Elvira (Cassandra Peterson) recently revealed she's been in a relationship with another woman for the past 19 years! I always found her so cool, and I'm so happy to see her come out.

Cassandra specifically stated she was still attracted to men, so I am overjoyed to welcome her to the bisexual community! So nice to have a bi woman to look up to who's in a long-term committed relationship with another woman.

It’s a big get for the LGBTQIA+ community.

Fixed it.

This is awesome news! 19 years is such a long time to keep it lowkey and Iove that she feels confident to share with us all that she's a proud same-sex attracted woman. Cassandra is such a gem and I can't wait for her upcoming Elvira anniversary special on Shudder!!

I'm reading her biography right now. It's really good. I'm only up to her high school years and she's already working as a go-go dancer, partying with Jimi Hendrix, fighting off Jimmy Page, tripping on too much acid, and getting fired from a strip club after one week for keeping her clothes on. She's had quite a life.

Wait why did she have to fight off Jimmy Page??

Because he literally dragged her into his hotel room and unzipped his pants while trying to undress her. Didn't talk to her, just assumed she was his to take. It totally tracks with what we know now about him.

He's not the only asshole rock star she encountered, but that anecdote really jumped out.

Wow, that's actually somehow even worse than I was expecting you might tell us. So glad that she was able to fight him off but what an absolute piece of human garbage he was to ever think he had the fucking right to do that to her in the first place, ugh.

It's so awful to hear that Cassandra had to deal with not only Page but other assholes like him as well. She and all women deserve so much better than to be treated in such a vile way. Once again, Jimmy Page and his ilk can get fucked!

Jesus fucking christ that’s disgusting, I’m glad she got away.

Good riddance to that asshole.

I haven't read her book but just gonna snarkily say maybe because she was still in high school 🤷‍♀️ right in Page's preferred age range.

I hate that so many men who have made beautiful music end up being degenerates in their personal life.

Yeah I know what you mean.

Led Zeppelin is one of my favourite bands, and I’m not going to let that scum of the earth ruin it for me.

I bought an Elvira tshirt for this halloween the second I saw the news lmaoo
