Beckham: Inside me there is a gay man who wants to come out

PinkNews Staff Writer February 4, 2009

Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham has said she has more in common with gay men than other women.

The wife of footballer David Beckham, she is close friends with prominent gays Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish.

In an interview with the Italian version of Vanity Fair she said:

“I love women. I like them as friends, as interesting people to speak with. But I love gay men. I always say it. Inside me there is a gay man who wants to come out!

“With heterosexual men I have nothing in common – excluding my husband, brothers and father, you understand.”

Mrs Beckham also revealed she would like to have a daughter – she has three sons with David, who plays for LA Galaxy but has been loaned to AC Milan.

Last year the England star said that his famous Giorgio Armani underwear ads were all him and no digital manipulation of his bulge took place.

“When people talk to me about being a gay icon I think of it as a great honour,” he told GQ.
“To have that kind of effect on so many people around the world, I was honoured.”
