PUBLISHER'S CORNER REMEMBERING RICHARD TRAINOR: A LIFE WELL LIVED! Life is too short, so we should all live it to the fullest. That's how our friend Richard Trainor lived. This past Friday, we got together to celebrate Richard's life, after he passed away peacefully on his beloved South Beach Friday, July 5, 2019. During Richard's Celebration of Life at Levitt-Weinstein Memorial Chapel, friends told funny stories about him, laughed, cried, and remembered a fun-loving friend who lived to the fullest. Several of his friends shared hilarious stories with lively examples of how Richard knew how to really have a good time and light up a room. They also recounted how Richard was a very loyal and generous friend who would do anything to support his friends, the charities he loved, and our LGBTQ community. This week, we honor Richard's life in a special In Memoriam that celebrates his life well lived, and his enormous contribution to our LGBTQ community with the creation of TWIST. In this week's cover story, we interview an adventurous model who likes to bend the rules to give life a little bit more of spice. His name is Ivan Garcia Fuentes and he was born in Madrid. Ivan enjoys expressing himself in an artistic way by modeling for photography. This is something he did quite well during a recent photo shoot with David Vance. Enjoy the interview and the sexy photos of Ivan.

IN MEMORIAM:

Richard Trainor A FUN LIFE LIVED TO THE FULLEST By Rafa Carvajal Photos by Rafa Carvajal, J.R. Davis, Henry Perez, Dale Stine, and provided by TWIST

This past Friday, we got together to celebrate the life of our friend Richard Trainor who passed away peacefully on his beloved South Beach Friday, July 5, 2019. During Richard's Celebration of Life at Levitt-Weinstein Memorial Chapel, friends told funny stories about him, laughed, cried, and remembered a fun-loving friend who lived to the fullest since he was a young man. Several of his friends shared hilarious stories with lively examples of how Richard knew how to really have a good time and light up a room. They also recounted how Richard was a very loyal friend who would do anything to support and help you. Many people spoke about his great generosity with his time and money, and how Richard personally donated to many causes and charities – including supporting several organizations just because his friends were part of them. Richard also loved the nightclub business and was passionate about art. I will always remember that every time I saw Richard he had a big smile on his face and was full of spirit. He loved telling stories about having fun and even doing some crazy stu. I am going to miss that beautiful smile very much, along with

the kind words Richard always had towards me, and his cheerful stories. As Chris Deejay Smeejay Hodgson so eloquently put it, "Richard Trainor brought into our lives the magic, hilarity and joy that only he could. We say goodbye to somebody that brought so much happiness into so many of our lives. A true gentleman with kindness overflowing, he changed this town and changed our lives." Even though he is no longer with us on this earth, Richard Trainor is going to live forever in our hearts through his beautiful legacy, and the safe, very entertaining space he built for the LGBTQ community and named TWIST. Richard's legacy is a wonderful gift that all of us who knew him will appreciate well beyond the countless, fun memories and sassy stories we will be sharing during the rest of our lives about Richard and his beloved TWIST. We love Richard and will miss him forever, but we will be smiling and thinking about him every time we walk through the front door of that very special place Richard created called TWIST, with "Never a cover. Always a groove." Rest in peace dear Richard...

TOP TRAX By DJ FR8-O

Although this is INNA's first foray into the realm of Latin music, she's no novice when it comes to weaving worldwide hits. Her debut track "Hot" became an instant global club smash after the artist posted the song on YouTube. Without the support of a label, marketing or promotion, DJs and radio stations were begging for a copy of the track, and record execs were vying for INNA to sign on the dotted line. The overnight success of "Hot" was followed by a string of dance hits like "Sun is Up" and "Déjà vu," several music awards, and collaborations with industry heavies like Pitbull, Flo-Rida, Daddy Yankee and J Balvin. It seemed like INNA had the magic touch when it came to churning out an epic dance anthem, but once the EDM trend began to shift to more low-key offerings, she knew the only way to other reasons Yo is so deliciously amazing (besides INNA's seductive purr, of course) stay on top was to evolve. is her Romanian producer David Ciente. Not only did he strip away the overpowering INNA began working on Yo in 2016, draw- electronic tapestry that we've come to associate with the dance diva, but he also reing inspiration from a recent trip to Latin placed it with organic instrumentation, making music out of wood, outside noises and a America. "I was in the studio, with a cerve- simple tap on the microphone. za listening to some instrumentals," she explained during an interview. "I started with The final result is INNA like you've never heard her before. Each song tells the story some lines and then, it turned out really easy of a strong female character as seen through her own eyes, and set to subtle yet mesto write the lyrics in Spanish. I never had a merizing vibes. From the infectiously confident opener, "Ra" to the rhythmic "Iguana" to plan for it, we tried it in English, but the music the sultry closer "Fuego," INNA shows us her many sides; sides that simply would be did not work that well." Not only does the missed if they were played over a pulsating beat and synthetic layers of build-ups and unexpected language detour work perfectly crescendos. With more than 5 million subscribers and 3 billion views on her YouTube for INNA, but it also gave her the opportu- channel, the 32-year-old has no shortage of fans. She flaunts more than 11 million nity to experiment with her vocal stylings as Facebook followers, 2.6 million on Instagram and 1.5 million on Twitter. Now that she's well, taking inspiration from Romanian folk- conquered the club world, Yo opens a new chapter for INNA, one we're all eager to lore and Spanish gypsies.

ou probably wouldn't expect the hottest new Latin album to be coming from Romania, but that's exactly what INNA has blessed us with on her latest project, Yo. Not only is this INNA's first Spanish-language album, but Yo also marks a few other firsts for the singer-songwriter. It's the first time she's taken control of the entire creative process, and it's also her first departure from the EDM genre that launched her career over a decade ago.
