Boy George believes society needs to stop simplifying gay culture.
The 57-year-old singer – who was a pioneer for gay culture in the 80s with his androgynous style of dressing and openness about his homosexuality – believes that “people tend to simplify things” with regards to sexuality and insists that there is “no one type of gay person”, the same as with heterosexual individuals.
“Why do we value people on their sexuality? It’s ridiculous plus it’s always people that it’s got nothing to do with that get upset about it. I’m not the authority on heterosexuality, I don’t claim to be, but I’m also not heterophobic.”
The ‘Karma Chameleon’ singer said: “People are amazing, people have always been amazing – the problem with celebrity and fame is that it kind of gives you sort of a fantasy you can be whatever you want to be because you’re famous. But in everyday society things have changed people are more open minded people talk about things more it’s a great.”
