Earlier this week, singer Elton John released his book Love is the Cure: On Life, Loss and the End of AIDS. In it, John recounts his own life and career during the height of the AIDS crisis and how the death of Ryan White both devastated and charged the singer to take a stand against the epidemic. This led to the creation of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
“This is a disease that must be cured not by a miraculous vaccine, but by changing hearts and minds, and through a collective effort to break down social barriers and to build bridges of compassion. Why are we not doing more? This is a question I have thought deeply about, and wish to answer-and help to change-by writing this book,” John wrote.
We have two copies of Love to giveaway. How do you get one? We want to know what you would ask Elton John if you had five minutes to chat with him? Whether about his career, his advocacy or even his fun feud with Madonna, what would you want to know about the legendary gay icon? Send your questions to me here with “I Want Elton” in the subject line and winners will be selected on Monday. That gives you the whole weekend to think about it.
