A reviewer in 2004 said that the song "Scandal" showed a lot of what Freddie was dealing with during the early years of dealing with his HIV status.
The song was composed by Brian May, and it was about the media hassling him and his family after he had a brief affair with his then-assistant, a woman named Julie. (He was already in a relationship with Anita Dobson.) The resultant media coverage inspired him to write "Scandal".
Many people read far too many messages into later Queen songs, messages that are simply not there.
