Elton John is happy that his sexuality was not erased in Rocketman


Sir Elton John is glad Rocketman creators did not try to hide any aspects of his private life, especially when it came to exploring his sexuality. “I’m so glad [the gay sex scene is] in there because I am a gay man and I didn’t want to airbrush it under the carpet,” Sir Elton shared in the interview with Mirror, “I’m proud Rocketman is the first major studio film with a gay love sex scene in it. If I’d left it out, I’d have felt I was cheating people”. Sir Elton understands that not all watchers are going to get it right and he forgives them for it in advance, but if this scene was not included in the film, it would mean that the huge part of his current personality would be missing there, just because that night was life-changing for him, it was his first intimate experience at the age of 23, and he had a desperate desire of some passionate, sensitive feeling, and when it happened he finally started to feel that there was nothing wrong about him.
