Elton is praising Russell T Davies’ Channel 4 drama It’s A Sin for its ”incredibly moving account” of the AIDS crisis in the 1980s.
The drama, which stars synth-pop trio Years & Years vocalist Olly Alexander, follows the lives of four friends living together as the HIV/AIDS crisis emerges in the UK.
On Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/eltonjohn/), the pop veteran wrote:
”Watching it, so many sad and devastating memories came flooding back. Many people were callous, ignorant and cruel.Thank God we have come so far since then.
”Hats off to Russell T Davies on creating this moving testament to a pivotal and important moment in LGBTQ history.”
He added: ”The cast are sublime. Congratulations all round. A triumph of creativity and humanity.”
