SBG 21: iZombie

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Katherine Kleffner (@kleffnotes) from the Nerdy Girl Express to talk about why iZombie Should Have Been Gay, With Liv eating all of those straight dude brains, it makes absolutely no sense that she's not attracted to women every other episode. We talk the obvious chemistry between Liv and Peyton, that one time that Peyton spanks Liv in a dominatrix outfit, honorable mention for #rager and why Liv being a sexually fluid zombie just makes sense.

211: Most Likely to Be Queer with Alyson Stoner

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Alyson Stoner (@alysonstoner), actress, singer, dancer.

We chat about her coming out journey, coming out in the public eye, navigating religion and sexuality and gay puberty. We also talk about all of the things that Alyson does from running her own Youtube channel, writing her own music and her music video with Jazzmyne Jay and a kitten. Subscribe to her Youtube channel at The Real Alyson Stoner to watch her latest music video "Stripped Bare."

SBG 18: I Love Lucy

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).

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

Lez-ssentials But I'm A Cheerleader

Leigh and Ellie dive into But I'm A Cheerleader for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. But I'm A Cheerleader is a 1999 movie about gay conversion camp starring Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall. Leigh and Ellie love this movie in all it's CAMP-y glory and have a lot to say about the Pepto Bismol colored outfits, finding their root, Andre living his best gay life and the ridiculous cast including RuPaul and Michelle Williams. Lez-ssentials comes complete with a But I'm A Cheerleader 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. "Mommy Dearest." Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida).

SBG 12: 10 Things I Hate About You

LezHangOut_SBG_TWITTER_9.10 (1).jpg

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why 10 Things I Hate About You should have been gay with some help from Tina Kakadelis, the author of I Didn't Start the Fire and Burn Before Reading. Hear us out. Our lesbian synopsis is a pretty, popular teenager can't go out on a date until her ill-tempered sister stops being such a huge lesbian. Kat Stratford (Julia Stiles) doesn't date men because shocker, she doesn't want to and she wants to date women. She spends her weekends at her favorite lesbian bar listening Bikini Kill with her best friend and lover, Mandela. Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger) is the high school lesbian everyone wants to be and Cameron James (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is the high school lesbian we all were. 10 Things I Hate About You: The Sequel follows Kat to college at Sarah Lawrence, because she only wants to be surrounded by women, yet again. This one was just way too obvious. Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

Should Have Been Gay: Legally Blonde

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Legally Blonde should have been gay. Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) would be the ultimate femme lesbian heroine. We ship her with Vivian Kensington (Selma Blair), Professor Stromwell (Holland Taylor) or Paulette (Jennifer Coolidge). We discuss how Warner is Vivian's beard, lesbian sorority sisters, how Margot and Serena would make one hell of a couple and why Elle is the high femme lesbian we all deserve.  Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).
