It's Bette Midler's birthday!

The singer, actress, and all around fabulous diva is turning 71 years old today. We absolutely love Bette and think she is the best icon our community has. Want proof? Here are 11 reasons to back this (intense) claim up. 

1. She got her start performing in the bathhouses of New York City.

2. And she acknowledges that still to this day.

3. Halloween is our Christmas, and Hocus Pocus is the only Halloween film that matters. 

4. Her character in First Wives Club says everything we would say. 

5. Her Twitter is hilarious.

6. She is shady as fuck on there.

7. But she also uses it to speak for our community. 

8. Her Sophie Tucker jokes are crude as all hell and they crack us up. 

9. Oh yeah, she despises Trump just as much as we do.

10. She is about to take Broadway by storm in the revival of Hello, Dolly!

11. And of course, that voice.
