SBG 20: Laverne & Shirley

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Laverne & Shirley should've been gay. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Lesbians incorporated! Laverne & Shirley are just two single working girls living together and barely ever having successful relationships with men. Do we smell a Boston marriage? Leigh and Ellie talk about the gayest intro sequence, the episode where Laverne & Shirley stay in the Honeymoon Suite together, how gay it is to work at a brewery and of course their kiss in an airplane when they both think they're going to die. We dedicate this episode to Penny Marshall because what greater tribute can we give to a feminist icon than to talk about how many young gay women fell in love with her iconic character.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why I Love Lucy should have been gay. Lucy and Ethel are the 1950s gal pals of our dreams. From working together at the candy factory, opening up their own business together, fighting over their own ship name (should it be Ethelu or Lucel?), snuggling on the roof together, wallpapering Lucy's living room in overalls and bandanas and trying to make a lesbian long distance relationship work, Lucy and Ethel originated some of our favorite lesbian tropes. Above all else, Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance are true feminist icons so why not be lesbian icons too? Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

Starring Lucille Ball, Desi Arnaz, Vivian Vance, William Frawley, Elvia Allman

Leigh and Ellie dive into Professor Marston and the Wonder Women for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. Professor Marston and the Wonder Women is a 2017 movie about the polyamorous relationship between Professor William Marston, Elizabeth Marston and Olive Byrne told through the lens of Professor Marston's creation of the comic book character Wonder Woman. This film stars Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote. Leigh and Ellie love this movie and have a lot to say about its thoughtful depiction of polyamory, kink, DISC theory and the power of love. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Professor Marston 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 titled "I'm A Wonder Woman." Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.
