What is Måneskin's relation with the LGBTQIA+ community?


In all the media, when talking about the subject, much is said about the style of the frontman of the group, Damiano David.

However, today we will pay special attention to the two members of Måneskin who are members of the LGBTQIA+ community and who have never hidden this relationship.


In case you didn't already know, they are Victoria de Angelis (bassist) and Ethan Torchio (drummer).


In this regard, Ethan defines himself as 'sexually free':

"I feel lovingly free, because I understand that love is more beautiful if we live it freely"

And Victoria is openly 'bisexual', said openly for the first time to NEG MAG and reiterated for Vanity Fair - Pride Edition:

"When I first felt feelings and attraction for a girl, it was a little confusing, because I never had the courage to go beyond the limitations that had been imposed on me. For society, being heterosexual is the norm and people often get caught up in that, depriving themselves of the freedom to experience many different shades and facets of love. Overcoming the initial insecurity of having to question my own certainties, I lived my sexuality in a very natural and free way, as it should be for everyone."

Some time ago, some tweets called our attention for referring to Måneskin as "the band with three straight guys". And it is important to highlight that Ethan is very private with his personal life and does not share many details, therefore, he did not go into much depth in the speech of the interview quoted above, but that does not invalidate his statement.

 

If you're a fan of the band, you've already come across scenes of the two in music videos relating to people of the same gender.


In three of them, Victoria kisses the actresses in the clips:





The first is one of the band's first official music videos, the music video for Chosen!










This is the music video for 'Le Parole Lontane', which portrays the loss of an inspiring muse: Marlena, who plays the kiss.







This one is recent! In the music video for MAMMAMIA, Måneskin's penultimate single, Victoria kisses a girl she met at the party.





In the IWBYS music video, Ethan and Damiano star in the kiss:



In the music video for 'I WANNA BE YOUR SLAVE', the band decided to show different types of fetishes. And it couldn't miss a kiss with gum, could it?






On other occasions and far away from the discography screen, the other two members of the band (Thomas and Damiano) also showed their support for the LGBTQIA+ community, especially at a concert by the band in Poland, a country with severe restrictions on homosexuals and denies basic rights to the LGBT population in the country.


Watch the moment:


At this festival, being televised in Poland, Damiano leads the speech after 'I Wanna Be Your Slave': "We think that everyone should be allowed to do this without any fear. We think that everyone should be completely free to be whoever the f#ck you want. Thank you Polland, love is never wrong".


As part of the band, Ethan and Victoria are among the few LGBTQIA+ artists who won Eurovision, despite many artists that have participated in the competition throughout the contest's history.


Protests also took place on the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest, as a way of celebrating the band's victory. The event is televised and broadcast to around 200 million people:



In addition, the phrase "Love is never wrong" and similar thoughts are very present in the band's interviews, and public placements - as we saw today. The band also makes a point of raising the flag at shows, delivered by fans, since the first tours: 'Måneskin Live' (2017) and 'Il Ballo Della Vita' (2018-2019).




Thanks for reading this far,
