‘For The Love of Judy: A journey into the queer, camp, tragic legend of Miss Garland‘ is a multimedia project by Corinna Tomrley
Artist Corinna Tomrley embarked on a journey into the specific appeal of Judy Garland, for those who favour her seemingly tragic life story and the high camp of her performance. She explored why this attraction is particularly queer and why this side of the Garland legend strongly appeals to queer folks.
For The Love of Judy is a multimedia project consisting of art works, writing (reflections, analysis, and exclusive interviews, including with people who knew Judy), and a film, Fever Dream. All mediums come together, pieces of a jigsaw that are an investigation into a fascination with Judy Garland from a very particular, queer perspective.
Corinna Tomrley is a doctor of pop culture and an artist, writer, performer and filmmaker who lives in London. She is co-founder of queer arts troupe The Ethel Mermaids and writes for publications and blogs such as Civilian, Stargayzing, Mermania, and mostly for Loverboy magazine. She is deeply obsessed with old Hollywood and about 87% glitter.
