If you like music, you should know that the people above are Queer!

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) my favourite compositor is Gay! Recentle on his letters, censured, it was confirmed his homossexuality: ” Oh my god what a angelical criature, i would love to be his slave, toy property”. Chicago’s Boystown decided to create a site sculpture memorial in honor to Tchaikovsky. Tchaikovsky is best known for incredible musics, with pure and soft stages, that elevate us to heaven.

Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) wrote love letters to  Tytus Wojciechowski. Michel Lariviera, the researcher, confirms that Chopin had a lot of boyfriends, spacially Marquis de Custine.

Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) my favourite xxi century compositor. Benjamin Britten was married with Peter Pears for many years. Listen to his songe from “Peter Grimes” Opera, Four Sea Interludes.

Georg Friedrich Händel (1685-1759) was gay! Yes, it´s true, the religious songs were made by a gay men. “Hallelujah” song. On his book “Händel as Orpheus” by Ellen T. Harris we find references to his gay closet. Händel never had been with a woman.

Franz Schubert (1797-1828) was bissexual, says Maynard Solomon. He was with a gay poet Johann Mayrhofer and had sent many gay letters to Franz von Schober.

Beethoven (1770-1827) never met a woman.  Rictor Norton says on – “Your Breeches” Button Beethoven and his Nephew Karl – where he also says that he had a relation with Ferdinand Ries.

John Cage (1912–1992) artist and compositor, was in a relation with Don Sample. Cage is best known forcriou a famosa música 4’33” and “Dream”.
