ELTON BEYOND THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD

ONE OF THE BIGGEST MUSICAL LEGENDS OF ALL TIME TURNS 70 THIS MONTH. BUT THESE DAYS, ELTON JOHN IS MORE CAPTAIN FANTASTIC THAN MADMAN ACROSS THE WATER. BECAUSE AS WELL AS ROCKING THE WORLD, HE’S CHANGING IT
ILLUSTRATION > PETER ALLISON

Sir Elton John’s career is astonishing. Having sold more than 250 million records, he is officially the most successful male solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100 (third only to The Beatles and Madonna). He has won an Academy Award, five Grammys, five Brits, a Golden Globe, a Tony, a Disney Legends Award, a Kennedy Center Honors and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And, oh, he wrote the music for two of the best-loved shows of all time: The Lion King and Billy Elliot.

But there’s more to Elton’s story than just music. Since the early Nineties his life has taken on new meaning with a focus on giving back through his Aids Foundation, speaking up about gay rights, and managing new acts such as Ed Sheeran, whom he helped make one of the most successful male solo artists in the world today.

About Winq

The latest issue of the newly relaunched Winq features an exclusive interview with AFC Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe, the first Premier League manager to go on the record and say he’d be happy to have a gay footballer in his team. Elsewhere, there are interviews with French film director François Ozon, award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, Olympic dressage rider Spencer Wilton, and Gigi Chao, the Hong Kong lesbian whose father offered millions to any man who could turn her straight. We travel to Japan and Mexico, report on what life is like for LGBT+ people in Ghana, and explore the reasons behind the rising popularity of the far right amongst gay men in France. Packed with insightful commentary from a newly expanded panel of columnists, Winq is the journal for gay gentlemen by Attitude.
