Elton John Evaluates ‘It’s A Sin’ As A Moving Testament In LGBTQ History

The legendary English singer and composer, Elton John, shared the poster of a new drama show named ‘It’s A Sin‘ on his Instagram, which tells the story of a group of friends living in London when the AIDS crisis occurred in the U.K. in the 1980s.

The new drama series has a five-episode story and it is written by Russell T Davies, who got the inspiration from his real-life experiences as a gay man living in the U.K. in the early 80s. The series also features well-known names such as Neil Patrick Harris and Stephen Fry.

Elton John took Instagram to praise the series as he remembered many sad and devastating memories from the past while watching the show. In his own words:

“It’s A Sin is an incredibly moving account of the arrival of AIDS in the U.K. in the 1980s. Watching it, so many sad and devastating memories came flooding back.”

The legendary musician was also glad that the country has come a long way since then and said:

“Many people were callous, ignorant and cruel. Thank God we have come so far since then.”

He also described the series as a triumph of creativity and humanity while thanking all the cast and crew for their amazing work in LGBTQ history as follows:

“Hats off to @russelltdavies63 on creating this moving testament to a pivotal and important moment in LGBTQ history. The cast are sublime. Congratulations all round. A TRIUMPH of creativity and humanity.”

Elton John is also a well-known musician who founded the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 1992 to battle the widespread disease. The foundation raised over $125 million to support programs in 55 countries around the world since it’s established.
