To the queer community, Judy Garland’s Dorothy Gale from ‘The Wizard of OZ’ was one of the first true Divas. Before Cher, Barbra, Madonna, or Lady Gaga, to be gay meant you were a ‘Friend of Dorothy’. Flash forward a nearly half a century. A new generation (and the older) found another Dorothy to call friend. Bea Arthur’s Dorothy Zbornak called to us, her blunt stare made it clear that she wasn’t going to take your sh*t. She was strong, confident, and fierce – long before that became a common term in our community. Celebrate your love for BOTH Dorothy Gale and Dorothy Zbornak with this original design. And thank you for being a friend of TECHNOQueer, too!

Leave it to Dorothy to flip out and call attention to the scene though. Ah well. She's got no one. And you have Miles. And he's tall. I bet you bought the black because you thought it would be slimming. Oh Rose. Dear, sweet, imbecilic Rose. Hand me that newspaper...
