Social isolation solutions - getting out

Wayne Bristow asks himself “so what do you do when you find yourself in a rut and what you need you haven’t found”. You climb out and move beyond your current surroundings, that’s what.

Social isolation solutions - getting out

I read somewhere that you can count your real friends on one hand and have a few fingers left over. I started to think, who then are all these people around me? I wanted to be around people who were HIV-positive like myself, I didn’t want my doctor to be my only source for support. I admit I spend far too much time online and only communicating with others that way. I don’t get out much, mostly for financial reasons and a lack of transportation. I have incarcerated myself into ‘social

DJ Relentless on what’s hot and what’s not this month, musically speaking.

Relentlessly speaking about music – May 2013 edition

Finally spring is here and there is hope for a wonderful summer. Everyone is buzzing over what will be the summer anthem this year. Many are speculating that Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" with Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers is the perfect candidate. I love this track! The original version is about 116 BPM and it's nice to see dance music take a swing back down in speed. It was getting kinda crazy with everything up around 130 BPM's. But of course the remixes by eSQUIRE and Laurent Schark are

Hey there, Charlie Boyes

Alphonso King Jr aka DJ Relentless talks to Charlie Boyes aka Jenna Syde about her upcoming performance at POZ-To, the next dance part for poz guys happening in Toronto April 7

Hey there, Charlie Boyes

Alphonso:  First, I'd like to thank you for being our model and entertainment for April 7th. Most folks only know you as your stage persona, Jenna Syde. But the "Average Joe" doesn't know that it is Charlie Boyes behind it. How long have you been performing? Charlie Boyes: I have been performing as Jenna Syde for almost 6 years...but the character really stemmed from my old ClubKid/Goth days when i would dress up and wear elaborate make-up to various Fetish events around T.O. including the m

DJ Relentless on RuPaul and discrimination amongst the discriminated against

What’s a Word Worth?

In this, the  age of the fight for equality, there’s a struggle within a struggle that no one seems to want to talk about....discrimination amongst the discriminated against. Someone always has to feel superior to another. I believe everyone is aware of how the so-called healthy community discriminates against HIV+ people (which leads to many not disclosing because of it), but when a form of discrimination is budding on national television against any  one group we should stand up and take

More music

DJ Relentless speaking about music again – and a round-up of fall releases, with another free download.

More music

The fall season is when the music industry usually releases its heavy hitters. For example, Grammy winner Alicia Keys has a new single out called “Girl On Fire” featuring Nicki Minaj. When Alicia was a new artist I really liked her. She was a breath of fresh R&B air, but I haven’t really enjoyed any of her contributions since “You Don’t Know My Name”. Yeah....the hook on “Empire State” was sweet, but I don’t think her idea of R&B/Hip Hop has translated into today’s

Relentlessly Speaking About Politics and Music….

Over the years I have become more and more political. And with the US election approaching I am looking forward to the debates this year. Now…you are probably wondering why the guy who does music reviews is talking politics on his music column. Well, there have been some interesting developments in music during the month of August.  First, Mit Romney selected Paul Ryan as his running mate. Then Mr. Ryan started trying to appeal to the youth vote by talking about the music that he loves. Ry

An Intimate Evening with Jade Elektra

Bob Leahy says it was no drag reviewing the new CD from one of PositiveLite.com ’s own, regular poz writer DJ Relentless aka drag artist Jade Elektra, because this one’s a winner!

An Intimate Evening with Jade Elektra

Given Jade Elektra’s reputation as a dance floor diva known best for her fierce bitch tracks, one doesn’t expect an intimate release from Jade Elektra but, here it is – An Intimate Evening with Jade Elektra, Live in Concert, a collection of thirteen tracks in a lounge/cabaret setting. This is a live recording – in fact a very live recording, so expect in between song banter, odd technical glitches, but more importantly a real feeling for being in the room.  Which, for those who know T

Relentlessly Speaking About Justin Bieber....

Another blog by DJ Relentless. The name says it all . .

Relentlessly Speaking About Justin Bieber....

Aw....our little Bieber is trying to grow up and shake off his teeny-bopper image by dressing in the latest Hip Hop gear and hanging out with rappers and prize fighters. But unfortunately he’s still a child. A child who still reacts like a teenager and unfortunately got a morning radio personality suspended. As proven in his radio interview with Mojo in the morning when asked about his friendship with Harry Styles of One Direction (who has a thing for older women). Mojo asked if Bieber worri
