Bisexuals find themselves erased in history. Many famous people―such as Marlene Dietrich, June Jordan, Freddie Mercury, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Walt Whitman―have been labeled as lesbian or gay for their same-sex relationships, yet their long-term relationships with different-sex partners are ignored or their importance minimized. This disrespects the truth of their lives for the sake of a binary conception of sexual orientation. It also makes it more difficult for bisexuals just coming out to find role models.
Yes, Freddie Mercury had relationships with both women and men and described himself as bisexual. He tended to have more relationships with men as he got older but he never called himself anything but bi.
I was amazed to know that Freddie Mercury was bi and thought it said it all about bisexual erasure. Then I told three friends how surprised I was and got two “oh, didn’t you know”s and one “yeah, doesn’t surprise me”. And these are not friends who are super involved in queer politics either, in fact two of them are strongly IDd as straight and would start shuffling nervously if I brought up queer politics. So now I’m very confused.
