Dolly Parton wants to support her gay fans by making an album they can "relate" to. The veteran singer revealed her plan to record a dance LP focused on LGBT pride during a conference call last week, DigitalSpy reported.
"At some point I would like to do a dance record and I have several songs that are very positive towards the gay community," she said. "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," she added.
Parton is an LGBT icon who's been voicing her support for same-sex marriage. "I don't want to be controversial or stir up a bunch of trouble, but people are going to love who they are going to love. I think gay couples should be allowed to marry. They should suffer like us heterosexuals," she said in an April interview with U.K.'s Event magazine.
Earlier this year, the 68-year-old country star released her latest album "Blue Smoke". To support the LP, she embarked on her "Blue Smoke World Tour" that was wrapped up earlier this week.
