Dolly Parton Says Nonbinary Identities are ‘Fashionable’

Miley, can you please educate your god-mother?

Dolly Parton is an undisputed queer icon, but she may need a bit more help when it comes to respectfully comprehending queer identities. In an interview with The Sun, Parton shared that while she believes she would have "been a drag queen because I love all the flamboyant stuff" had she been male, she's still not quite sure about nonbinary and bisexual identities.

"For me, I'm still an old timer. Sometimes I think it's just become kind of fashionable to speak out like that. I think some of them even say more than who they really are," she says in the new episode of The Dan Wootton Interview podcast.

"But I don't really know how they feel inside. I know how I feel inside." She adds that her god-daughter Miley Cyrus, "does a lot of stuff for effect, and I think a lot of them do."

Cyrus came out as "a gender-neutral, sexually fluid person" in a 2017 interview with Billboard and founded the Happy Hippy Foundation, which aims to "rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBTQ youth and other vulnerable populations," according to its website.

Miley, can you have a little sit down with Aunt Dolly?

Parton also spoke with The Sun about the decades-long rumors about her sexuality and alleged relationship with lifelong friend Judy Ogle. "People say that -- because you can't really have a great relationship with a woman. I'm not gay but I have so many gay friends and I accept everybody for who they are," says Parton.
