Friend of Dorothy is OLD SCHOOL slang for "gay" from before it was at all acceptable to be gay. As Nelson said, it's about Dorothy from Wizard of Oz, because it was something of a stereotype to be into Judy Garland apparently.

wow

Wow... All I wanted to do was chat with some nice gay folks who also have Airstreams Suddenly I'm accused discriminatory bias (intentional or unintentional) and being insensitive. This was my very first post. What an unpleasant introduction to this website.

By the way, thank you so much for your support, Airstream Jim. You are an intelligent, articulate, and kind man.

Eh...better some days than others...but thanks for the kind words.

If you get down south of the border into New York (or Florida after October), give us a shout ahead of time and we'll see about meeting up.

Jim

For much of our history, the theme of the USA has been the “melting pot” concept where we all eventually blend into something called “Americans.” I am of the generation that rebelled against the sameness of the melting pot, among other things. What came out of that is a new theme, “multiculturalism.” While multiculturalism is still fairly new, in the scheme of things, I think I like it better than the melting pot. It doesn't really matter what I like; we didn't get to vote on this. Multiculturalism is just a description of how things are now compared with the way they were. I view friends of Dorothy as a facet of multiculturalism. Multiculturalism implies that different cultures will interact peacefully, maybe even joyfully, and share their values with each other. It also means that each culture can maintain its own core values and identity without having to feel guilty about it. Since my retirement, I have been learning Spanish and exploring the Latino culture. I have felt welcome there, although I will never be a Latino, and have no desire to give up my Anglo Saxon heritage. I wouldn't learn much about the Latino culture in a group that was composed of 50% Anglos and 50% Latinos. No, it has to be a group that is mostly Latinos and not many Anglos. So people have to feel free to associate with like minded people. And hopefully, they will welcome pilgrims like me who want to find out more about them. We owe so much to the Friends of Dorothy, for the valuable contributions they have made to our society, but for which they have received no recognition. It's time they started receiving some.
