Cue the Judy Garland album.

< Previous | Next >


Hi everybody,

a girl's father walks in on her while she is in her room with a bloke. Later, she and her friends are having fun and are laughing at the situation. After one of her friends, who is gay, says something to her, she makes a sarcastic remark:

<< Excessive quotation deleted. >>
N: What, being caught at it is worse if you're gay?!
A: Yes!
N: Cue the Judy Garland album.
A: What's that supposed to mean?

What did she want to say with this bolded remark?
Thank you!

    Judy Garland is considered one of the classic gay icons (article on Wikipedia). Is that enough to go on?

    One telling line from that article: Garland, as well as Lana Turner and Susan Hayward, epitomized the idea that "suffering was the price of glamor...[and] the women stars of the 50s reflected the condition of many gay men: they suffered, beautifully".
