As a Youth, Little Richard Liked Boys and Girls

Little-RichardIn a story by Tiara Williams in The Reel Network, a profile about singing superstar Little Richard talks about his bisexuality. She writes:

Liked Little Girls and Boys                                                                                                                                                                                                           He started out like most black singers of his time, singing in the church choir where his Dad was a Seventh Day Adventist preacher who sold bootlegged moonshine on the side in an impoverished section of Macon, Georgia. Richard started wearing his mother’s makeup as a small child. He says he had sex with both girls and boys by his early teens. By his twenties, he would get a female friend to drive him around to pick up men and watch them have sex. His voyeurism would get him arrested in Macon and banned from performing there.

The recent story talks about Little Richard’s proclivities toward both sexes when he was a youth. (CLICK HERE for the story.)
