Donna Summer Disputed Antigay Remarks in 1989 Letter to ACT UP

The late entertainer wrote a letter to ACT UP that described antigay remarks attributed to her as "unjust and unfair."



Summer also refuted the remarks attributed to her during a 1989 interview with The Advocate, in which she said, "“I never started a war against gay people. It all started with one newspaper writer [Jim Feldman, in a 1983 review of Summer’s post-born-again Atlantic City comeback concert, in the Village Voice]. I did not make those statements… The guy who wrote it, I think was angry at me for accepting God. But his attack wasn’t on God; it was on me."
