27 days ago, DJ Minx changed her life with an Instagram post.
The Detroit techno legend — who’s been active in the scene since the early ’90s — had been thinking of what to write in her caption for months. Ultimately, on June 2, 2021, she got a big message through in an economical nine sentences, which most crucially included: “People suffer from emotional anxiety at the mere thought of ‘coming out,’ but the stress of not doing so is taking up WAY too much of my space and is shaking my energy to the core. So here I am. Minx, DJ, producer, Momma, partner, lesbian, friend.”
With the press of a “share” button, the artist born Jennifer Witcher revealed her true self to the world, using Pride 2021 as the impetus and receiving a flood of support from friends, fans and fellow artists in the process.
