Elton John Launches Campaign To End LGBTQ+ Discrimination And Stigma

The Elton John AIDS Foundation has launched a campaign, called “Speak Up Sing Out,” seeking an end to LGBTQ+ discrimination and stigma.

Harnessing the influential voice of its founder, Elton John, the Foundation aims to unite communities through the power of social media. It encourages individuals to participate by sharing a heartfelt rendition of the final verse of Elton’s timeless anthem, “Your Song,” along with naming an individual who has supported them on their journey towards self-acceptance.

As a special thank you for speaking up, one lucky participant and a guest will get an opportunity to meet Elton and David Furnish in New York City during Pride Month.

Potential aspirants must follow these steps on Instagram: Post a reel (vertical video) singing a lyric from “Your Song” and nominate the individual who has inspired you to embrace your true self (The lyrics are “I hope you don’t mind, I hope you don’t mind, that I put down in words how wonderful life is while you’re in the world.”); Tag a person in your caption who has always supported you to be your authentic self; Use the hashtag #SpeakUpSingOutGiveaway; and Follow the Elton John AIDS Foundation on Instagram: @ejaf.

“Living boldly and fearlessly is what I strive for every day, but I know firsthand the importance of having a support system that empowers you to do so-a privilege I’m immensely grateful for,” said Elton John.
