New York: Elton John has accused US of treating gay people like `second-class citizens’.
The 63-year-old gay singer took a stand last week during a performance at a private Beverly Hills fundraiser for the ongoing legal challenge to California’s gay marriage ban, reports a daily.
“As I get older, I get more angry about it,” said the English singer-songwriter, composer and pianist, who became a parent to a baby boy on Christmas Day with partner David Furnish.
“In this country, we need more dialogue.”
"We don’t need any more stone throwing. We don’t need any more vitriol. We need people to say, ``OK. I’m straight. You’re gay. Let’s get along. I’m Republican. You’re Democratic. Let’s work together.`` I’m sick and tired of people being hateful to each other in this country,” John added.
