Flip through the channels and you’re bound to find a rerun of “The Golden Girls.” And we all have “that friend” who can recite every line of every episode in real time.

To mark the 30th anniversary of the sitcom about four mature women living together in Miami, Logo is offering LGBT fans the “30 Isn’t a Drag” marathon beginning at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12 and running through 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 13.

In addition to 30 hours of classic episodes, the marathon also offers a gender-bending twist as four “RuPaul’s Drag Race” stars take on the iconic roles that have made two generations of gay men laugh.

The queens—Shangela (Sophia), Delta Work (Dorothy), Pandora Box (Rose) and William (Blanch)—will eat lots of cheesecake along with a side of sarcasm as they put their own spin on the iconic characters and introduce 30 of the most unforgettable episodes of the seminal sitcom.

In addition to the series stars, Estelle Getty, Bea Arthur, Betty White and Rue McClanahan, the episodes include guest appearances by George Clooney, Bob Hope, Julio Iglesias and Meshach Taylor. The Emmy Award-winning series originally aired on NBC from 1985-1992.

The Logo anniversary marathon will continue online with exclusive behind-the-scenes content featuring the “RuPaul's Drag Race” alums in full Golden Girls-drag on both Logo and “RuPaul's Drag Race” Facebook and twitter accounts.
