Regardless of the show's ultimate success, the significance of Golden Gays lies in the fact that it is the first television show in history to focus on the lives of lesbian and gay seniors. By definition, this is groundbreaking television.
The Administration on Aging estimates that there are between 1.75 million and 4 million Americans over 60 who are LGBT. But many LGBT seniors are returning to the closet, if they ever came out, in fear of discrimination by the very people who are supposed to assist them in times of need.
As much as young queers, our aging and disabled people need our help and attention right now, including our physical presence. This is a simple enough matter. You don't have to change the world first, just put your coat on and go.
