THE MERCURY PHOENIX TRUST
'No-one really knew Freddie, he
was shy, gentle and kind. He wasn't the person he put over on stage'.
(Roger, following Freddie's death).
Freddie died on the 24th of November 1991 following a long and very brave struggle against AIDS. He had issued a statement the day before, telling the world he had AIDS and asking everyone to join in the fight against this awful disease.

In April 1992, 'The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert' was held, to celebrate Freddie's life and to raise AIDS awareness.
The Mercury Phoenix Trust was formed to deal with the revenue from the Tribute concert and other sources, and still continues to raise money for AIDS charities today
