Friends of Dorothy—Gay Oz Fan Panel and Book Signing

May 29, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Dee Michel will present his book, Friends of Dorothy: Why Gay Boys and Gay Men Love The Wizard of Oz, which is based on questionnaires filled out by over 100 gay Oz fans. Three respondents, Atticus Gannaway (Senior Writer, NYU School of Law’s Office of Communications; Former Editor-in-Chief, The Baum Bugle), Erick Neher (Vice President/Marketing, Hearst Magazines; Culture Editor-at-Large, The Hudson Review), and Joe Yranski (Film Historian; former Senior Film and Video Librarian, New York Public Library), will discuss what Oz means to them individually and also what messages stories set in the Marvelous Land of Oz have for gay boys and gay men in general. Info about book at www.deemichel.info.

Copies of Friends of Dorothy: Why Gay Boys and Gay Men Love The Wizard of Oz will be available for purchase at the Bureau. To reserve a copy please write to us at contact@bgsqd.com. Please support the Bureau by buying books from us. Thank you!

Dee Michel has just written Friends of Dorothy: Why Gay Boys and Gay Men Love The Wizard of Oz and has given many talks on the Oz–gay connection. He served as a volunteer at Boston’s Gay Community News and as the first male co-chair of the Gay Task Force of the American Library Association.
