My Latin Extravaganza for the POD


This article was first published by GCN - Gay Community News - my place of work. But of course I have to share here for my Marlife audience.

GCN’s very own Marlon Jimenez-Compton, after securing a regular slot on The Power Of Dreams Show, is offering you next Wednesday a ‘Latin Extravaganza’ on Dublin South FM. In his own words, Marlon says “I promise I am offering you a bonanza of rhythm, colours and great vibes. For sure, rhythm is gonna get you”.

Marlon said his mission with the show is to “spread positivity, good vibes and of course love which is something we need at the moment due to the lockdown. So it would be a good way for [people] to listen to something that is gonna bring a smile to their faces.”

Speaking to GCN, Marlon, who is from Venezuela, grew up listening and dancing to Latin music. He says that dancing to Salsa and Merengue was for him like a happy workout and very therapeutic.

“You dance for hours and hours just enjoying those songs that not only make you move but also bring you joy and contentment,” he said.

He also confesses that for him, in particular, the Latin Extravaganza show brings a touch of nostalgia to him, but in a happy way, as he is not dancing as much as he used to – which is why sometimes you might catch him on his social media dancing and singing to Latin Music and both Spanish and English.

As you can imagine, his show is packed with Latin moves and rhythm. In his own words, one of his colourful purposes is “to make you feel you are in front of the Caribbean sea with a cocktail in your hands full of happiness and joy.”

Marlon is using his platform on Dublin South 93.9FM to highlight some of the causes close to his heart, while still supporting his clients from GCN. In this month’s show, he will highlight the work of SpunOut.ie.

Listen to Marlon Jimenez-Compton’s Latin Extravaganza this Wednesday, July 1 and a repeat on Friday, July 3. Both dates air at noon on Dublin South 93.9FM or on dublinsouthfm.ie

  1. Herpes is a sexually transmitted virus that primarily infects the mouth and the genitals. It is transmitted by bodily fluids – penetration isn’t required for transmission, oral-oral or oral-genital contact will suffice.I WAS ONCE HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS patient, I have HSV-I genitally and I'm one of the rare cases where I was infected by sexual contact. The person who infected me was unaware that he had it, and he tested negative on a blood test (he probably got it from his mother at birth and never had an outbreak in his life).I'm sure I have HSV-I (they did a culture of the fluid from the sores i had during my initial outbreak). So it is possible to contract HSV-I by asymptomatic asexual contact, so please people talk about this and prevent anyone else from getting it, I'm kind of going through something. Four years ago my love and I both had an OB and when I got the blood work done it came back negative. We were happy in the relationship so I learned to accept it and never really bothered to get tested again. Now, that we broke up I decided to get tested again. I came back negative for both HSV-1 and HSV-2 (got the news!) and have not had an OB since the initial one four years ago. My X on the other hand has had a few small outbreaks and never came back positive for HSV-1.Only the help of Dr Afrid where able to help me out with is Root and Herbs, if you are having any type of this disease or infection like HIV,CANCER OR ANY disease kindly email doctor Afrid for cure:( drafridherbalhome@gmail.com ) or Whatsapp him on +2349057260738.
