Like they say: KNOW YOUR HISTORY!
And RESPECT the #LGBT  community for essentially inventing dance and club music as we know it today! #ByeFelicia   #TenWalls

Meet Felix, today's posting at BornThisWayBlog.com

Introduction
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.
Bragging rights
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.
