Dolly Parton just wrapped up her Blue Smoke World Tour last night (July 14) and while she might be enjoying some time off she’s far from taking a complete halt at producing new music. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

During a press conference last week, Parton spoke of her connection with the gay community and how she plans to celebrate them in the future.

“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 told reporters. “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.”

Parton said while there isn’t a specific song or album of hers that the gay community has connected with, she often writes with those fans in mind.

“I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and unusual and people that are just themselves,” she said. “I have a lot of good, positive uplifting songs and hopefully they can all get out there.”
