Dolly Parton Hypes Her New Dance Track “I’m A Wee Bit Gay”

Are you ready for a Hi-NRG, way gay Dolly Parton album? Because soon, it may be ready for you.

There’s a longstanding rumor that Dolly Parton has been working on a dance album; a release aimed expressly at the LGBTQ community. Guardian journo Mark Guarino got a chance to ask her about the project as she promotes her new album Pure and Simple and her first North American tour in over 25 years.

Here’s what she had to say: 

Every time I start to work on that, something else comes up, like this big tour. I’ll have to put that dance album on the shelf again. But one day I promise you I will get that out. One of the songs is I’m a Wee Bit Gay. It’s a fun, tongue-in-cheek type of song. I promise I’ll get it out.

Elsewhere in the interview, she’s asked why she thinks she’s popular among gay people: 

Well, I don’t really know why for sure. I’m just happy it is. I’ve often said people don’t come to see me to see me, they come to see me to see them.

I’ve been around so long, so a lot of people grew up with me. I feel more like a family member or an aunt or an older sister or a friend. They know I’m a little different myself. I’ve fought for the right to be myself, so that is one of the reasons that the gays and lesbians relate to me. They know that I appreciate everybody for who they are. We are who we are, so why can’t we be allowed to be that? I ain’t out to preach no sermons, I’m just out to do my work, sing my songs and write them, and love people and share them.
