Dolly Parton might have kickstarted the “LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Tinder” challenge, but the gays have definitely made it their own.

The “9 to 5” singer went viral this week by sharing four photos of herself for each of the social media networks, ranging from buttoned-up businesswoman to sexy Playboy bunny.

…but were all eclipsed by Gay Twitter’s entries.

Certain thirsty gays decided to add Grindr and OnlyFans into the mix, decisions we’re sure Parton herself would approve of.

The country legend is fully aware of her gay icon status, and regularly caters to her LGBT+ fanbase.

In November 2019, she gave her iconic hit “Jolene” a queer remix, live on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Announcing: “This is for my gay crowd,” she switched out “Jolene” for “drag queen”, singing: “Drag queen, drag queen, drag queen, drag queen/Please don’t take him just because you can.”

On January 17, a viral Twitter thread came to the stunning realisation that ‘Jolene’ with its original lyrics is actually “the gayest f***ing thing”. 

Deep analysis revealed the song to be a tale of same-sex love, which makes perfect sense when you consider that Parton also has an unreleased song called “Just a Wee Bit Gay”.
