Electrocumbia pioneer DJ Raymix, real name Edmundo Gómez Moreno has come out as gay. The Mexican singer and DJ posted a video on his YouTube channel opening up to his fans for the first time about his sexuality.
“Can you believe that in 2020, there are people in the industry who told me not to do this video? That I should stay quiet and pretend to be the person I am not because I wouldn't be successful. They told me that the audience is not ready for an artist who sings cumbia or regional Mexican music [to come out as gay]. With so much pride today, I want to tell you that I'm gay. And if you ask me what will change after this message, the answer is: nothing,” he says.
“I've been wanting to say this for a long time and I'm happy to finally be able to say it because it isn't easy,” he explains. “I am more free and happier than ever. I will continue to take cumbia to different parts of the world.”
As ‘Billboard’ reports, Raymix also posted on social media and on Instagram adding, “So many dreams don't fit in a damn closet. I am officially telling the world: I'm Edmundo and I'm gay.”
