The former Culture Club frontman said he also got a ‘lot of love’ during his four-month stay at Edmund’s Hill prison in Suffolk.
On the bullying, he said: ‘It was mainly young guys shouting out “batty boy” and things like that.
'It was nothing I hadn’t heard before and I dealt with it in the way I would on the street: “Telling me I’m gay is not news to me. Why are you telling me I’m gay? Yeah, I know, I’m 50”.’
George, who was jailed for falsely imprisoning a male escort in January 2009, said he survived prison by ‘thinking minute to minute, hour to hour, day to day’.
He told National Prison Radio. ‘When you first arrive, it’s terrifying, I don’t care how hard you are.
But eventually you just go “you know what? I’m here!” Acceptance is a huge thing.’
