Ukraine has 'long way to go' on gay rights: Elton John

Sir Elton John delivers a speech about tolerance and equal rights for all during 12th Yalta European Strategy forum in Kiev on September 12, 2015Veteran British rock star Elton John on Saturday said Ukraine still had “a long way to go” in its treatment of the gay, bisexual and transgender community at a conference in Kiev. “I tell you with great sadness that right here, in this very city earlier this summer, a simple and modest gay pride parade had to be organised at a secret location to try to prevent hooligans from disrupting it and committing violence against the celebrants,” he said. The singer, who has two sons with husband David Furnish and is a veteran campaigner on gay rights, urged Ukraine to seek ways to promote the rights of those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT).
