Dolly Parton Plans To Record Pro-Gay Dance Anthem

partondollyh.jpgAt some point I would like to do a dance record and I have several songs that are very positive towards the gay community. I have a song called “Just A Wee Bit Gay.” It’s a great little dance tune, it’s funny and it’s got a lot of comic in it. I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves.”

Iconic entertainer Dolly Parton, a longtime supporter of LGBT equality, announcing plans to do a solid for her enormous queer fan base

    She is so delightful. I saw her at City Hall in New York in about 1978 with then mayor Ed Koch. Very funny, warm, charming and talented.

    I remember many years ago, Dolly was an outspoken advocate for gay marriage. She always said, “Yes, gay people should be able to get married. They have to suffer just like the rest of us.”

    I’ve been a fan of Dolly Parton since 1966 and even met her in her home town in 1980, doing her OWN grocery shopping, mind you! She is as down to earth as they get. Even at my age, I’ll buy this CD!

    She is one of those people that seems like she would be as nice in real life as she comes off onscreen.

    If it’s true, then she must be a wonderful person.

    If it’s fake then she is an amazing actress!! :)

    Dolly parton dance album? Sounds just campy and unexpected and fun enough for me to give it a listen.

    @Cam: She’s one of those rare people you never hear a bad word about. Same with Angela Lansbury.

    Dolly did a dance record many years ago. I bought it. It was a pink vinyl 12 inch single with a purple lable. The song was “Baby I’m Burning” We used to dance our collective asses off to it in the clubs…..Ahhh, the good old days. Whatever this next song is, I’ll buy it. Love this woman.

    There were dance remixes of her version of Peace Train back in 1996 including one by Junior Vasquez that was really good. She also had a CD of dance mixes of her version of Walking on Sunshine out around the same time with Junior producing a couple of mixes of that song as well as other producers.
