Sir Elton John is to celebrate 25 years of the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF).

The singer, pianist and entertainer has found global fame for his performing, with millions going to see his live shows around the world.

But for the past quarter of a century he has also dedicated a huge amount of time to tackling the stigma against HIV AIDS and helping those with the infection.

The US not-for-profit was created in 1992, and established a year later in the UK.

It has been recognised as the “largest HIV funder of programmes for transgender people.”

The organisation is now set to mark its 25 year anniversary in a huge New York show.

Neil Patrick Harris is set to host, along with special guest Aretha Franklin.

Celeb guests and speakers include President Bill Clinton, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, Sharon Stone, among a long list of other high-profile stars.

“At this time of great uncertainty in the world, EJAF’s work is more important than ever,” EJAF Executive Director Scott Campbell said.

“After 25 years, EJAF remains steadfastly committed to addressing the unmet needs of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and fighting stigma as a major driver of the global AIDS epidemic.
