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. New in Season 3: Live trivia events, more live Should've Been Gay shows, less Youtube and more guests!

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!
