Chicago, IL - In a recent interview with Billboard, singer Dolly Parton discussed her large gay following.

When asked what it says about her that Dollywood, her theme park in Tennessee, attracts church groups and members of the LGBT community, Parton said that Dollywood accepts all families.

"It's a place for entertainment, a place for all families, period. It's for all that," Parton answered. "But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they're already sinning. The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else is committing.I try to love everybody."

"They know that I completely love and accept them, as I do all people," Parton said of her large gay following.

"I've struggled enough in my life to be appreciated and understood. I've had to go against all kinds of people through the years just to be myself. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and love who they love. I don't think we should be judgmental. Lord, I've got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else," she added.
