Sir Elton John addressed the 2012 International AIDS Conference in Washington, where he gave the keynote speech. His message, he said, was that everybody deserved the love and care he received.
Elton John - 'Everyone deserves compassion. Everyone deserves dignity. Everyone, everyone, everyone deserves love. Why am I telling you this? Because the AIDS disease is caused by a virus, but the AIDS epidemic is not. The AIDS epidemic is fueled by stigma, violence and indifference.'
