Friends of Dorothy: Was 'The Golden Girls' Really As Queer-Friendly As Its Reputation Suggests?

“The Golden Girls” is a seminal queer classic, one that flawlessly incorporated aging women into NBC’s primetime lineup. Since its initial airing, the show has developed quite an immense following from viewers (especially gay men) who enjoy the antics and sexual escapades of Rose, Blanche, Dorothy, and Sophia. But what I have noticed about some of the more prominent and vocal fans is that they tend to glaze over the show’s problematic depictions of LGBTQ characters, hailing these depictions as brave and flawless.

Ranking the House Down: Who Will and Should Win Rupaul’s Drag Race (Season Six)

As you may or may not know from following Ranking the House Down the last couple months, I have been gunning for Bianca and Adore to make the top two (there really is no top three this year, let us be serious here). With that in mind, it would be a real snore to rank the final three queens of season six, given all that this reviewer has argued in their favour already. Instead, let us recap the whole season, and have our own little “countdown to the crown.”
