Welcome to Loving Marilyn

Celebrating the life of Marilyn Monroe

Having discovered Marilyn quite by chance as a very small child, I grew up before the age of the internet, online groups and fan club. For me she was always ‘My Marilyn’ it came as quite a revelation to find that there were thousands and thousands of people out there just like me – loving Marilyn!          

The aim of this website is to unravel and explore some of the mysteries of Marilyn Monroe and to give some insight into why, over 50yrs after her death, we are all still intrigued by this woman. There are very few people in history that will never be forgotten - Marilyn Monroe is one of those select  few.
