Betty White Parade Magazine Interview

Betty White Thanks Golden Girls For Her Gay Icon Status

"Gays love old ladies," Betty White tells Parade magazine.

In fact, she believes her status as gay icon began with the Golden Girls in the mid '80s, which had a huge gay following. Understandable in hindsight, but I never knew! Now I'm wondering if gay men are responsible for moving it toward cult status over the last decade?

Whatever it is, Betty says thank you for being a friend with her own celebrity endorsement of gay marriage.

"I don't care who anybody sleeps with. If a couple has been together all that time — and there are gay relationships that are more solid than some heterosexual ones — I think it's fine if they want to get married. I don't know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don't worry about other people so much."

How can anyone disagree with an 88-year-old gay — and straight — icon?
