Whenever people ask me what my fav band is, I, of course, say it's Queen. Their immediate response is," Aren't they gay?" Of course me being VERY tempermantal, I shout back, " NO!! ONLY ONE WAS GAY!!!" then they TELL me taht all of them are dead. you guys know where I'm getting here, right? well thell me what you think about situations like these if you have experienced it as well.

One of my friends told me that the lead singer had a lisp. She didn't know Freddie's name, but she kept insisting he had a lisp. I've never had any gay-bashing, though.

I think you need to find friends that are a little more secure in their own sexuality.

Or, just ignore them.

Either way.

One thing I've tried which works great, is to completely avoid contact with other people except to place orders and stuff.

Let me guess you're from somewhere in America, right? Home of the ignorant.

Roadies: "Yeah! Great Idea!"

Freddie: "And it will fly into a great big mouth with a moustache!"

Its called Ignorance. You get it all with queen.
"I hate queen. They were gay."
"Freddie was pug ugly, wasnt he the one with the teeth?"
"What? They did Another One Bites the Dust?"
"Nah, the best band in the world is S club 7."

I find it useful to just sit there and laugh. Queen fans are the ones in on the facts, the ignorant ones are losing out. Their loss.

Well, ignorance is bliss. To know is to live a condemned life.

thanx for your info, and the person that said i'm from America....your right and everyone here says pretty much the same thing when it comes to Queen, because everyone knows ALL the negatives about them. I just can't believe people are so discrimative toward people, it pisses me OFF!!! Look at this "crazy" world we live in now....too bad I guess.

I get all sorts of crap from my friends about Queen. They wonder why I like them so much when they are from another generation, of course I have to tell them it's because they are the best band in the world. :)I also get a lot of responses like, oh they're gay and dead anyway. It is usually at this point I get completely disgusted and walk away. Most of my friends though don't mind me educating them about Queen, and I have converted most of them. I guess you just have to take the good with the bad sometimes.

I have probably talked about Queen with about 20 people....about 16 out of those 20 had a first reply of "arent they gay?" they are too ignorant to listen to their music,and only focus on the fact that one of them is gay..I think its horid!

In 30 years of listening to Queen, the only derogatory remark I have ever heard from friends or family was concerning Freddie's teeth!

What sickens me is that in 1980 they were probably the biggest band in America.

(okay other things sicken me too, but still....)

YEAH, but what the people who say this don't realise is that a lot of them will probably be fans of bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who's lead singer is gay. these people just don't know what 'music' is


We love you Freddie, R.I.P

Not only in the U.S. Here in the UK things aren't that great. Kids / teenagers are very homophobic - but I think many grow out of it as they mature.

As with Bob, I have been a Queen fan for close to 30 years, and never once has anyone made a negative comment to me about their sexuality, or anything else, for that matter. And yes, I do live in the United States.

The only comments I have received concerning Freddie's sexuality were from English people, surprisingly enough. Where I live it's pretty much accepted or not talked about. And I live in McGreeveyland. Go figure.
