Exclamation 1960's Teen Singer Lesley Gore Reveals She Is A Lesbian

From Out.com and yesterday's NY Daily News:

”Party” Girl Comes Out

1960s teen idol Lesley Gore of “It’s My Party (I’ll Cry If I Want To)” fame has formally come out in an interview on AfterEllen.com. Gore, who has a partner of 23 years, said, “I never really kept my life private…those who knew me, those who worked with me were well aware.” For two years, she’s been a host of gay TV show In the Life, and said that as a result “I meet a lot of young people in the Midwest…they come and they talk to me about this stuff, so I know how important it is.”

To hear some preachers, I didn't think they had gay people "back then"....

OMG!!! One of the twins had a crush on her and I had my agent get an autograph from her and I had her come to Vegas once when I was going "Mame" so that he could get to meet her backstage after the show. It never went anywhere and he kind of felt bad about himself for a couple of weeks, and I'm like, hon, if she's too stupid to go out with someone who's my son, then she's not worth it.

I'll have to call him this afternoon and tell him about this shocking news. No wonder she didn't go out with him!!!

I was. She grew up not far from me in Tenafly, NJ (also hometown of actress Mira Sorvino) and that is a pretty conservative town.

If she is hosting a gay tv-show, how come the news about her being a lesbian has only just come out?

It wasn't any mystery to the folks at amiannoying, as she's in the "Lesbians" annoying collections.

Believe it or not, there are gay conservatives (I think they're particularly whacked, but they do exist), and gay people come from all kinds of towns

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Yes, I am aware of that. In fact, one is working on the campaign of Ed Cox, Richard Nixon son-in-law, for senator of New York.

Maybe she's a log cabin lesbian.

Lol but being from a conservative town doesn't mean you don't have gay and lesbians all over the map.

I live in Orange County in California and we still have that rep for being "The Orange Curtain."

Well honey it's a very GAY county even though we don't have actualy "gay" areas.
