Elton John edits UK newspaper for World AIDS Day
Question of the Day
LONDON (AP) - Elton John has turned newspaper editor, overseeing an edition of Britain’s The Independent to mark World AIDS Day.
Wednesday’s paper features more than a dozen pages of stories related to the fight against HIV, including contributions from some of John’s famous friends, including Elizabeth Taylor, Stephen Fry and Bill Clinton.
In an editorial, John highlights progress in the battle against the disease, noting that there has been “a 25 percent drop in new infections across the worst-affected countries since 2001.”
The newspaper’s front page is taken up by a painting of red roses by British artist Gary Hue.
The newspaper said revenue from Wednesday’s edition will go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
