A little over a year ago, Mexican electrocumbia singer Raymix came out as gay in a five-minute video posted on his YouTube channel. "I was nervous and shaking," he previously told Billboard. "I'm typically a very calm person, but this was hard and I worried about my career that I've worked so hard for."
Since coming out, Raymix, who grew up in the small town of San José El Vidrio in Mexico with no internet (therefore not much knowledge on the LGBTQ movement), says his art hasn't been impacted because "it is a printed expression of my soul," he says.
But it wasn't until August last year that for the first time ever, the 30-year-old artist featured a man as his love interest in his music video for "Llámame." "Why not change the game? Here I am, showing the world that we can and should evolve. The most important thing is to be happy."
