Dolly Parton hits Atlanta with Queen Latifah in tow

imageWhat do gay icon Dolly Parton and gayish singer and actress Queen Latifah have in common? The pair is in Atlanta filming "Joyful Noise." That's the same phrase used to describe the squeals of joy from gay fans wherever Parton performs. The movie – as described by PR flacks – is a "musically-driven feature that tells the story of an unlikely partnership between two strong-minded women who are forced to work together to save a small town Gospel choir after budget cuts threaten to shut them down.” The pair has done some filming south of Atlanta and shifts to Poncey-Highland on Wednesday. Parton kicks off her Better Day World Tour in July.
