Golden Con, the world’s premier convention for fans of The Golden Girls, was back in Chicago for its second year. With the passing of Betty White in 2021, all of the main Golden Girls cast members – Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan, and Estelle Getty – have now left us. But their legacy of love, laughter, and LGBTQ+ advocacy lives on through this annual celebration. A session named “Rue’s Wish: The Life and Wishes of Rue” told by the late star’s only sister Dr. Melinda McClanahan during the convention, received special attention. The event also featured a Golden Girls themed costume contest, a series of trivia competitions, a live podcast recording of Out on the Lanai with Sadie Pines and Kerri Doherty; and a Mother of Solid Gold Dancer Disco hosted by the Golden Gays.
