But he does support the Russian people...
Billboard reports that Elton John will support the Russian people, who he says still accept him even with the company's new "gay propaganda" law, which bans promotion of "non-traditional sexual relations" to minors.
He said that he visited Russia in December and was worried about how the law would affect him as "an openly gay foreigner." However, he still received a pleasant reaction from the Russian people.
John added that the law has legitimized "vicious homophobia" against gay Russians. He said it was "deeply dangerous" to the LGBT community and "deeply divisive" to the Russian people. He said he could introduce Russian President Vladimir Putin to gay Russians to help promote understanding.
