I Am a Lesbian Married to a Straight Man [19 Nov 2010|11:36pm]

Where do I begin?

Well, I will just start from where I think I had my first inclination.
When I was about 11 years old, I felt an attraction to girls when most of my friends were feeling an attraction to boys...you know 11 year old girls, all about the "boy bands" and pop music...while my friends were into NSYNC, I was more "attracted" I guess you could say to singers like Christina Aguillera.

I never got vocal about my feelings but to one friend of mine whom I have known since I was 4. She said she had felt the same things too, and whereas young people are curious, we were curious together.

thanks to  you all and god bless

Family Down music video - Matthew Presidente [04 Sep 2010|02:29pm]


Matthew Presidente's Family Down music video, the song from his new CD This City Colours, deals with the issues of having the idealistic dreams of a young gay man challenged by homophobia, anonymous sex, alcohol abuse, and "the scene".

See the Matthew Presidente interview video (Rainbow Reaction - Part 1) in The Beyond the Ghetto Within the Village Community to watch Matthew discuss this song and others on his This City's Colours CD.

Gay Songwriter in Seattle [11 Jul 2010|02:15pm]

[ mood | sleepy ]

Wow, so it's been more than half a year since anyone's posted to this community. I thought I'd share one of my originals on here, just for the heck of it. Please feel free to comment, rate, and subscribe---and thanks in advance for listening. :)

This song was written after true events, and recounts what it's like to be hit on by a straight guy.

machineKUNT Records signs Cindergarden

To celebrate the international success of the "Extreme Women in the Dark Future" compilation machineKUNT Records has signed solo female artist Cindergarden to this newly evolving label.

After her memorable North American tour as keyboardist for System Syn (Metropolis Records) Jaymie Valentine self-released a full length album titled "The Clandestine Experiment" which received critical acclaim.

Hailing from Los Angeles, California with two full length albums and one EP behind her... Jaymie Valentine has been compared to everyone from Last Rites-era Skinny Puppy to Switchblade Symphony to Jack Off Jill. Yet there is nobody that sounds like Cindergarden except for Cindergarden and that is what makes this a special project. Described by listeners as strong, expressive, emotive and accessible Jaymie redefines what dark electronic
and dark ambient should be.

You can download "The Clandestine Experiment" absolutely free at http://myspace.com/cindergarden for a taste of what's to come.

Jaymie Valentine will be releasing a new album on machineKUNT Records in 2009.

Pride Vancouver Hangover - bashing attacks, dedication tunes [09 Aug 2008|04:26pm]

Once again Pride 08 gets marred by a violent attack.

Story in Vancouver Sun.

Story in Metro

CTV story with video

At Matthew Presidente's Groove Box show - tonight's theme being the Pride Hangover Show, we dedicated two songs to the victims and the people affected and injured in these bashings [including our band which was involved as a witness to the East Side Pride bashing]. Creep - for those who feel alienated by violence and oppression and Hedwig's Midnight Radio - how we rise above oppression and lift up our hands.

Dedication tunes performed at Numbers Caberet Post Pride Show: [with intro dedication comments by Stephen Emery]
1. Creep - Radiohead Cover by Stephen Emery, Matthew Presidente, Hazen Rice
2. Midnight Radio - Hedwig Cover by Matthew Presidente, Stephen Emery
[courtesy matthewpresidente.com]

[a pic of the alleged psycho basher]

Two people remain in hospital with serious injuries. Word on the street is that this 2nd attack was not a bashing but a psycho mental patient.

Either way, a great 30th Pride has been marred somewhat and we Numbers performers and those of us at radiogay.ca hope that the victims' psychological and physical recoveries are swift and thorough.

I LOVE LORI! And I LOVE her music! DYKE DIVA WHAT! [08 Aug 2008|02:06pm]

In a time when coming out has evolved from something equated with fear to something much more about freedom, Michaels has freed her artistic soul to deliver "Living My Life Out Loud." It is a testament to, above all else, her love of the song - whether that means writing, arranging and performing the vocals (lead and backgrounds), showcasing her talents on the piano/keys, or overseeing production with the best in the business to leave listeners breathless. 

"Living My Life Out Loud" on CD from Lori Michaels!

Go to www.edgeonthenet.com to their GIVEAWAY center and win her CD!  I"m obsesed. IT'S AMAZING!!!
