Elton John recently spoke out against those that continue to stigmatize AIDS, calling them “fascists” and “idiots.” He said, “If we can de-stigmatise this disease once and for all, we are really going to beat this disease.”

Sir Elton has put those sentiments into a new book, due to hit stores in July, called “Love Is the Cure: Ending the Global AIDS Epidemic,” according to The Guardian. It is John’s first book and will focus on the need to end the stigmatization of people suffering from AIDS. The singer writes, “[Aids] is a disease that must be cured not by a miraculous vaccine, but by changing hearts and minds, and through a collective effort to break down social barriers and to build bridges of compassion.” The book will also include John’s memories of friends that have passed away from the disease including Freddie Mercury and teen activist Ryan White.

John says, “Why are we not doing more? This is a question I have thought deeply about, and wish to answer – and to help change – by writing this book.” Proceeds from the book sales will go to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which has been providing HIV prevention programs, direct patient care and public education for twenty years.

The singer is also working on a biopic, which he hopes will star Justin Timberlake as himself.
