Dolly Parton Gay Rumors Come Out of Her Close Friendship With a Woman (VIDEO)


Dolly PartionDolly Parton is not gay and it's a real shame. The country crooner/business woman/actress/all-around super woman has been an entertainer for decades. What is amazing about her is that, in those years, she has never stopped telling the truth. So why would she stop now? The gay rumors currently swirling around her and her memoir Dream More are kind of laughable.

Parton openly chats about her plastic surgery, her marriage, and her "look" modeled after the town tramp. So the rumors that she is gay and that she and her best friend since the third grade are gay lovers are, sadly, hogwash.

Parton has long been a gay icon and been open in her support for LGBT rights. She even holds a "Gay Day" at her theme park, Dollywood. See below:

The fact is, if Dolly were gay, she'd be gay. Period. End of story. Why can't people just accept that?

Don't get me wrong, it would be awesome if she were, indeed, gay. The best thing about Dolly has always been her openness, her loving warmth to everyone, and her ability to get the job done while also being sweet. She would make a spicy and sassy gay rights advocate. But you don't have to be gay to be that! And Dolly already is.

Gay rumors are only compelling when they are about someone who is SO obviously homosexual (hello, John Travolta) and so obviously wanting to stay in the closet.

When they are about someone who would be open if she were gay, they are kind of yawn worthy. Dolly Parton is no one's liar. If she were a homosexual, she'd be open about it.

Move on, people!

Do you think Parton is gay?

Just because someone is so open with their support of the GLBT community people automatically want to assume that this is their lifestyle as well? What a crock!! I fully support the GLBT movement and I'm 100% heterosexual!! And I agree EstellaHavisham, I Love Dolly!!! She is who she is and doesn't make any apologies about it!!

When will people just STOP discussing other people's sexual orientation? How come people don't ask if someone is straight, why does it have to be speculation that a person is gay? Who somebody is sleeping with is none of my business, unless it's my husband. LOL I yearn for the day when people are able to just go about their business without others questioning them about their personal life. Sadly, I don't know that I will ever get to see that. Maybe my grandchildren, one day far down the road as my child is only 5 now, will finally live in a world without the endless speculation about other people's seual orientation. In the meantime, I will do my best to instill in my child a love for ALL people, until or unless a specific person wrongs her, and I will teach her that it's ok not to like THAT person but not to judge other people of the same ethnic or social, etc background because of that one person.

I do not think she is gay. if she was she would absolutley be honest menough to admit it. Even if she was gay it would be no ones business but her own. Why should snyone hsve to explain to the ,media, ect about their sexual orientation?They should not have to. it is private business.
