MEMBERS: the lead vocalist Freddie Mercury, the guitarist Brian May, the bassist John Deacon, the drummer Roger Taylor.
YEARS ACTIVE: 1970-1991 with Mercury
GENRES: glam rock, pop rock, psychedelic rock
WHY CAMP: they used to make a fusing of transvestism with futurism, wearing outrageous clothes, makeup, hairstyles, and platform-soled boots.
The flamboyant lyrics, costumes, and visual styles of these glam performers were a theatrical blend of nostalgic references to ostentatious, exaggerated, affected, effeminate and of course homosexual behaviour.
