During a 1997 interview with Oasis magazine, he explained his s*xual identity as “queer” rather than “gay”, stating, “I don’t want to get into labels, but I’ve never labeled myself except to say I’m queer. The thing that’s been most important to me to be out about is that I have been in loving relationships with men … I haven’t said “I am gay.” Because the truth is that I’ve also been in love with women, although the truth is I do think I’m primarily homosexual.”
