Was John Lennon Gay? The Real Reason He Fell In Love With Men

John Lennon, the founding member of The Beatles, co-lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist, had a legendary music career that lasted for more than two decades and established him as one of the finest vocalists and composers of all time in the eyes of music critics and fans. Along with his illustrious and significant musical career, Lennon’s personal life has also generated interest, particularly his political engagement and his s*xual orientation, which is frequently described as bis*xual.

Without a doubt, John Lennon’s music career and songwriting collaboration with his bassist bandmate Paul McCartney, which is frequently recognized as one of the most important and flourishing of the 20th century, have helped him establish himself as a memorable icon.

Lennon has sold 14 million albums in the US alone and has 25 number-one hits on the US Hot 100 chart alone.

His publicized political engagement, which was based on the anti-war movement and peace activism, was the fundamental reason his personal life was as sensational as his music career. Fans had frequently questioned John Lennon’s s*xual orientation in addition to his activism, mainly when he spent time alone with the band’s openly gay manager Brian Epstein.

Was John Lennon Bis*xual? Yoko Ono Once Explained

After John Lennon traveled to Spain with the Beatles’ openly homos*xual manager Brian Epstein, who was allegedly attracted to Lennon, shortly after Julian was born on April 8, 1963, fans of the musician began spreading rumors about Lennon’s s*xual orientation even though he had had emotional and s*xual affairs with women and was married to Cynthia Lennon with whom he had a son named Julian Lennon.

John Lennon, Gay

When asked about his vacation with Brian Epstein after the rumors of their relationship started, John Lennon later admitted that it was somewhat of a love affair. However, it wasn’t a fulfilled relationship because the two only hung out as friends while on vacation. Lennon did, however, enjoy the experience of spending time with a gay friend for the first time.

John Lennon said these about his vacation with Epstein:

“Well, it was almost a love affair, but not quite. It was never consummated. But it was a pretty intense relationship. It was my first experience with a homos*xual that I was conscious was homos*xual. We used to sit in a café in Torremolinos looking at all the boys, and I’d say, ‘Do you like that one? Do you like this one?’ I was always enjoying the experience, thinking like a writer: I am experiencing this.”

In an interview with The Daily Beast on October 13, 2015, Yoko Ono discussed the s*xuality suspicions surrounding John Lennon and the reports of an alleged relationship with Brian Epstein. The widow of John Lennon disclosed that they both thought about being bis*xual. Ono believes that the relationship John Lennon allegedly had with the band’s manager was one-sided; nonetheless, Lennon admitted to his wife that he wanted to be with men but could not find the right match for himself.

During the interview with The Daily Beast, Yoko Ono stated:

“John and I had a big talk about it, saying. All of us must be bis*xual. And we were sort of in a situation of thinking that we’re not because of society. So we are hiding the other side of ourselves, which is less acceptable. But I don’t have a strong s*xual desire towards another woman.”

Regarding the relationship Lennon had with Epstein, Ono said:

“The story I was told was very explicit, and I think they didn’t have s*x. I’m sure Brian Epstein made a move, yeah… just didn’t want to do it, I think. I think he desired to sleep with men, but I think he was too inhibited. At the beginning of the year, he was killed. He said, ‘I could have done it, but I can’t because I just never found somebody that was that attractive.’ Both John and I were into attractiveness, you know, beauty.”

John Lennon, a founding member of the Beatles, was bis*xual, as his wife confirmed. Even though he didn’t have s*x with other men, it’s more than enough to say that he s*xually desired to be in a homos*xual relationship. Unfortunately, the legendary musician was only able to find women to date.
