Lez-ssentials But I'm A Cheerleader

Leigh and Ellie dive into But I'm A Cheerleader for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. But I'm A Cheerleader is a 1999 movie about gay conversion camp starring Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall. Leigh and Ellie love this movie in all it's CAMP-y glory and have a lot to say about the Pepto Bismol colored outfits, finding their root, Andre living his best gay life and the ridiculous cast including RuPaul and Michelle Williams. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a But I'm A Cheerleader drinking game because every lesbian movie should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off of the movie. "Mommy Dearest." 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).

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Disney Channel Original Movie Motocrossed should have been gay. Our synopsis is nothing happens in this movie, there are a lot of Motocross races, Andi is the lesbian daddy to end all daddies and helps the clueless Dean with girls. OR Andi is a trans man who falls in love with Dean and they make the cutest gay twin male couple ever (because they look more alike than Andi and their brother).

SBG 12: 10 Things I Hate About You

LezHangOut_SBG_TWITTER_9.10 (1).jpg

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why 10 Things I Hate About You should have been gay with some help from Tina Kakadelis, the author of I Didn't Start the Fire and Burn Before Reading. Hear us out. Our lesbian synopsis is a pretty, popular teenager can't go out on a date until her ill-tempered sister stops being such a huge lesbian. Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) doesn't date men because shocker, she doesn't want to and she wants to date women. She spends her weekends at her favorite lesbian bar listening Bikini Kill with her best friend and lover, Mandela. Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) is the high school lesbian everyone wants to be and Cameron James (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is the high school lesbian we all were. 10 Things I Hate About You: The Sequel follows Kat to college at Sarah Lawrence, because she only wants to be surrounded by women, yet again. This one was just way too obvious. Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

Leigh and Ellie answer the age old question: why do straight girls love lesbians? In episode 3 we discussed why lesbians love straight girls, but you can't ignore the other half of the equation.

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 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).
