Elton John And David Furnish To Marry

Now that marriage equality has finally arrived in England and Wales, Elton John and David Furnish are starting to make plans to get married later this year. The two have been in a civil union since 2005.

Writing in Attitude magazine, Furnish explains the significance of marriage to his family:

John_Furnish"When it was announced that gay couples were able to obtain a civil partnership, Elton and I did so on the day it came into law.

"As something of a showman, [Elton] is aware that whatever he says and does, people will sit up and take notice -so what better way to celebrate that historic moment in time.

"Our big day made the news, it was all over the internet within minutes of happening and front page news the next day."

He continued: "Elton and I both think there is a massive difference between calling someone your 'partner' and calling them your 'husband'. "Partner' is such an impersonal word and doesn't adequately describe the love we have for each other.

"When Zachary and Elijah are grown up and having children of their own, they will – hopefully – be living in a world where everyone can be equal, when being married isn't about whether you're straight or gay, but simply about being human."

Furnish told the the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he and John plan to ditch plans for a big bash:

“We do like big parties,” Furnish said. “Over eight years ago, we had 650 people on the 21st of December at our house in Windsor. But with the kids, everything is different. I think what we’ll do is go to a registry office in England in May, and take the boys with us, and a couple of witnesses.”

The two plan to tie the knot in May.

Elton John and David Furnish Welcome Second Child

Elton John and David Furnish are the proud parents of another baby boy, they confirmed to Hello! magazine.

The child was born on January 11 in L.A., via a surrogate.

Said the couple: "Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable. The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."


Elton John and David Furnish Expecting Second Child

Elton John and David Furnish are expecting their second child, UK tabloid The Sun reports:

Furnish_johnA surrogate for the Rocket Man singer and hubby David is due to give birth next year, The Sun can exclusively reveal. Last night a source close to the pair said: “Elton and David love this lady like a sister and they feel indebted to her for life. Naturally she has been well rewarded. But her identity will never be revealed.” The mum — believed to have been recruited via the Center for Surrogate Parenting in Encino, California — is said to be already “several months” pregnant. Zachary will have turned two by the time his sibling arrives.


Elton John Demands Marriage Equality in the UK

Elton John, who in 2008 publicly criticized marriage equality advocates in California for fighting for the word "marriage" and not settling for civil partnerships, has changed his tune, writing in The Independent:

John_furnishI know a lot of people, and perhaps especially religious people, will say that David and I should count ourselves lucky for living in a country that allows civil partnerships, and call it quits there. In most countries around the world, gay people aren't just disallowed from coming together in a legal sense; they are actually persecuted by governments because of their sexuality. Maybe we should just be happy that we at least have a civil partnership, and not push our luck.

Well, I don't accept this. I don't accept it because there is a world of difference between calling someone your "partner" and calling them your "husband". "Partner" is a word that should be preserved for people you play tennis with, or work alongside in business. It doesn't come close to describing the love that I have for David, and he for me. In contrast, "husband" does. A "husband" is somebody that you cherish forever, that you would give up everything for, that you love in sickness and in health. Until the law recognises David Furnish is my husband, and not merely my partner, the law won't describe the man I know and adore.


David Furnish: 'Integrity' of Golden Globes Must Be 'Questioned' After Madonna's Win Over Elton

Elton John's husband David Furnish had more to say to the NY Post about Madonna's Golden Globe win:

Carson_ej“I think it was a fluke . . . When this happens you have to question the integrity of the awards. Did Madonna get the Golden Globe because she attended the awards and agreed be a presenter? Can you sing Madonna’s song? Can you hum it? It’s a song nobody has heard, from a film few have seen. The award should have gone to Mary J. Blige or Elton. I like Madonna’s music, but not her movies. She should stick to what she is good at.”

(via boy culture)

On Sunday, Furnish took to his Facebook to rip Madonna following the win after Elton's embarrassing red carpet statement that “Madonna hasn’t got a f**king chance."
