Donna Summer Has Danced Her "Last Dance"
that disco legend Donna Summer has danced her last dance, having lost a battle with cancer. She was 63.
We just happened to be listening to "Last Dance," Summer's 1978 hit, when we read the news on Twitter.
We already knew it was going to be quite a Pride celebration this June for New York's gay community, given the one year anniversary of the Marriage Equality Act and President Obama's recent endorsement of same-sex marriage. With the passing of one of Pride's most revered divas, it's going to be all the more bittersweet as people sing, "I need you, by me, beside me, to guide me/To hold, to scold me, 'cause when I'm bad, I'm so bad."
Thanks for that last chance for romance tonight, Donna. Dance in peace, in that big, disco hall in the sky.
