Dolly Parton-why we love her

Posted in Uncategorized by blogwing on 01/27/2010

We adore us our Dolly Parton. “Here You Come Again” is one of our top all time favorite songs. I Will Always Love You, which she wrote, is one of the biggest singles of all time. She’s appeared in television, movies and even produced a Broadway show. We sat behind Dolly at a performance of “9 to 5” on Broadway and had to refrain from reaching out to touch her.

Towleroad pointed us to this article in the UK Times that reminds us why we love her. Dolly has never been political, and despite constant gay rumors aimed at her, has always been up front about her support for gays and gay rights. She even has an annual Gay Day at her theme park Dollywood, in the very red state of Tennessee, that got her in hot water with the local Klu Klux Klan. (We didn’t know they hated us too!)

“I’m not a poster child for gay rights by any means,” she says. “But I have so many gay and lesbian friends and they’re just so pure and so true. That’s not politics to me. That’s human rights.”
