Maneskin Addresses Accusations Of Queerbating

Maneskin has addressed accusations of queerbating after frontman Damiano David and guitarists Thomas Raggi have faced criticism for adopting a more gender fluid style. In an interview with The Guardian, Victoria de Angelis said, “There are some cases where it happens, but sometimes the accusations are so extreme. It’s stupid for queer people, who should fight these stereotypes, to label it as this and create more hate.”

The fact Raggi and David are straight doesn’t mean they can’t wear makeup. Or heels.”

David was in agreement, adding: “Everything me and Thomas do is always filtered by two people who are queer. Of course we don’t experience the same stuff, but we live every day very closely with people from the community.”
