Gays in the Military: Elton John and David Furnish


Elton John and David Furnish stepped out in military regalia recently, but they weren't intending to protest U.S. policy. They were off to attend artist Sam Taylor-Wood's 40th birthday:

"While Sir Elton - who is also celebrating his 60th birthday - looked as if he was getting ready to inspect the May Day parade on Red Square, his partner David Furnish came in a US Marine captain's dress uniform, proving that yes, it really is true what they have been saying - the Cold War IS over."

  1. Shouldn't that read "husband," they did have a civil union didn't they?

  5. LOL. Nope.

    The UK has legalized civil unions between same-sex partners. Marriage, as a term and legal status has not been legalized for same-sex, I'd have to go with Andy's reference.

  6. Elton is such an annoying pantsload, but congrats on their nuptials.

  7. Elton looks like he eats like a soviet general too. Very amusing.

  8. I saw that picture and immediately thought this post was going to be about Madame Tussauds.

  9. nycredneck, a civil union is NOT a marriage, not even close.

  10. They are both hideously unattractive.

  11. I would refer to General Pace's comment above. The serendipity of this picture and his words are apt to make me rethink "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

    Not really but who wants Elton John guarding anything, especially food?

  12. David is good-looking. You must not have eyes "bears are fat".

  14. "partner" was the term used by The Daily Mail. Andy was just quoting. If you're gonna nit pick, check the source.

  15. Would someone please tell Elton to fade away gracefully? Who gives a flying f-ck what he and his thing are wearing!?

  16. And we wonder why so many people are against The Gays?? Look at these two!! They should be on Jerry Springer!

  17. Elton is sooo fat he won't be able to squeeze into his trunk!

  18. Elton looks like a caricature there. David, on the other hand, looks really sharp!
