Biography: Mister Rogers Described Himself As Bisexual

Pink News reports:

According to a biography of Mister Rogers which came out last year, the children’s TV presenter told his openly gay friend Dr William Hirsch that if sexuality was a spectrum, “well, you know, I must be smack in the middle, because I have found women attractive, and I have found men attractive.” The book, The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers, also notes that in 1975, Rogers told The New York Times: “I’m not John Wayne, so consequently, for some people I’m not the model for the man in the house.”

The story is going viral today due to the tweets below. Rogers was apparently faithfully married to his wife from 1952 until his death in 2003.
