Freddie Mercury's 9 (gay) lovers/boyfriends until Jim Hutton and their stories ♥ (Aids, Homophobia)

Publicat pe 7 iun. 2019
Last time I reupload this video (I promise), but someone corrected the info about Tony Bastin in the comment section. He was with Freddie til summer of 1980, not 1981 as it was said in my old video. Do you want a single video on one of those relationships? (for example one being entirely about Winnie Kirchberger with more info?)
Reason for this video: Again, I want people to understand that Freddie was not just someone who had countless emotionless one night stands, he also looked for love and a relationship.

  • I’ve never written of this before and I tend to file the past away deeply as a coping mechanism but today I was listening to “Bohemian Rhapsody” for the million-umpth time and a memory suddenly came to mind. I remembered the first time I met Freddie Mercury at a post-Saint Party in “The Shepherd House”, a large co-op apartment complex in the West Village, NYC. It was 1981, I was 20 years old and in my junior year at Parsons. It was snowing lightly that bitter, mid-winter morning and the ground was frozen & dusted when we arrived after a night of dancing and partying with my usual close circle of friends, all older than myself. Across the room I could sense someone watching me intently through the smoke which hung like a thick curtain above the crowd of party revelers. After several minutes I glanced over and saw Freddie Mercury he instantly donned a huge smile, his teeth making him instantly recognizable but in no way detracting from his attractiveness. He then got up and came over to chat. Freddie Mercury was actually coming over to speak to me! “Do you know who I am?” he asked quite casually. “Of course you’re Freddie Mercury, I’ve been a huge fan of yours since ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ aired in 1975. I was 15 then and thought you and Queen were brilliant!” I spoke honestly and frankly and Freddie beamed. We chatted for a while and he seemed amazed that anyone could actually be “from NYC”. The apartment was a large duplex with a spiral staircase but it was becoming increasingly crowded as groups of guys mostly from The Saint continued to arrive. The inclement weather outside made the night seem to linger well into the midmorning hours. Suddenly during our convo he took me off guard by remarking that I was “the handsomest man at the party” and that he saw me dancing earlier at the club and that I danced well. I remember blushing bright crimson and looking down at the ground at which point Freddie put his hand on the back of my neck and squeezed gently, “I’ve never seen a man blush like that before, how old are you?” he asked. Since the age of seventeen I was able to sport a large moustache which was my ticket into Studio54 underage back in the day, the “clone” look was also in fashion then “I’m twenty”. With that he sat back and regarded me with curiosity. “You act much older, you’re quite mature ...but I guess kids who grow up in NYC mature rather quickly...?” It was half a comment - half a question & I stumbled over my answer saying something like “probably” and blushing again, it was an uncontrollable habit I had when complimented, one I would soon outgrow. Being reared in the shadow of a much older brother considered an “adonis” in the family I had never really considered my looks, hindsight is 20/20. Here I was sitting talking with one of the world’s greatest music icons who along with David Bowie, EltonJohn, Aerosmith and a few other bands had comprised my musical listening repertoire throughout my teen years up until then. I was completely floored by his genuine openness and felt unusually relaxed in his company, significantly more so than in the company of any other “celebrity” I’d met until then. After a short time he asked if I was seeing anyone. “Yes, I’ve had a partner since 18 and we’re completely monogamous.” I could see the disappointment in his eyes. “Is he with you here at the party?” Freddie asked, his eyes scanning the crowd with the hopes of sizing up his competition. “No, he’s in Europe ” I replied, “he travels often for business.“ Freddie responded in genuine disbelief ”how could he let you out of his sight?“ I proceeded to tell him how after just a short time together my lover was my pillar of strength through the death of both my parents, an extremely dark period in my young life. I saw the empathy and sorrow cloud his handsome features “I’m very sorry for your loss, he’s a lucky man to have you” his sincerity was genuine. Not knowing his relationship history I sensed he had not yet been quite as lucky in love and I immediately felt a great deal of compassion for him. “I’ll tell you a secret” I whispered bending in toward him as he lowered his head a bit to listen. “If I were single I’d be on you like white on rice! You’re amazing Freddie, everyone I know is in love with your music and frankly I can’t believe I’m talking with you here and now!” This brought the smile instantly back to his face and I saw him make a self-conscious gesture trying to bring his upper lip over his front teeth, almost as if meaning to hide them. I felt obliged to say “never do anything to your smile Freddie, it makes you unique, it makes you Freddie Mercury!” Once again he smiled widely, then he leaned forward slightly and kissed my forehead. I feel fortunate to have met such a kind, gentle, amazing man who was not bloated with a ten-ton ego. He didn’t just “blow me off” because I wouldn’t go to bed with him. I say that was the first time I met him because there were several other instances I made his acquaintance; at another post-Saint party also at the “Shepherd House” and at a party in the “Old Bank Building” on Union Square. Several floors housed the Parsons’ dorms at that time. There any one of a plethora of artists, musicians, entertainers, writers or creative types from the early 80’s New York avant garde “scene” might wander in during any given party. That being said during every pursuant meeting Freddie regarded me as a friend and always had a moment to stop and say hello. In addition during the first two years of “The Saint’s” operation and at several other NYC nightlife venues when we would bump into each other he always had a kind word and a compliment. Even in the dark he sensed I’d blush and lower my eyes. I assume he found my youthful awkwardness charming because he would grab the back of my neck, gently, give a little squeeze and his smile would brighten the darkness like a beacon. Nobody at that time fathomed that within the next decade we would find ourselves having witnessed the decimation of entire circles of friends, colleagues, lovers and loved ones to the most heinous plague in recent history; the “Gay Plague” as it would become known. The dreaded AIDS virus was to claim so many of the world’s most brilliant and talented innovators and no one among the small percentage in the gay community who did not seroconvert would remain unscathed. The end of the last century arrived minus legions of creative geniuses, Freddie Mercury sadly among those struck down at the height of their lives and careers. They say as long as you remember a person they live on and do not die until you leave this earthly plane. I’m genuinely happy Freddie eventually found true love during the final years of his all too brief life. Freddie’s legacy will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of his millions of admiring fans and especially in those fortunate enough to have known him for however briefly. His dedication to his craft, his sheer talent and the joy he and Queen brought to so many who still enjoy their music ensure Freddie Mercury a place in history for the foreseeable future. There will never be another Freddie Mercury and the world is that much the less for his loss. David T. Vento

    • Wow I am just touched, I never really thought about that side of Freddie that he would just have such a gentle personality thank you dearly for that that really filled my heart with just happiness that you were fortunate enough to share your beautiful encounter with Freddie. So thank you so much for this❤️

    • By the way you sound like a remarkable human being as well. Wishing you well.

    • I was going to add how beautiful your story and writing is, really touching! Glad others noticed too. Please write and publish. You are a great storyteller. I have been told so myself and have been playing around with the idea of writing about a great person I know well. Your style seems so familiar... please write...

    • David Vento You could of caught AIDS count you're blessings!!!

    • Cool story bro

  • Dont have a sex with rondom people. Just marry. God blesses Marrying.

  • very interestinv video but Jim Hutton died of aids as well, or better it was pneumonia which was due to his hiv status

  • It should be a little change in the title of this video because of Mary.

  • Nobody: Jim Hutton Put my hands there and I’ll thump ya”

  • Freddie are you serious? In love with a dude 😳

  • “Freddie used to call Jim his husband.” Historians:”and they were ROOMATES!”

  • Respect David's choice. Need more like him today ❤️

  • Why,why cant god give a complete life to the brilliant ones.extreme talent & extreme lives.poor mj,freddie,& theres a whole lot out there.cant comprehend.

  • Dirty dirty gay mova fuk we and Jews hate guys dirty dirty dirty gets

  • Wat a pity, a man leaving a woman for sexual relations with a man, if it was the right thing, why was he afraid it will be discovered .

  • Just when he found the love that he was waiting for, that's when it just went onto the river of history. I hope the years of his relationship hutton was spent well.

  • Ima be honest i ship him with mary in the movie

  • they all look like him

  • Aids : akibat intim dengan silit

  • Mary martin was very selfish

  • Good looking man he need a real woman.peace brother to each his own God bless your soul,

  • Tony betrayed Freddie?!! Morgan!! how could you possibly find someone better than Freddie to betray him? were u guys nuts?

  • how we lost freddie *AIDS* he figet with the boys butt whole too much

  • Women and men made him very unhappy he was just very lost soul! Good singer but very lonely soul he needed God, in his heart!🙏😡😢 Does anyone know how his childhood was?💔 Very sad he sleeped with women as well as men!🤬 Died of HIV...I seen his videos he was very unhappy..

  • He should have stayed with Mary, had several kids with her - thus he would have had all the love and devotion he needed. So sad that he chose that lifestyle. He was a sweet, kind, generous person and could still be around, giving us lots of good music, lots of love to his kids and grandkids, but no, he had to go this destructive way. It was known since 1978 that to engage in what he engaged in causes Aids and thus a terrible death. So sad !!

  • Im crying became Freddie Mercury has the most beautiful soul, i fell inlove with his songs and him all over again and even more.

  • 😊

  • He has a very specific type. There are recurring features of the guys he dated.

  • what a sodomy style are hit this world

  • Pure Genius....

  • Wait, Freddie was gay ?!

  • Sick!

  • Its a shame he turned gay

  • Sad

  • Such a classy , fine, talented musician and special man. So sad he died and suffered through the aids illness. R.i.p Freddie Mercury

  • GRAHAM SIMPSON LOL

  • People should understand that having sex with many partners can cause both physical and mental illness. FM is a genius and ignorance at the same time.

  • Un om deosebit de minunat cu un suflet mare si prea putin noroc. Nu te vom uita niciodata Freddie!!!

  • The part when Freddie was being abused was sad

  • If he married Mary..they would have children... N have legacy.. but he choose arse... Feel sorry for him

    • I think Freddie has more legacy than most human beings. Almost all people are forgotten decades after their death, but Freddie is still loved by millions of people.

  • Poor guy

  • I cried every time they mentioned Freddie crying. That’s really a heart breaking picture in my head. And the one where that ass left his hands bloodied, that’s so awful. I honestly don’t understand how those lovers could’ve been so terrible towards him. All Freddie wanted was love. But I am still happy that he ended up with Jim. I am so grateful he found a great love that took care of him when he was ill, went on tour with him and was able to move in with him. Bless Freddie and Jim! Go pride! Never hide it.

  • Tuman

  • So for Freddie I say to you all: GO FUCK YOURSELVES !!!

  • THESE PICTURES WERE NOT YOUR BUSINESS WHEN HE WAS ALIVE AND THEY CERTAINLY THE HELL AREN'T YOUR BUSINESS NOW THAT HE IS DEAD !!!

    • What are you talking about? Is English your first language? the reason I ask is because well if it is your first language then I guess you're just stupid. For one thing what are you talking about when you say "they"? "they" I presume are the people on here watching and commenting on the video ( and not the way I commented on it). They don't need to say it by watching it and then commenting like oh I miss him so much blah blah blah well that qualifies for them making it their business. Are you following me here?

    • Steve Cremer they never said it was??

  • I don't think Freddie would appreciate you all looking at his private life like you're some sort of intimate friend

  • Rest In Peace Inshallah Freddie, you may have died but your beautiful music will always resonate throughout the 4 corners of the world forever, that's how much people love you and miss you Freddie. May God forgive you for your sins and transgressions and may your soul now be in Paradise, we all love you and miss you!! R.I.P 💖🌹🙏😇🌹💖

  • thank you freddie dearest -- i don't think anyone replied to that -- i was surprised -- for me it was the truth

  • Condoms must invented in 1900s so many lives and gay couples live longer like them. My uncle is gay and had a boyfriend but they didn't do gay sex because AIDS/HIV related diseases as human is ruining with is a madness next to Paralysis Diseases. www.avert.org/about-hiv-aids/what-hiv-aids

  • I think what we get from all this is that Freddie had a good and big heart

  • Love really is a complicated thing

  • Jim lived a long life until 2010 he died of lung cancer at 60 . Didn’t even know they had medication for HIV back in the 90s . If only Freddie and his other ex lovers had treatment they would still be alive today . Freddie looked really happy with Jim he finally didn’t have to hide who he was anymore . I’m guessing his parents didn’t approve of this then as Mary was his fake girlfriend . But he couldn’t help who he was .

  • I never been a fan of him, but after watching Bohemian rhapsody, I've got a feeling that I really love this man, I've got a feeling that I understand and know him soo well. So beautiful lyrics in his songs, So delicate soul he had..R.I.P

    • @Julia Julia I couldn't bring myself to even see the movie. There's no way an actor could pull off being FM successfully, not in my eyes anyway.

  • So freddie mercury is guy😠😠😠😤

  • Freddie's voice was just so utterly beautiful and unique. So sad he's gone. Never to be replaced by anyone :-(

  • If Freddie stick with a pussy he may still be alive today.

  • لو انه عاش مثل الرجال لما اصابه الايذز. الله يحفظنا يا رب العالمين

  • I just knew that freddie is gay lol

  • They all have the same moustaches loooool

  • What about Paul they used to date before he betrayed Freddie

  • fucked (so what?) up/title ♥ (i don't care what sex Freddie's lover were, he was entitled happiness)

  • he certainly had a look that he liked !!! no pretty boys for Freddie !!!
