The legendary late star of Queen, Freddie Mercury’s biggest fan page on social media, FreddieMercuryClub, has shared some really rare photo of Freddie Mercury with Freddie’s last love and life partner, Jim Hutton, via its Instagram account.

Today is the birthday of Jim Hutton, and if he could be alive, he would have been at the age of 71 today. Hutton died at the age of 60 from lung cancer in 2010.

The fan page of Freddie Mercury Club has not forgotten the birthday of Jim Hutton and shared some rare photos of himself with his partner, Freddie Mercury.

And also, the page has shared some stories of how they met and how they love each other told them. You can read them right below.

Here’s what its caption:

“Happy birthday to Jim Hutton (Freddie’s last love and life partner) who would have been 71 today ❤🎊🎩

Jim Hutton died 10 years ago on New Year’s Day 2010, three days before his 61st birthday.

Jim first met Freddie at Heaven, a gay nightclub in London. Freddie who was three years older offered to buy him a drink. But not only Jim didn’t recognize who he was (I know right 😁 ) he actually rejected him (not so very nicely 😁)

They didn’t connect until a year and a half later, when they “accidentally” saw each other, once again, at a nightclub and Freddie offered to buy him a drink again. This time, Jim accepted. (Yearly).

They began dating and, less than a year later, Jim moved into Garden Lodge. He kept his job as a hairdresser but he also tended to Freddie’s garden, therefore, masquerading as his gardener when Freddie’s parents came over (Freddie wasn’t exactly openly out to his parents).

Even though they didn’t get married or anything Jim gave Freddie a ring and he never took it off and whenever they were with friends Freddie referred to Jim as his husband.

And as you all know the two stayed together until the very end…

P.S. I don’t approve of certain things that were done and said in the post-Freddie era but I’m still so happy that Freddie found stability and a loving relationship when he did and I believe Jim was exactly what he needed at that point in his life.
May they both rest in happiness as Jim gives Freddie bubble baths 😍
