Gay history is extremely interesting. Diana Gabaldon has written some nice fiction about Lord John, a gay character in the 1740-1770s, with all the accompaning lingo of their day. "Miss Thing" has been around a very long time!
Does FOD really
refer to Judy Garland, or
does it refer to Dorothy Parker?
On our last cruise (Carnival Conquest) I was very
surprised to see FOD or GLBT get together's scheduled at 11:30 PM :o. As a friend of FOD's, I thought this might not
be the best time for a GLBT get together?
