Former President Bill Clinton was honored over the weekend with the Advocate for Change award at the annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, Calif.
The former president signed the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act into law and oversaw the implementation of the military's discriminatory “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” ban on gays in the military but has become a proponent of LGBT rights since his time in office ended.
Clinton credited daughter Chelsea for his change of heart during his acceptance speech.
As Atlanta DJ Jay McCracken prepares to officially move shop to Los Angeles next week, he spins for a goodbye party on Friday night at Jungle.
McCracken has lived in Atlanta for seven years and Georgia for 20. He says that goes somewhat against his grain, as he usually moves around every six months to a year.
Though McCracken is popular DJ around town, he got his start DJing only four years ago. He admits that he had always had an interest in electronica.
After moving to Atlanta, McCracken started handling promotions for former gay nightclub Wetbar with his production company, Spiked Entertainment. He did some bartending there and then turned to DJing for his own birthday party. That started his experience spinning.
