- From DJ Paul V. -
“I started my club DJ career in 1981, and all these bold and fearless LGBTQ artists were essential choices for the dancefloor. Not only were many of them in my age peer-group, I consider them all icons and heroes for choosing to declare their queerness at a time when it was still quite dangerous (and career-killing) to do so. And even if some of them officially came out a bit later in life, I think people forget just how many LGBTQ artists contributed to the soundtrack of all our lives at the time. So this is my chance to really honor those contributions. And seriously: they gave us some of the greatest and most beloved music of the 80’s to begin with, so it’s kind of a no-brainer!
Note that this event is ALL inclusive:
Gay, straight, bi, trans, queer or however you identify yourself — let’s all celebrate and let’s DANCE!"
