Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF)’s Chairman David Furnish was recently featured in the Celebrating Pride campaign for the StarMetro Toronto.

“I have been so proud to watch Toronto, and indeed all of Canada, really take the lead in becoming one of the most diverse and inclusive and compassionate nations in the world,” said David in the interview. “Our wonderful young Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has certainly stepped forward and provided outspoken leadership and demonstrated true personal commitment to seeing Canada become a more inclusive country. And the nation, and particularly Toronto, has responded beautifully, reaching out to the LGBT community with the largest Pride celebration in North America. We’ve also opened our hearts and our borders to refugees fleeing persecution and increased our efforts to help people struggling with addiction by providing harm reduction services to help them stay healthy until they can take that brave step into rehabilitation. We can absolutely do even more in these and other areas, but I’m really proud of our country’s leadership and compassion.”
