Judy Garland was one of the greatest performers of the twentieth century. From her first vaudeville performances with her family while still a toddler, to her days as a child star on the MGM lot, to her indelible performance as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, her career spanned over forty years. Along the way she was confronted with hardship and challenges, and what we remember and love most about Garland, beyond her generational talent, was her determination and strength in the face of these adversities. It’s that strength that has been inspirational and moving for many millions of her fans and people in the LGBTQ+ community. On her birthday we pay tribute to the one and only, Judy Garland.
