Lesley Gore, nee Lesley Sue Goldstein.
OMG! A Joo! Just look at this gorgeous, feminist, lesbian, Joo!
(Those who read this blog also know of a blogger on the far right who can't write about cultural icons without mentioning their religious backgrounds. Why? I dunno. Ask a Nazi.)
Lesley Gore was one of my favorite pop singers. There was so much about her that was talented, genuine, and human. R.I.P. Lesley.
Beginning in 2004, Gore hosted the PBS television series In the Life, which focused on LGBT issues. She stated in a 2005 interview that she was a lesbian.
At the time of the interview, Gore had been living with her partner for more than 23 years. Death According to her partner of 33 years, Lois Sasson, Gore died February 16, 2015, at the NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, New York City of lung cancer.
Good-bye Lesley. You were wonderful. Ahead of your time. And we shall miss you very, very much.
