    404: Lez-ssentials The Half Of It

    404: Lez-ssentials The Half Of It

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) dive into The Half Of It for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. We chat about the importance of friends and personal cheerleaders in high school, the strong bisexual vibes constantly coming off of Aster and our love of himbos. Are we making the boldest strokes we can make? We also discuss how this movie isn't a love story in the traditional sense and how we enjoyed it anyways. The ending is still happy and we hope we can get a sequel to see what Aster and Ellie are up to once they have it all figured out in college! Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Half of It drinking game because every lesbian movie or tv show should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off The Half of It entitled "Lost and Found" Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida). You can also join us on Facebook.com/lezhangoutpod and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod). Join us on Patreon at bit.y/lezpatreon for a free download of the song.

    SBG 52: Juno with SweetBitter Podcast

    SBG 52: Juno with SweetBitter Podcast

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by Leesa Charlotte (@leesacharlotte) and Alyse Knorr, the team behind Ellie's new podcast Sweetbitter, a podcast about the life of Sappho, launching October 15th, to talk about why Juno Should've Been Gay. Has Ellen Page ever played a straight character? Consensus says....no. How much better would Juno have been if she gave her baby to a couple of nice lesbians? Juno has her gay awakening, Rebecca finds a cool Asian girlfriend, who, like dresses awesome and rocks out...but we don't want to be too particular. Paulie Bleecker is a stand in lesbian if we've ever seen one and we all know that Juno's far more in love with her best friend Leah. #justiceforLeah Check out their new podcast Sweetbitter here: https://sweetbitterpodcast.com/ Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

    SBG 51: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Should've Been Gay with Kassie Thornton

    SBG 51: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Should've Been Gay with Kassie Thornton

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by actor and new mom, Kassie Thornton to talk about why The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Should've Been Gay. Even looking at fan edits, you can tell that Susie Myers is a little lesbian. She's clearly in love with Midge and we think Midge and Susie would make one heck of a couple. Alex Borstein has said that Susie is pansexual, but the show has never dared to speak it and for a show that came out in 2017, all we can say is make Susie gay you cowards! Honorable mention to bassist Carol Kaye who we would have definitely liked to see in a sleepover with Midge or Susie. Really anyone! Check out her new film: Chasing Sunshine here: www.chasingsunshinemovie.comFollow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

    402: Gayngels and Demons with Nicole Maines

    402: Gayngels and Demons with Nicole Maines

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Nicole Maines(@nicoleamaines), actress and transgender rights activist known for playing the first transgender superhero, Nia Nal, on SuperGirl. We chat about where Nicole would be if she was still in welding class, how happy she is to be doing what she loves and the positive fan reaction to her portrayal of Nia Nal. We also discuss more diverse and nuanced representation where LGBTQ characters can be both Gayngels and Demons. From Nicole playing a vampire in Bit to a superhero, she's played both sides of the spectrum and wants to see other characters that explore the gray area in between "good and evil" where people are just people. Check out her new film Bit, the queer vampire movie we've all been waiting for on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/32PhiaL.

    SBG 50: Folklore with Becca Damante

    SBG 50: Folklore with Becca Damante

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by freelance journalist and Taylor Swift expert, Becca Damante (@beccadamante) to talk about why Taylor Swift's Folklore Should've Been Gay. This is our first ever Should've Been Gay for an album and we could not be more excited for this pick. We talk about the teenage love triangle between Betty, James and a third mystery woman, Taylor Swift's very specific choice of words like chosen family, hiding in the closet and literally every lyric in Betty. Riding on your skateboard, kissing in front of all your stupid friends and leading her to the garden, sound familiar or just gay? We end the debate that James is a man with the irrefutable argument that a high school boy couldn't get away with sleeping next to his girlfriend and dreaming about another girl all summer long, but who could?! Lesbians! Sleeping next to their girlfriend and pretending it's a harmless sleepover since 1999. And of course we had to dive into some #kaylor theories because it's just too fun not to! Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod). And check out Becca's non-profit Pride and Less Prejudice, providing age appropriate LGBTQ books for pre-K to 3rd grade. https://www.prideandlessprejudice.org/
