Go West

And now let’s fast forward to 1994, the year my parents divorced and the year I graduated from high school.  It was a tough year – the end of one part of my life and the start of another.  And it was also the first time I ever heard a song by the Pet Shop Boys.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  On the dance floor at a bar called J. Wags – a position I had secured thanks to a gullible doorman who believed I didn’t have an ID because of a DUI.  After asking the DJ who sang that song, I had to have the album which I bought on cassette, later investing in the CD which I still have to this day.  Go West was definitely my big gay anthem back then!  It would definitely have to be on the soundtrack to my life.
