Elton is contributing to a new illustrated book which fetes LGBTQ+ people and their history.
He has penned an essay about the late drag performer Divine for The Queer Bible, edited by model and writer Jack Guinness. David Furnish, Russell Tovey and Graham Norton are among the other participants.
Guinness said of the essay collection, to be published on June 10, that it's ''a moving and inspiring experience for our readers. It connects LGBTQ+ people with their proud history, with the legends who went before us, making our lives possible.
''For our allies, the book welcomes you into the queer experience. We celebrate difference and uniqueness while reinforcing our shared history. So many rich, varied, diverse lives entwine to create our community, our history, and our shared narrative.''
