The naval friend of Dorothy conspiracy - funny

In the 1980's the Naval Intelligence Service were convinced that there was a massive ring of homosexual military personnel run by a mysterious and elusive Dorothy.

Just who is Dorothy and why is she running a massive gay network of navel men?

In gay slang, a "friend of Dorothy" (occasionally abbreviated FOD) is a term for a gay man. The phrase dates back to at least World War II, when homosexual acts were illegal in the United States.

In the early 1980s, the Naval Investigative Service was investigating homosexuality in the Chicago area. Agents discovered that gay men sometimes referred to themselves as "friends of Dorothy."

Unaware of the historical meaning of the term, the NIS believed that a woman named Dorothy was at the center of a massive ring of homosexual military personnel. The NIS launched an enormous hunt for Dorothy, hoping to find her and convince her to reveal the names of gay servicemembers.
