Dolly Parton Planning LGBT-Friendly Dance Album
"Just a Wee Bit Gay" is the title of "a great little dance tune" the country icon has written
Country legend and longtime gay icon Dolly Parton recently revealed that at 68 years old, she's planning to add a new feather to her 10-gallon hat: Dance music diva.
Before you roll your eyes, hear her out—this isn't just a Dolly Parton dance album, but a Dolly Parton dance album focused on LGBT pride.
"At some point I would like to do a dance record and I have several songs that are very positive towards the gay community," Parton revealed at a press conference for her just-wrapped world tour. "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."
Parton has a long history as an LGBT icon, voicing her support for same-sex marriage years ago. She even secretly competed in a celebrity drag queen look-alike competition at one point in her life—and lost. "It's a good thing I was a girl or I'd be a drag queen," she explained.
