This is amazing! I started my club DJ career in 1982. EVERYTHING about this - from every song to all those looks and haircuts - could have been taken from the dancefloor at MAN RAY in Cambridge, Boston in 1986! #Eighties   #NewWave   #Synthpop   #Nightlife  
2:58 help......  tried my ass off to figure that song out.....

Meet Joaquin, posted today at
"Nobody really "came out" in the 60's, but during the 70's and 80's I managed to do it gradually. Today I'm retired after a long career in teaching, and I'm happily married to another man and we're active in LGBT senior issues. My experience tells me that trying to change who you are is useless and makes you lose your life. Discover yourself and live accordingly. Nobody has any right to judge who you are."

This was incredibly beautiful and natural and it's what ALL young people go through: Does the person I really like, like me back in the same way? The only difference is that now #LGBTQ  kids FINALLY get to see themselves on TV too! Bravo to #TheFosters !

This is a perfect example of #Blancmange  giving us some shades of their past work, but still sounding extremely fresh. Can't wait to hear the entire album!

DJ Paul V. is an institution in the LA and Silver Lake club scene, and whose eclectic club and radio DJ career has thrived for 30 years. As co-creator & DJ at the beloved Dragstrip 66 club (which at 20 years was LA's longest running underground dance event) Paul knows how to expertly work the CD decks with cutting-edge music & beats for alternative and gay/mixed dancefloors. Paul's latest endeavor is the "Born This Way" Blog, which exploded starting in January 2011 - - and the "Born This Way: Real Stories of Growing Up Gay" book -
I didn't choose to be gay - I was born this way! And my blogs are here to give the world-wide LGBTQ community a safe and welcoming place to tell our stories! Your comments and feedback are much appreciated, too. Thank you! DJ Paul V.

I'm just happy and thrilled to have this self-made, 30+ year career that I love, playing music for people and being able to forge my own path.
