Kurt Cobain’s Mother Wouldn’t Let Him Hang Out With Gay Friend As A Kid

9bd6c545Yeah. Yeah. I even thought that I was gay. I thought that might be the solution to my problem. Although I never experimented with it, I had a gay friend, and then my mother wouldn’t allow me to be friends with him anymore because… well, she’s homophobic. It was real devastating because finally I found a male friend who I actually hugged and was affectionate too, and we talked about a lot of things… I couldn’t hang out with him anymore.”
