The Mercury bio sounds like that old MGM musical "Words and Music" about Lorenz Hart which excluded any mention of his homosexuality but that was made in 1940's

"Freddie Mercury Biopic Will Not Mention HIV/AIDS"

"Harvey Milk Biopic Will Not Mention Assassination"
"Ellen Degeneres Biopic Will Not Mention Coming Out"
"Barney Frank Biopic Will Not Mention Politics"

I had no intention of seeing this movie anyhow--I always really detested Queen and its cheap, crappy music--so I can't claim that this decision will make me boycott the film.

I wonder if the filmmakers will go whole hog, and give Mercury a loyal movie wife and a couple of cute movie children.

And don't forget "Night and Day," Warner Brothers' highly selective 1946 Cole Porter biopic, which not only managed to overlook Porter's bisexuality, but threw in a "straight" Monty Woolley for good measure.

In the 40s, there were no atheists in the foxholes, and no gays in the Hollywood musicals.
