Robyn Continues To Prove One Of The Realest Gay Pop Icons

From her Out cover story, thanks to the interviewing of my boy Noah Michelson:

“I have never thought of ‘Dancing on My Own’ as a gay anthem, but hearing it put that way doesn’t surprise me,” Robyn says. “Gay culture has always had to embody outsidership. I think we’re all just scared to be lonely. We all want to be loved and we all want to be seen. When you’re different on a very basic level, that feeling is going to be with you more often than someone who doesn’t have to face what being an outsider is really like. I think it’s a song about being on the outside -- very physically -- and if it feels like a gay anthem then I take that as a super compliment.”
