301: 20Biteen

Ep 301 Insta.png

Welcome back to Lez Hang Out Season 3! Ellie and Leigh dive into the best things that 20Biteen has blessed us with. From the bisexual representation of the past to the representation of now, we talk about how finding positive representation for bisexuality in media isn't linear. We talk bisexual erasure from Willow to Waverly Earp to Karen Walker from Will & Grace. Our favorite bisexual, pansexual and sexually fluid representation like Sara Ramirez, Thor Love and Thunder and Are You the One: Come One Come All. And real life sexually fluid celebs like Miley Cyrus and Ashley Benson. It's a sexually fluid smorgasbord.

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!

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Carolyn Bergier, Jes Tom and Elsa Waithe for their first LIVE SHOW in New York at the Bell House. Carolyn Bergier dives into why Law & Order SVU should've been gay because Mariska Hargitay, all of the sexual tension between Olivia Benson and Alex Cabot and Olivia's pajama vest. Jes Tom dives into why Phantom of the Opera Should've Been Gay from Meg's unrequited love for Christine, the idea of hiding and the amount of unnecessary touching and longing glances from Meg during Think of Me and Angel of Music. Elsa Waithe dives into why Matilda Should've Gay because Miss Honey turned all of us gay. Also pretty much every actor in that movie is now some sort of queer in real life. Oh and the Trunchbull.
