From The Liberace Show in 1969, here’s the man himself with Phyllis Diller, Dusty Springfield and British actress Millicent Martin singing Glamour. It’s the gayest thing you’ll see all day, unless you work in a bathhouse. But one commenter on YouTube (I know, NEVER read the comments) had a strident defense of Liberace’s straightness…
“There is ‘0’ evidence of Liberace being homosexual/gay. He was once engaged to actress Joanne Rio & frequently dated countless other women; not men! He testified (under oath) & denied being homosexual (or ever taken part in homosexual practices) in a 1956 defamation trial against the Daily Mirror. He further won a libel suit (1957) against Confidential Magazine for publishing a malicious article alluding to him being a homosexual. In Liberace’s biography ‘The Wonderful ‘Private’ World of Liberace’ there is no mention of him being homosexual, engaging in homosexual practices, or an affair with Scott Thorson??? Chapter Three does mention his affairs with women. Liberace was not gay!!!“
OK, whatever you say, hunty.
