In 1972, Dobkin came out as a lesbian, something very uncommon for a public personality to do at the time. She has since been very active in promoting GLBT rights. Dobkin has a small but devoted cult audience. However, she gained some unexpected (and not entirely welcome) fame in the Eighties when comedians like David Letterman and Howard Stern tracked down the "Lavender Jane Loves Women" album, and began playing it on the air. Her warbling vocal style and oh-so-earnest ("Lesbian, lesbian, any woman can be a lesbian") lyrics made her a somewhat easy target for satire. Read more on Last.fm.
