Have you ever seen the episode of the Golden Girls that explained marriage equality to America — over two decades before it was legalized? The show did something amazing — not only did it teach America how to be a friend to gay people, it also introduced millions of viewers to topics like coming out and gay marriage, while also slipping in a message of queer empowerment.
