We’ve come a long way lately in LGBT pop but Ja­maica has so far re­sisted a queer makeover. Openly gay, 34-yearold dance­hall artist Demaro wants to change all that. The mus­cle-bound hunk’s catchy Mi Readi sin­gle (com­plete with NYC video fea­tur­ing Ja­maican drag queen Jahlove Ser­rano) was writ­ten in un­der an hour and her­alds an op­ti­mistic flava. It’s the first taste of his EP, Good Vibes Only, which should be out any day now. “I want younger gay men, es­pe­cially in Ja­maica, to keep on fight­ing,” Demaro says. “Don’t give up. You’re beau­ti­ful and go­ing to be okay. Don’t give up on your­self. We’ve all gone through bad times, but young men must keep push­ing.” Wi to­tally readi for thst!
