A young Marlon Brando is in my mind the height of masculine sex appeal. I was born in ’91 and neither of my parents were very cultured when it came to cinema so it wasn’t until high school that I became aware of how gorgeous of a man he was.
What seems kinda fucked up to me is that in my high school we had classes on the history of media production. We had lectures about the catalogue of work that came from the likes of Brando, James Dean and other teen heartthrobs of their day. Not once did the teacher mention that Brando was not only bisexual but proud of it.
I can’t help but feel a connection with his words when in 1976 he said: “…Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences, and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me.” From what I’ve read it seems like Brando truly was a rebel of his time and a beautiful person. He’s an inspiration to both my heart and my dick.
