Freddie Mercury: INCREDIBLE thing Queen legend told Mary Austin when he revealed sexuality:

Maybe it’s not so much that Bi Guys don’t Come Out. Perhaps it’s more that no one listens when they do. Maybe it’s just that after a while  Bi Men stop trying and eventually shut up —

Recalling the eventual conversation in which he [ed note: Mary Austin’s then fiance, the late rock-star Freddie Mercury] told her he was bisexual, she told the Daily Mail in 2013: “I’ll never forget that moment. Being a bit naive, it had taken me a while to realise the truth.”

“Afterwards he felt good about having finally told me he was bisexual,” she added. “Although I do remember saying to him at the time, ‘No Freddie, I don’t think you are bisexual. I think you are gay.’”

I have met hundreds of bisexuals and when the question of being out as bi+ on the gay scene comes up, everyone agrees: being denied a voice is bad enough but being denied our existence is appalling.

If you don’t like Mozart, it doesn’t mean some other people are lying when they say they really do. Some people really like aubergines, some people really enjoyed cross-country running at school – some people really do enjoy the things you don’t. Some people really are bisexual.

The definition is easy, it’s the prejudice that’s hard.
