Elton John menaces Tobago

Could turn island gay, archdeacon claims

Sir Elton John may be banned from performing a forthcoming gig on the Caribbean island of Tobago for fears the musical Friend of Dorothy could turn the whole place gay, The Sun reports.

Sir Elton is slated to take to the stage at a jazz festival in April, but his imminent arrival has ruffled a few feathers on an island where homosexuality is "widely condemned".

Archdeacon Philip Isaac warned: "His visit can open the country to be tempted towards pursuing his lifestyle. He needs to be ministered to."

Festival organiser Anthony Maharaj countered: "He is coming as one of the world's greatest performers - not to preach about what lifestyle people should have." ®
