Chelsea Clinton has written a powerful essay on Elton John's book about AIDS, Love Is The Cure.

“Shame, prejudice, homophobia and sexism all fuel the stigma of AIDS in developing and developed countries alike,” she wrote in The LA Times. "As John describes his own reckoning with the new faces of the global AIDS pandemic through travels for his foundation, he makes it clear that these matters are both personal and political.

“Change is hard. “Love Is the Cure” recognizes that. As John has said in poetry and prose, compassion is the key — for individuals, and for our global community. His book provides examples of incredible compassion — matched by economics and politics — that collectively are helping to change the trend lines of the AIDS epidemic."
