OMG: This Movie Is SOOOOO GAY!!!


Aside from presenting what is essentially a Judy Garland concert on film, this movie has other "gay" moments that I can only imagine were deliberate infusions by either the writer or the director or both.

Honestly, a whole gaggle of cross-dressing teenage boys clamoring for a song from Judy who then leads them along as she plays the piano???

And the whole business about her and Dirk Bogarde having sex in New York City but never getting married and parting ways completely: sounds like the hetero-exploits of many a confused young gay man.

The GAYEST reference, however, which is what gave away this whole gay charade, was Judy's comment after her booze binge which lands her in the hospital: "I drank enough to float Fire Island."

WHOA!!!

"Don't call me 'honey', mac."
"Don't call me 'mac'... HONEY!"

I cartainly felt much more homosexual after seeing this film.

"ah have always depended upon the strangeness of kindness..."

Just heard another possibly gay double entendre:

Backstage with the cross-dressing boys, Judy is introduced to a big blond student who is described as "the best top man in all the fleet."

"Don't call me 'honey', mac."
"Don't call me 'mac'... HONEY!"

I loved the the backstage part after the boy show when Judy said about her son " oh I can't get over how pretty he is!" hahaha loved It soon much. Iive always wanted Judy to respond to gay things, she was always kinda shy about those topics. But that show was pretty gay and she just went along with it all happy and gay . Loved it.

Yeah this movie is pretty gay. The cross dressing choir made no sense.

That's because you weren't paying attention. An ancient tradition at boys schools was that ALL roles in school productions were played by the boys, in this case the operetta HMS Pinafore. That's why half of them were in drag.
