Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Practical Magic should have been gay. The Owens women are cursed to have all of the men that they love die. Obvious solution, love women instead! And don't even get us started on their "eccentric" aunts. We all know eccentric is code word for lesbian. We recast the detective as Reese Witherspoon and totally ship a Sandra Bullock and Reese Witherspoon, witch and detective love story. This is every lesbians' Halloween dream. Join us on Twitter for Midnight Margaritas on Thursday! Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

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).

Starring Heath Ledger, Julia Stiles, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Larisa Oleynik, Larry Miller

She's The Man stars Amanda Bynes as Violet/Sebastian, Laura Ramsey as Olivia and Channing Tatum as Duke OrsinLeigh and Ellie talk about how Viola/Sebastian blurs gender roles, why real Sebastian is lame and how Olivia and Viola would be so much happier together.  Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

Let's talk about Jules. Because Jules. Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Jules, played by Keira Knightley and Jess played by Parminder Nagara clearly should have been gay in Bend It Like Beckham. If you just edit the movie to completely get rid of Joe, it's the soccer lesbian movie of our dreams. From rumors that director Gurinda Chadha originally wrote the film as a lesbian love story, the undeniable chemistry between Jules and Jess, that "mistaken" kiss scene and Jules and her bandanas, Bend It Like Beckham is the queen of Should Have Been Gays.

Bend It Like Beckham
Starring Parminder Nagra, Keira Knightley, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Anupam Kher, Archie Panjabi
