Perhaps, a tea party would be more specific. Yes, I wanna be a DJ at a gay tea party.
A plan of making this mixtape actually struck me more than a year ago, when I still lived in the Netherlands, a country with a strong gay culture. There I went to the pride parade and gay pubs but I was rather disappointed by the songs played by the local DJ’s. I kept thinking that I might have done better.
For this particular mixtape however, I made some strict criteria for myself, and the main criterion was that the artists included in the mixtape should be gay, instead of putting songs that are famous among gay communities but the singers are not really gay.
An additional criterion is that the artists should be gorgeous 😛
Anyway, putting these criteria, I basically just can’t leave for example, Elton John, the ultimate gay icon yet unfortunately has no (or very, very few) songs for dance parties. So instead of making a mixtape for a dance party, I think it would be nice to make one for a rather relaxed and cozy tea party where I could include Elton, kd lang, and Rufus.
