"I wanna kiss the groom!"
Here and now I would just like to thank Elton John, whose music I very seldom listen to, for lending his stardom to this very important issue. Homophobia is still out there, but since he “married” his David on the very first day possible, many more newspapers (and blogs) will write about it. And I would also like to think that quite a few people who have been skeptical vis-à-vis same-sex civil partnership will think it over again, since the very-likeable-candle-in-wind-Elton-John was first in line.
So to Elton, David and all you others, congratulations, and let’s continue to fight for an equal society free from homophobia. In England, Wales, Sweden and elsewhere.
(Picture of one of the Elton John records I have heard and liked, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. I think the music of Elton John is a little bit like the music of Billy Joel - the earlier the better).
