SBG 31 Insta v1.png

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk to serial tech entrepreneur Sydney Lai (@sydneylai) about why Mulan Should've Been Gay. We debate Mulan's gender identity, bisexual icon Li Shang and why Reflection resonates with queer people everywhere. Sydney, the daughter of immigrant parents, talks about how difficult it can be coming out in an immigrant family and how it felt to see herself represented on screen with Mulan. We also talk about how devastating it is that Li Shang is cut from the reboot, how beautiful it is that gender fluid Mulan and sexually fluid Li Shang find each other and how many other Disney Princesses are GAY AF.

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.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by Karen Knox (@karenxknox) and Gwenlyn Cumyn (@gwenlyn.cumyn), the co-creators and stars of Barbelle (@barbelle.series) as our first two time guests to talk about why Harry Potter Should Have Been Gay. In a world where magic is always a metaphor for gayness, gay magic children are sent to the opposite of conversion camp where their gay headmaster encourages them to hone their gayness and become super gays. Karen ships Harry and Draco aka #darry or #drarry and their hot summer romance doing wizarding community service in their magic pick up truck. Leigh ships Hermione Granger as the woman that no man deserves and Fleur Delacour #fleurmione as equals in wit and beauty who fall in love as young teachers at Hogwarts. Ellie talks about all of the characters who are just straight up gay from Madame Hooch, Sybill Trelawney, Minerva Mcgonagall and Tonks. Extreme wishful thinking for Bellatrix Lestrange leads them all down a strangely kinky path and shipping Luna Lovegood and Bellatrix #lovestrange. Gwen ships Luna Lovegood and Ginny, but comes to the conclusion that Ginny is a wet blanket and Luna can do so much better. #linny Listen to the episode to hear more!

According to PinkNews:

“Harry Potter will come out as bisexual and have a love affair with Ron Weasley in a new spin-off book series, JK Rowling has confirmed.

The new trilogy of novels will take place 19 years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which saw Harry marry his best friend’s sister, Ginny Weasley.

In the first book of the new series, entitled Harry Potter and the Enchanted Tryst, the titular character will share an “intimate experience” with Ron. The novel is due for publication on February 30, 2021. “
