Should Have Been Gay: Legally Blonde

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Legally Blonde should have been gay. Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) would be the ultimate femme lesbian heroine. We ship her with Vivian Kensington (Selma Blair), Professor Stromwell (Holland Taylor) or Paulette (Jennifer Coolidge). We discuss how Warner is Vivian's beard, lesbian sorority sisters, how Margot and Serena would make one hell of a couple and why Elle is the high femme lesbian we all deserve.  Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

Should Have Been Gay: She's The Man

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why She's The Man should have been gayer because let's face it, this movie is already pretty queer.

Should Have Been Gay: Jenny's Wedding

Oh, Jenny's Wedding. Time we will all never get back in our lives. Join Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) as they discuss how - despite the film's mediocre efforts - Jenny's Wedding will likely go down as the least gay lesbian film ever made. Featuring Katherine Heigl and Alexis Bledel as "awkward roommates who have clearly never done it even once in their lives" couple Jenny and Kitty, the movie features an excellent soundtrack consisting of:

  • that one Mary Lambert song, and 
  • honestly, just that one song

Buckle up Creampuffs! Leigh and Ellie discuss the Carmilla Movie on this episode of Lez-ssentials, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. Everyone's favorite lesbian vampire and human journalist and the gang from Silas University are back for their first full length movie. The Carmilla Movie is a 2017 movie starring Natasha Negovanlis as Carmilla and Elise Bauman as Laura Hollis. The movie comes from the Carmilla web series on KindaTV and has gained quite a following among queer audiences.
