Freddie in his own words

June 8, 2020   Seraja   6

I thought up the name Queen early on. It couldn’t have been King; it doesn’t have the same ring or aura as Queen. It was a very regal name and it sounded splendid. It’s strong, very universal, and immediate. It had a lot of visual potential and was open to all sorts of interpretations. I feel that the name Queen actually fitted that time. It lent itself to a lot of things, like the theatre, and it was grand. It was very pompous, with all kinds of connotations. It meant so much. It wasn’t just one precise label. I was certainly aware of the gay connotations, but that was just one facet of it.”

I used to go home periodically and turn up in these outrageous clothes and with my fingernails painted black and at that time my mother used to freak out.

“They used to say, ‘My God! Don’t let the neighbours see you. Come in here quick. Use the back door.'”
