I heard Paul would meet random guys in bars and tell them he wanted to make babies with them.


MisterCosmicc, where have you read this? I'd be interested in reading about Paul, as there is very little information about him and I'm trying to understand what kind of person he was.


It's no secret.

To be fair to Paul, if he'd said to guys he was sexually attracted to that he wanted to make babies with them or breed them, he wasn't saying anything that controversial for the time. Even today that kind of language is used on the gay scene in certain circles.

Hi everyone, for what it's worth, here's the story in the Daily Mail defending Paul Prenter by his family:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6787355/Family-Queen-manager-hit-portrayal-Oscar-winning-movie.html

Since it's from the Daily Mail, not sure how reliable this story is. Those from the UK may know.

I'm unclear whether Prenter was Freddie's personal assistant or Queen's band manager as they use the terms interchangable. I thought Paul was his personal assistant and Bill Reid was the band manager. Can anyone clarify this? Thanks.

Paul was Queen’s personal day to day manager. Bill Reid was Freddie’s ex lover.

Queen also had Bill Reid as a lightning technician on The Game tour, I just read. Same Bill? Is that how they met?

Thanks MisterCosmicc. I meant John Reid, not Bill Reid, who was the Queen's manager.

John Reid was Queen's manager. John and Freddie were never lovers. Paul and Freddie were.

Paul Prenter and Freddie weren't lovers though, they were friends

Correct. Paul wasn’t Freddie’s lover. The movie didn’t say they were either. Dumb reviewers on the movie thought so and published they were.
