Gayish: 091 Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury, because Freddie Saturn canceled on us. Mike and Kyle talk about Freddie, Queen, HIV/AIDS, the new Rami Malek movie Bohemian Rhapsody, the song Bohemian Rhapsody, and straightwashing. Plus, the potentially rich nuances of Fat Bottomed Girls.

  1. I know I’m like 2 years too late but I’ve become re- obsessed with Freddie. I found some interviews where he proclaimed there he would fuck anyone, that his sex drive was so intense that he was almost indiscriminate in his partner choice for a while. And his love, Mary, wrote that he was quite insatiable sexually. She didn’t go into details but I do believe they fucked during their relationship.

    And then Freddie said “I couldn’t fall in love with a man the way I could with a girl” which could mean a lot honestly. Whether that is his actual emotional feeling or the climate of toxic masculinity (of the time) that precluded men from feeling there was a safe and completely intimate relationship available between two men— I’m not sure. Or, maybe he was specifically referring to the love he had for Mary, which he idolized as ideal for all his days up until his death. In fact, he left her half his estate upon his death!
