At this level, the Italian rock band might be simply as well-known for his or her eccentric sense of fashion, each on stage and the crimson carpet — we’re speaking garters, plenty of eye make-up, and so forth. Take a look at the image beneath, you get the deal.
Two of the band’s members — Victoria De Angelis and Ethan Torchio, the primary and third folks from the left on this photograph — establish as members of the LGBTQIA+ neighborhood. The opposite two, Damiano David and Thomas Raggi, establish as straight.

“There are some instances the place it occurs, however typically [the accusations are] so excessive,” Victoria mentioned. “It is silly for queer folks, who ought to battle these stereotypes, to label it as this and create extra hate.”
“The actual fact [that Raggi and David] are straight doesn’t suggest they cannot put on make-up. Or heels.”
Damiano added that his and Thomas’s private expressions of fashion are often influenced by their queer-identifying bandmates. “Every thing me and Thomas do is all the time filtered by two people who find themselves [queer],” he mentioned. “After all we do not expertise the identical stuff, however we stay on daily basis very carefully with folks from the neighborhood.”
Damiano additionally identified that they’ve acquired backlash from folks in Italy as a consequence of their type selections. “We have all the time been very dividing. There are a bunch of people who love us and are very happy with what we’re doing, after which there’s a complete different half fabricated from conservatives and conventional rock’n’roll followers and fascists that hate us with all the things they have.”
Briefly, it looks as if Måneskin are gonna preserve doing their factor, and it does not appear to be there’s something mistaken with that. We’ll see what they rise up to subsequent!
