— Freddie Mercury on his sexuality (via fuckyeahmercury)
"Yes, I’m gay. I’ve done all that. I’m as gay as a daffodil, dears. But I couldn’t fall in love with a man the way I could with a girl. I don’t go out to have very gay company, but in this business it’s very hard to find loyal friends and keep them. Among my friends are a lot of gay people and a lot of girls - and a lot of old men too! I move in a theatrical world and people can draw their own connotations from that. I had a girlfriend that I lived with for five years - Mary. I had boyfriends as well. It would destroy all the mystery if I always explained everything about myself. To actually come out with it and go into huge detail about all those things, to be honest, is a bit beneath me. I have maybe a wider sexual taste than most people, but that’s as far as I’m going to go."
