Sir Elton John: We have to make sure that love trumps hate

Nick Duffy November 4, 2016

Ahead of next week’s Presidential election, Sir Elton John has urged people to make sure that “love trumps hate”.

The music legend made the comments at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 15th annual An Enduring Vision gala in New York this week.

Speaking about the Foundation’s work, he said: “We’re not gonna let up because we have an enduring vision — a vision of a more compassionate world, where no one is ever treated as less than, no matter their race, their sexuality or their gender.

“A world where love trumps hate. I knew I’d get the word ‘trump’ in somewhere.”

He added: “We’re not gonna let up because we have an enduring vision — a vision of a more compassionate world, where no one is ever treated as less than, no matter their race, their sexuality or their gender,” he said in his speech. “A world where love trumps hate. I knew I’d get the word ‘trump’ in somewhere.”

Outgoing United Nations secretary-general Ban Ki-moon addressed the event, speaking about the vision for an AIDS-free world, Variety reports.

He said: “We can get there… if my 20-year-old self could see me talking about these issues, he would have been very surprised.

“But I am happy to say I found my voice. And every day more and more people are finding theirs.”
