Judy Garland Slept Here

Judy Garland Slept Here

A Guide to the Most Campy, Kitschy & Queer-Friendly Attractions in the USA

Alan W. Petrucelli’s Judy Garland Slept Here is a campy, kitschy, one-of-a-kind travel guide to some of the most iconic queer-friendly sights, destinations, and attractions in the USA.

Entertaining, gossipy, and always fun, Judy Garland Slept Here is the essential travel guide for LGBTQ and anyone who loves general fabulousness. Petrucelli has spent five decades meandering down byways and back roads and brick roads (yellow and other colors), amassing information that’s accurate and up-to-date, a finely-tuned skill that he attributes to flawless gaydar. What kicked off his obsession? A visit to the house Judy Garland slept in when she was living in New York, and the sinful sojourns he went on when he was old enough to read road maps and say, “Judy! Judy! Judy!”

With tongue firmly in cheek, this celebration of LGBTQ herstory/history offers a mix of queer-friendly destinations, assorted oddities, and roadside attractions with cultural and important significance that scream gay, pithy, and informative. Whether you’re an armchair traveler, a casual road tripper, or somewhere in between, this is one unforgettable wild romp through gay pop culture that you won’t want to miss.

Places to visit include:
  • Lube Wrestling in Anchorage, Alaska
  • The Wizard of Oz Festival in Grand Rapids, Minnesota
  • Gay Ski Week in Aspen, Colorado
  • World Erotic Art Museum in Miami, Florida
  • Fantasia Fair in Provincetown, Massachusetts
  • The Oz Museum in Wamego, Kansas
  • Celebrity Walk of Fame in Fargo, North Dakota
  • The country’s biggest Glory Hole in Arkansas’s Ozark National Forest
And more!
