As they left the theater they felt moved not only by the spectacle and songs, but also by the underlying theme of the film. Throwing caution to the wind they kissed on the street in public. Something very taboo for 1939. They closed their eyes and wished, perhaps one day they would not have to hide their lives in the shadows, but simply live and love freely in a land that they heard of once in a lullaby.

I find it fascinating that The Wizard of Oz came out (no pun intended) over 70 years ago, and yet remains such a big part of gay culture today. I can't fathom what it must have been like to be gay in 1939. But just think... if the social strives made regarding homosexuality had occured much earlier and gay couples were out and proud back then, can you imagine what our world would look like today?
