  • Some with historical context: ---------------------------------------------- "Wears a Green Carnation" Comes from the fact that Oscar Wilde used to wear one. Pretty boys, witty boys, You may sneer At our disintegration. Haughty boys, naughty boys, Dear, dear, dear! Swooning with affectation... And as we are the reason For the "Nineties" being gay, We all wear a green carnation. ” —Noel Coward, 1929 , Bitter Sweet --------------------------------------- "Bohemian" In the early days of American Theater, it was forbidden to have plays mention homosexuality. So instead, the scriptwriters would use the word "Bohemian" and sophisticated audiences would know what they meant. ---------------------------------------- "Friends of Dorothy" The term dates back to a time in the early 20th century when homosexuality was against the law in both the United Kingdom and in the United States. Saying at a social gathering that another man was a "friend of Dorothy" was a euphemism used for discussing sexual orientation without other people knowing what you were discussing. The origin of the term is unknown and there are various theories. Most commonly it has been linked to the film The Wizard of Oz because Judy Garland, who starred as the main character Dorothy, is often noted as a major icon in the gay community. A less popular etymology links it to Dorothy Parker, who had many homosexual friends. Starting in the late 1980s, on several cruise lines, gay passengers began approaching ship staff, asking them to publicize gatherings in the daily cruise activity list. As the cruise lines were hesitant to announce such things so blatantly in their daily publications, they would list the gathering as a "Meeting of the Friends of Dorothy". Such meetings have expanded in popularity and frequency over the years. Now, many cruise lines will have multiple "FOD" events, sometimes as many one each night.
