Olivia Newton John has passed on at the age of seventy three. Tributes were paid from across the world of entertainment and music. Newton-John was a supporter of LGBTQIA rights from the start of her career, and she is noted for the 1980 single “Physical”, the video for which was set in a gym and features gay male bodybuilders going off into the showers together. The explicitly gay references of the video took place just before the AIDS pandemic first unfolded and represent a swansong of much missed seventies gay romantic culture. Newton-John was involved with a wide variety of causes including advocating for animal rights and UNICEF.
