Indeed. Watch Rocketman, which, while it’s a fictionalization, was made with Sir Elton’s blessing, and gives a sense for just how out-of-control he was, particularly in the '70s and early '80s.
He cleaned up his act as he got older, and became happily monogamous, but he very likely did dodge a bullet, especially as it seems like the height of his period of out-of-control behavior coincided with the period in which HIV was spreading through the gay community, but wasn’t yet understood, and “safe sex” to avoid passing/catching HIV wasn’t yet a thing.
This is unabashed backhanded hate speech, in my view. The notion that simply because a man is gay, he is destined to become infected with HIV, is offensive and wrong. I find it more egregious because you attempted to couch your assertion in “friendly” speech.
