Hello darlings!
I know this may seem silly but...
I hardly know much about Freddie and how he coped with his friends, family and the media at the point where he had doubts about his sexuality.
How did he confront these people and tell them?... I hardly know how any of it unfolded.
All i know is that he told Mary Austin firstly and this is how they decided to just become friends.
How did the media react and how did others react?

I, for one, am still in denial.

Well, I think hanging out in gay clubs, walking in with a different guy every night, and maybe the odd drizzle of missed jizz on the chin may have clued people in over time...


Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!

Apparently,darling,Freddie neither confirmed nor denied his sexuality in his lifetime. When questioned by the Press,he would give his usual answers,such as,"I've had pleasant experiences with both men and women" or "I'm gay as a daffodil,my dear".

Neither am i. I think if you love someone truly then you don't have to show everyone you do at a wedding.
They should just know... i only go to weddings for the cake... :D

Nor should you, it was a private matter (probably before you were born).

Why does it matter?
