The Extraordinary Life of Freddie Mercury by Michael Lee Richardson & Maggie Cole (2020)
Freddie Mercury is the iconic lead singer of the British rock band Queen, but he was originally born Farrokh Bulsara. At the age of 17, following the Zanzibar Revolution, he and his family moved to London, and it was here that he met his bandmates. Queen went on to have a hugely successful career, selling millions of records, and their set at Live Aid in 1985 went down in history as one of the greatest live rock performances. Mercury was also a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and had relationships with women and men throughout his life. Fun fact: Celebrate Bisexuality Day takes place in September, around the time of Mercury's birthday, as a tribute to him.
