Newly Unearthed Interview Reveals Kurt Cobain Thought He Was Gay In High School

Kurt Cobain was an open-minded teenager, and at one point in high school, even thought the he himself might be gay. The revelation comes courtesy of PBS' Blank on Blank, which has unearthed a lost interview with Jon Savage and animated it for easy Internet consumption. 

Kurt says in the interview:

"I even thought that I was gay. I thought that might be the solution to my problem. Although I never experimented with it, I had a gay friend, and then my mother wouldn't allow me to be friends with him anymore, because she's homophobic. It was real devastating because finally I found a male friend who I actually hugged and was affectionate too, and we talked about a lot of things. I couldn't hang out with him anymore."
