory comments about “non-traditional families”.
Legendary fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana – who are gay themselves – whipped up a storm earlier this week when they lashed out at same-sex adoption, IVF and surrogacy.
Sir Elton John– who has sons Zachary and Elijah with his husband David Furnish – led condemnation of the pair, slamming their “archaic thinking”.
In a new interview with CNN, the fashion legends tried to repair the rift – after days in which they accused Sir Elton of being a “fascist” and refused to apologise.
Gabbana told the network: “We love gay couples… We are gay. We love gay adoption. We love everything. It’s just an express of my private point of view.
Dolce said: “I love the music of Elton John.
“Every people resolve everything by talk… we start to talk, the problem is resolved.
“Every people [has] freedom for choosing what they want. This for me is democracy.
“I respect you because you choose what you want. I respect me because I choose what I want… This just my point of private view.”
Gabbana added: “Boycott Dolce & Gabbana for what? They don’t think like you? This is correct? This is not correct. We are in 2015. This is like medieval. It’s not correct.”
