SBG 25: Afternoon Delight

SBG 25 Insta.png

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Afternoon Delight, a horribly strange movie on Amazon Prime Should've Been Gay. According to The IMDB synopsis, Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable stay-at-home mom. Frustrated with the realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life and career that's gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper she adopts as her live-in nanny. If that isn't gay, then we don't know what is. From bored housewife to the sensual massage that McKenna gives Rachel with VapoRub to Rachel literally watching McKenna in bed, this movie just screams gay. Oh and did we mention that Jane Lynch is her lesbian therapist? Join us on this strange journey of a movie. Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

SBG 24: Harry Potter with Barbelle's Karen Knox and Gwenlyn Cumyn

SBG 24 barbelle.png

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. “

SBG 23: Cruel Intentions

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Cruel Intentions should've been gay. After a good re-watch, they both confirmed how problematic this film is. However, what if it was gay?? From that Central Park make out scene to the possibility of Annette and Cecile riding off into the sunset at the end of the film, Cruel Intentions could have been a gay masterpiece. Ellie reimagines the film as a competition between Sebastian and Katherine for Annette's affections with Katherine winning of course. And Leigh has a far less twisted ending with the Annette and Cecile getting together in the ultimate revenge for Katherine and Sebastian messing with their lives. What better way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this movie? Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

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.

SBG 20: Laverne & Shirley

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Laverne & Shirley should've been gay. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Lesbians incorporated! Laverne & Shirley are just two single working girls living together and barely ever having successful relationships with men. Do we smell a Boston marriage? Leigh and Ellie talk about the gayest intro sequence, the episode where Laverne & Shirley stay in the Honeymoon Suite together, how gay it is to work at a brewery and of course their kiss in an airplane when they both think they're going to die. We dedicate this episode to Penny Marshall because what greater tribute can we give to a feminist icon than to talk about how many young gay women fell in love with her iconic character.
