"Rhinestones are my medicine!" Dolly Parton talks LGBTQ fans and how healing others heals her
Dolly Parton’s been everywhere this year, and everywhere she’s gone – virtually, that is – she’s brought good, gay tidings to all. Dolly’s contributions to both science and Christmas amidst our collective existential pandemic panic have been rays of light and literal life-savers. Considering the remarkable timing of Dolly’s $1 million donation made to coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University, which helped fund Moderna’s COVID vaccine, it’s only fitting that one of the most beloved, iconic figures in pop culture is also playing a fictional angel in the Netflix musical movie “Christmas on the Square.” In real life, Dolly is the only person you might imagine haloed in glowing light with a pair of white angel wings. Interviewer Chris Azzopardi met up with Dolly to talk about how healing others heals her, recording more uplifting dance music for her LGBTQ fans, recording music with Leslie Jordan and how no one is exempt from the light of her love.

Leslie Jordan on viral fame, his Dolly duet, trying not to cuss + how 'new fans know me as me'
When a friend told #LeslieJordan he had gone viral while Jordan was quarantining with his mom in Tennessee in mid-March of last year, Jordan told that friend that, no, he was fine. He didn’t have coronavirus. But the kind of “viral” his friend was referring to was related to Instagram, where he has gone from just thousands of followers to, currently, around 5.6 million. He’s been called the “Quarantine Comedian” and “Social Media Mister Rogers.” To all his new fans and even those who know him from “Will & Grace” and in other bit parts, though, he’s most thrilled to be known now as simply Leslie Jordan. With interviewer Chris Azzopardi, Jordan talked about flourishing amid a pandemic, the hymn he's singing with Dolly Parton for his forthcoming gospel album, what stories will be in his new book "How Y'all Doing?" and how he plans to stop swearing.
