Paul V. "Born This Way"

Paul V. "Born This Way"
"I'm beautiful in my way, 'Cause God makes no mistakes,I'm on the right track baby,I was born this way. Don't hide yourself in regret,Just love yourself and you're set,I'm on the right track baby.....I was born this way" Born This Way - Lady Gaga

Hey Mr. DJ put a book on...well OK that is not what a DJ usually does, but in this case DJ Paul V. has, put a book out.  

Paul  Vitagliano (in case you haven't guessed that's what the "V" stands for) has written a book.

"Born This Way: Real Stories of Growing Up Gay" (Quirk Books; $14.95; October 9, 2012) is 
a collection of adorable childhood photographs accompanied by sweet, funny, and at times 
heartbreaking personal stories of those who grew up LGBTQ. Based on the popular blog of 
the same name, Born This Way is a celebration of growing up gay, childhood, and 
community history and awareness.

With some notable celebrity stories included as well: Congressman Barney Frank,blogger Perez HiltonErasure's Andy Bellcolumnist Michael Musto,composer Marc Shaimanradio host Frank DeCaro, singer Sia,and drag superstars Jackie Beat, Coco Peru, and Sutan Amrull(aka Raja, Season 3 winner of Ru Paul's Drag Race).

So what does Mr. Vitagliano have to say about all this?

"I'm really proud of this project, and the connection I hope it brings to both kids (gay and straight alike) and parents - who especially need to be aware of what our experiences are/were like. And more importantly, to put the message out there that gay kids need their parents' unconditional love and support"

And proud he should be, with wonderful reviews and great support from the LGBTQ Community Paul has plenty to be happy about, hey, he was "Born This Way".

Check out the groovy trailer for the book below....
