SCISSOR SISTER Denies Father Inspired Her Image.

By on 6 September, 2010

SCISSOR SISTERS star Ana Matronic is adamant she would have been drawn to her “flamboyant” creative life….even if her father wasn’t gay.

The singer’s mother revealed her father was a homosexual when she was just six years old, and she was left devastated when he died from AIDS in her teens.

She bursted onto the New York club scene with her female drag act, before joining the mostly gay pop band….but denies her career was an attempt to get close to her late dad.

Matronic tells You magazine:

“Mum said, ‘We can’t get back together because dad is gay.’ It wasn’t said in a brutal or shocking way. Although I was young, I knew dad now felt about men the way that he had once felt about my mother. Basically, I understood this meant they’d never be together – and at six, that sucked.

“I may have chosen that path subconsciously, but I didn’t think, ‘Right, life mission: I’m going to understand what it’s like to be a gay man. I’ve always been a very flamboyant person and I think I would have ended up there anyway.

“I was born and raised in a very artistic household. I went to drama classes at school. My mother is an incredibly artistic woman... I think that regardless of whether or not my father was gay, I would have sought out creatively passionate people.”

I’ve never thought much about whether how our parents define your career path in life. Mine certainly didn’t determine mine, but they were supportive nonetheless. I guess I’m lucky in this respect, especially where parents can sometimes pressurise guide them into a profession of their choosing.

Is there anyone reading this who has / had a gay parent? Has this had an influence on your chosen life and career?
