For millions of queer kids in the 70's - and this doesn't just mean literally gay - +David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust was a pivotal moment. It was the first time we saw something that reflected something in ourselves. That it was OK and cool to be the freak or the "different" one that doesn't fit in to the "norm" - not to mention how badass the MUSIC was too!
England first met 'Ziggy Stardust' during this airing of 'Top of the Pops' in July 1972

Although the remixes are simply wonderful as heard here, when Chris demoed the songs for me in his studio, he showed me his innovative idea for the game, which would have allowe...

Andy Loves Val Kilmer!
My first gay crush was Val Kilmer as Batman ! It was 1995, and I was 9 years old at the time. I had always loved Batman, so when "Batman Forever" came out, of course I HAD to see it.  From the first time I saw Val Kilmer as Batman , I was smitten. Oh, those...

Great song and fun and kind of silly video! But anyone else notice that the 70's look they're going for actually looks like most millennial mega hipsters? ;)

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.
