The damage is done. So we’re not going to talk about the artist that has circulated all over the internet today. What was perhaps even more remarkable than the story itself, however, was the unwavering support the gay community received from artists and music fans alike; setting the record straight once and for all that dance music is inextricably connected to the gay community and is founded on inclusion and respect for one another. We couldn’t explain this relation better than this RA article has – a must for everyone interested in the roots of dance music culture. Instead of nailing the person in question to the cross, a lot of artists have made some inspiring statements that turn this sad story into a positive message. Here are some of the best reactions we saw today.
