220: Real Love

Ep 220 Insta.png

In this episode Leigh and Ellie discuss shipping real life couples. From Ellen and Portia to Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli and everyone in between. Why do we ship them? Why does it hit us to hard when they break up? We are so invested in the success of these queer relationships because we want to see successful relationship role models, especially when the relationships on tv and in movies don't give us happy endings. With more and more queer celebrity couples coming out like Janelle Monae and Tessa Thompson (or Lupita Nyong'o), Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird and Ashley Benson and Cara Delevigne, they give young queer people hope and plenty to gossip about!

SBG 29: Mona Lisa Smile

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Mona Lisa Smile Should've Been Gay. The IMDB synopsis is as follows: A free-thinking art professor teaches conservative 1950s Wellesley girls to question their traditional social roles. This movie has the highest number of characters that should've been gay out of any other movie we've done. Katherine Ann Watson (Julia Roberts) ends the movie without any man and was the catalyst for quite a few of her students' discovering their sexuality. Amanda Armstrong (Juliet Stevenson), the only out lesbian in the movie, gets far too little screen time and leaves us too soon. Giselle Levy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is our favorite bisexual and it was impossible to pick just one person to ship her with. Betty Warren (Kirsten Dunst) is the dark horse gay of the film, serving up some gay goodness when she leaves her husband and moves to Greenwich Village with Giselle. Honorable mention to Giselle and Connie (Ginnifer Goodwin) for literally always being on top of each other or kissing each other's cheeks. Oh and did we mention Marcia GAY Harden?! Enough said.

SBG 28: Wine Country

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Wine Country Should've Been Gay-er. According to IMDB, when a group of longtime girlfriends goes to Napa for the weekend to celebrate their friend's 50th birthday, tensions from the past boil over. Full of SNL veterans, Rachel Dratch, Paula Pell, Maya Rudolph, Emily Spivey, Tina Fey and Ana Gasteyer, this movie does not disappoint. We know this film is already gay and THANK YOU for that representation. Out actress Paula Pell plays Val, everyone's best lesbian friend and the only love story in the film is between two queer women. BUT what if it was gayer? Tina Fey? More like Tina Gay! Are we right? Tina Fey's character Tammy is a gay icon in her flannels and vests and the chemistry between Tammy and Catherine (Ana Gasteyer) is palpable. Even Amy Poehler said she's open to Tammy having a late in life gay epiphany and we are all here for it. Out actress Paula Pell plays Val, everyone's best lesbian friend and the only love story in the film is between two queer women.

218: There's Something A Little Bit Queer with Ariela Barer

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Ariela Barer(@arielabarer), actress and up and coming director. You might know Ariela as Gert on Runaways, Carmen in One Day At A Time or from her coming out tweet because what is more queer than coming out on Twitter? We chat about pre-gay friendships, those friendships that are just "a little bit queer", friend breakups, when it feels like you're dating your best friend and why we feel the need to form intimate friendships with women before we come out.

SBG 27: Incredibles 2

SBG 27 Insta.png

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Incredibles 2 Should've Been Gay. Voyd is the queer fan girl in all of us when she meets Elastigirl. Violet will totally have a coming out moment in college. And the biggest lesbian of them all is Evelyn Devers, our favorite super villain. What's the gayest thing about her? Her hair is perfectly unkempt. Her outfits just scream boss lesbian. That lesbian smoulder. The fact that she can't sit. There is too much evidence to pick just one. And Elastigirl herself. Is sexuality elastic? She falls in love with being the gender roles being reversed and we don't think that's the only think she falls in love with.
