In remembrance of Freddie Mercury: a queer musical icon

Today marks the 25th anniversary of Freddie Mercury’s death. Known for his vibrant stage presence and equally enigmatic dress sense, the singer carved his way into pop culture and history like no other.

Many of us recognise Freddie’s musical achievements, but, often, much of that remembrance fails to preserve his truly flamboyant, illustriously camp identity.

There’s no doubt we’re all familiar with Mercury’s 1985 Live Aid performance or Queen’s unforgettable lyrics to hits like Bohemian Rhapsody, but we must also pay homage how, in his final days, the singer brought intense scrutiny on AIDS cases and pushed cultural conversations around the illness.
