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).

We talk about Robin's lesbian doppelganger, rocking suits and cigars, her "friendship" with Jessica Glitter and what would have happened if the entire show led up to Lily underneath Robin's window with a blue French Horn to the tune of "Come To My Window." And don't even get us started on the guys of the show and Ted's confusing sex dream about Barney or Marshall or both.
