Sir Elton John says he feels “lucky” to have escaped the 80s AIDS crisis.
The realization comes after John watched the HBO Max show, “It’s A Sin.” “It didn’t change my life but it made me realize how lucky I was to escape all that and to be reminded of what happened,” said John. The show follows three young men who go to London in 1981 and are challenged by a new virus that many ignore.
John was so impressed by the cast of “It’s A Sin,” that he vowed upon his return to London he wanted to have the cast and director, Russell T. Davies over for dinner.
Elton John has long been an advocate for those living with HIV/AIDS and last year launched a $1 million fund to help those living with the virus during the coronavirus pandemic.
