Join the The Qu in celebrating all things Golden Girls at their second annual 90s dance pop-culture dance party, Thank You For Being A Friend.

The Golden Girls was one of the last great TV shows that brought progressive ideas to a mass audience. The very idea that these women were living valuable lives without being partnered was at the time, and still to some extent now, a radical idea,” said Erin O’Neal of The Qu. “The characters frequently reflected on their positions of privilege, and was one of the first mainstream shows with groundbreaking episodes about LGBTQ issues. The Golden Girls, above all, exemplified the idea of chosen family and how those chosen families are valid, necessary and beautiful.”
