THE BORN THIS WAY BLOG

This is a gay kid, Paul V. thought to himself upon viewing a friend's particularly telling online photo, which was taken when the guy was a 3-year-old boy. The image was of a smiling toddler in a plaid jumpsuit, one hand on each hip, his left knee bent slightly toward the right knee, which allowed his left foot to point to the floor and showcase a shiny white sneaker. Very red carpet. Paul then wondered,Wouldn't it be great if there were collected photographic evidence of gay kids that would show that being gay is innate and not a choice?
So began the Born This Way blog—a photo essay project that shows the "innocent beginnings" of LGBTQ children. And in just a few months' time, the site has received more than two million page views, has been featured on CNN, and just gave birth last week to a new weekly radio show. For Paul—who's been a key player in the Southern California music scene for more than two decades (he's known professionally as DJ Paul V.), the Born This Way blog is just the latest twist in his ongoing creative journey.

  4. Gayte Born This Way is one of my favorite blogs. It is great to see one of us each day, in our early state, less encumbered by the years of oppression which follow, that we must eventually cast off. Very empowering.
