SBG 103: The 355 When you’ve got a drive that can kill the world, who you gonna call? 5 lesbians! This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out to talk about the 2022 action movie, The 355. This movie has an amazing cast including Jessica Chastain, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger, and Bingbing Fan. With a cast like this, we really had higher expectations. We love the Ocean’s 8 vibes, but it really could’ve and should’ve been the lesbian James Bond movie we deserve. As it is, the movie is almost comically feminist in the way it makes every man a complete monster, moreso even than usual. You’ll be happy to know that no women at all are killed in spite of several attempts made on their lives. The plot centers around fighting over possession of a drive that can basically destroy humanity. Mace, a CIA agent, has to join forces with her enemy Marie, a German agent. Mace and Marie bicker like a married couple. They hate each other, or do they? They sure flirt a lot for two people who hate one another. We think they are set up to be the perfect enemies to lovers couple. Mace thinks Marie got her partner killed in a job gone wrong; and honestly even if Marie had gotten him killed it would’ve done everyone a huge favor. They have to team up and work together to save the world, is that not the gayest plot possible? We like hot women running around shooting bad guys as much as the next gal, but the movie overall falls flat and is not nearly as entertaining as it could have been. Now, add in a good gay love story and maybe it would hold our attention better.We know one thing for sure, The 355 Should’ve Been Gay.

616: Lez-ssentials Summerland If you’re looking to get back with your ex, have you considered shipping her your child? This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about the 2020 Netflix film Summerland for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon.If you have not yet seen this movie, the plot essentially is this: Reclusive lesbian hermit Alice gets stuck taking care of Frank, an 11 year old child evacuee she absolutely did not want, during WW2. At first glance this movie does not look like much of a Lez-ssentials, but it turns out that Alice taking care of Frank specifically is the absolute gayest thing she could ever do. Somehow it’s even gayer than her usual thing of investigating myths for her books, brooding on a cliffside, and scaring kids off her lawn.Through flashbacks we see a much younger Alice in the late 1920s meeting the girl who is to become the catalyst that shifts her whole world on its axis, ie. the first girl Alice falls in love with. Vera says, “I know a place” and takes Alice to a gay bar, as one does. At first their relationship is wonderful and sweet, but things go sideways when Vera realizes that she wants a family more than she wants to be with Alice. She completely wrecks Alice’s heart and goes off to find a man to be with so that she can have the child she has always wanted. After seeing Alice get her heart stomped on, we understand better how she has turned into essentially the village witch. The baby gay to old crone pipeline is strong.In true nonsensical romance movie logic that is somehow not just an AO3 fic plot, Frank turns out to be Vera’s son. When his father ends up being killed in the war, Frank runs away back to London and finds that his home was destroyed in the bombings. Alice goes after him and promises he can stay with her forever. She takes him home and of course Vera is waiting for them on the porch. Vera tells Alice that there was no one else she would have wanted taking care of her son and she had to go to something like 20+ stores to find someone who could get her address. In a roundabout way, Vera and Alice end up together with the family Vera always wanted. At the end of the episode, stick around to hear our original song based on Summerland titled “Summerland” written by Leigh Holmes Foster and produced by Ellie Brigida.

SBG 102: One Tree Hill with Layne Morgan This one time in the early 2000s, Peyton Sawyer rocked a flannel over her Ramones tee and queer fashion has never been the same since. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with tv writer Layne Morgan (@laynemorgan) to talk about the early aughts teen drama sensation One Tree Hill. This show is 9 full seasons of total chaos and we dive into all of them to discuss how much better things would have been if everybody had been gay. Ellie and Layne explain the gist of the entire show to Leigh, who has never seen a single episode, and quickly realize that Brooke and Peyton walked so Quinn and Rachel could run. Peyton is so queer-coded it’s actually wild that our baby selves ever saw her as straight. Her and Brooke have a friends to enemies to lovers thing going on that we are suckers for. You may think Brooke’s deeply homoerotic friendship with Peyton is the gayest thing about her, but it honestly does not even make the top 10 gayest things. First of all, Brooke is played by Sophia Bush (need we even say more?). Her whole brand is about choosing herself over boys and attempting to honor her “hoes before bros” policy in spite of literally always being in a love triangle. In true early aughts fashion Peyton and Brooke are in a love triangle with Lucas, played by lesbian-stand-in Chad Michael Murray. Peyton couldn't care less about Lucas until he starts dating Brooke, and it’s so obvious that they are both displacing their feelings for one another onto him. In addition to Peyton and Brooke having one of the gayest relationships we’ve ever seen, Ellie and Layne are also absolute trash for Haley and big time himbo Nathan (also played by Chad Michael Murry). Although Haley and Brooke have a fun ‘and they were roommates’ thing going on that we could totally get behind, we actually are totally here for Naley’s representation of healthy communication within a couple. It’s not often that we see a healthy relationship on tv, so we’ll keep this one even though it’s straight. We know one thing for sure, One Tree Hill Should’ve Been Gay.

615: Romancing the Stone Are you the lone wolf that can’t be tied down or are you the relationship-seeking wooer that won’t take no for an answer? This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out to talk about the commonly seen media trope of a pairing that consists of one person who doesn’t want to be in a romantic relationship and one person who is 100% convinced they can change their mind. Media pretty much always only shows examples of this trope through a monogamous and allosexual lens. It completely ignores that aromantics and asexuals exist who might just really not have any interest in dating or romantic relationships, and also largely ignores that people may be seeking a relationship outside of the lens of monogamy. This trope is particularly gross like 90% of the time when it is applied to straight couples, but when it is applied to queer couples we think it can actually work. Often these stories play out with the man not wanting a relationship and a woman working hard to change him. But even after she does “win” a relationship with him, he still really has not changed as a person and still is overall misogynistic. There are also really uncomfortable consent issues with a man continuing to pursue a woman who consistently turns him down. The lesson these stories teach is that you can change anyone if you are the right person, which is an extremely toxic message to learn. The reason this trope feels so much less problematic for queer couples is that there is usually a lot more nuance behind why someone does not want a relationship. They might not be fully out yet. They may still be trying to figure out their sexuality. It might not be safe to be publicly out in their career. It’s not the same as in straight pairings where the man just is a ‘bad boy’ who doesn’t want to be tied down and just wants to sleep with whoever he wants (except in the case of Shane who is literally the queer version of that exact archetype). But in cases that aren’t Shane, it usually looks less like someone only changing due to the annoying persistence of their pursuer and instead just happening to fall in love. Some places we’ve seen this trope work are in Glee with Santana and Brittany, She-Ra with Catradora, and Teenage Bounty Hunters with Stepril. We also think it does occasionally work in straight media, because arguably The Notebook has this dynamic but Ellie still eats it up everytime. And we do like how 500 Days of Summer flips the trope on its head a bit, because it has the woman being the one who does not want a relationship and they do not end up together in the end. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

SBG 101: For A Good Time, Call For a good time, dial 1-900-LEZHANG to hang with us, Ellie and Leigh, for only $5 per minute. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out to talk about the 2012 comedy For A Good Time, Call, which is currently available on Amazon Prime. This movie is an absolute fever dream of homosexual delight. It follows the story of Katie and Lauren, enemies turned roommates turned love of one another’s lives. What’s even better is that it is actually written by Seth Rogen’s wife Lauren and her friend Katie. We honestly cannot even handle the implications of this backstory and we hope it means that they are all in an open relationship with each other. Katie is a late 20s/early 30 something virgin who works as a phone sex operator and is terrified to actually talk to or date men in person. She pretends to be a huge slut who has been with tons of guys, so that no one notices that she is actually very gay. She also actively avoids being friends with girls. Katie and Lauren went to college together and share a gay best friend. They hate each other, because one time Katie was drunk and got her pee all over Lauren while she was driving her home from the bar. They both end up in housing crises and of course their GBF decides the best plan is for Katie and Lauren to become roommates. This is where everything gets truly chaotic and gayer than we ever could have hoped for.Lauren purposefully walks in on Katie when she hears her moaning (instead of putting on headphones like a normal roommate), immediately inserts herself further into Katie’s life by helping her start her own phone sex hotline, and then everything goes from 0 to 60 real fast. From Lauren putting Katie’s dildo into her mouth to mimic the sound of a bj, to both women having practice phone sex while touching each other, to literally having a phone sex threeway and then falling asleep in the same bed, it all gets very gay very quickly. These women are so in love and yet the movie insists on giving Katie a male love interest. We can’t be too upset though, because the male love interest very clearly comes second to her relationship with Lauren. Right after having sex for the very first time, Katie’s first thought is ‘I love Lauren.’ She fully says this out loud to her boyfriend while he is still inside her!! How this wasn’t her gay awakening we really do not know.We do know one thing for sure, For A Good Time, Call Should’ve Been Gay.

614: Dyke In Shining Armor “I need a hero. I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night. She’s gotta be strong, and she’s gotta be fast, and she’s gotta for sure be a dyke.” This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out to talk about the ‘Dyke In Shining Armor’ trope, which we will forever be referring to as a DSA. The DSA shows up repeatedly in the media, but is also pretty prevalent within real life lesbian relationship dynamics. This trope really toes the line of being a little problematic, because it is inherently heteronormative in that it is based on the concept of a big strong man swooping in to save a helpless damsel. Yet, when we see it reflected in our onscreen queer ships, we eat that shiz up. We talk about when this trope works, whether it can apply to villains (Lucy Diamond anyone?), and whether the dynamic can truly exist outside of the confines of heteronormativity. We view a DSA as a dyke who will protect and rescue her chosen person from all harm. We love this dynamic because it subverts the stereotype by replacing the male in the media landscape. The other great thing about a DSA is that when there are two women in this type of relationship, typically they switch off on saving one another. Think about Nicole Haught and Waverly. Just because Nicole is the main protector, that doesn’t mean Waverly is helpless or won’t rescue her protector from time to time. This differs from the straight ‘Knight in Shining Armor’ trope in the media, because the hero is capable of being saved, whereas in a heterosexual couple this is avoided in order to refrain from “emasculating” the male character. There’s also the option in queer ships for a couple to be DSA for DSA, like Xena and Gabrielle. Xena is basically the quintessential DSA. She is literally a full on dyke saving people with a sword. Yet, she falls for Gabrielle, who is very much also a DSA. So many ‘strong female characters’ embody the DSA archetype, but Hollywood allows so few of them to actually be gay. We want more dykes in shining armor! Problematic patriarchal implications aside, this dynamic is delightful to see on screen and honestly is so relatable for so many queer people. If you want to treat your girl like a princess and protect her from any and all harm, potentially at the risk of your own life, you just may be a DSA.

SBG 100 Live: The School For Good and Evil and Wednesday with Bethany Brown and Devon Hales It’s time for a very special LIVE 100th Should’ve Been Gay celebration! This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by two returning guests and friends of the pod, Bethany Brown (@bethanybrown) and Devon Hales (@devonhales.jpg) to talk about why Netflix’s The School for Good and Evil and new series Wednesday Should’ve Been Gay. You know Bethany from Charmed and Nancy Drew and Devon from her iconic role as April Stevens in Teenage Bounty Hunters. First we head to the village of Gayveldon with Bethany to chat about how overwhelmingly gay The School for Good and Evil is. From the intense chemistry of Lady Lesso and Dovey to the hardcore simping Agatha does over Sophie from the second they appear on screen, it is honestly wild to see how aggressively heterosexual the movie pretends to be. Aggie gets dropped into the School for Good, a place overflowing with frilly dresses, mean girls, and dudebros. Meanwhile, Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, an extremely queer-coded school led by the gayest, hottest headmistress we have ever seen ie. Lady Lesso played by Charlize Theron. She thinks she is in the wrong school too, until she gets a cool haircut from Lesso’s axe in the doom room and decides to embrace her inner queer power starting with proudly obtaining and displaying her magic finger glow for all to see. Although they attempt to put the girls into a love triangle and give them male love interests, their efforts fall flat as Aggie spends the entire movie being a dyke in shining armor focused on protecting Sophie at all costs. In the end when all hope looks lost, only one thing can save Sophie from herself and unite the schools, true love’s kiss. We don’t know about you, but we’ve never heard of a platonic version of true love’s kiss. Agatha kisses Sophie on the lips and it brings her back to life and fixes the world, because that’s how powerful lesbian love is. Afterward, Aggie could choose to stay with her obligatory boyfriend but instead she chooses to return to Gayveldon with Sophie, her true love. Next up we head to Nevermore Academy with Devon to talk about how gay Wednesday is and scream about Wenclair. All we have to say is, ‘and they were roommates’! Wednesday Addams has always read as queer-coded, just as the rest of her family does. However, this series really takes it to the next level by rooming her with sparkle rainbow bisexual Enid Sinclair. This girl owns at least 6 lesbian sweaters, has bisexual Harley Quinn hair, and is the only person that Wednesday actively shows affection toward (in her own way). She also has a whole ‘conversion camp’ storyline, because she is a late bloomer and has yet to fully ‘wolf out’. Wednesday and Enid are literally the golden retriever and black cat girlfriends we have always wanted and are fiercely protective of one another. They start off not really understanding each other, but grow to discover that opposites really do attract. Of course the series throws male love interests at both of them, but they have so much more chemistry with one another that the boys fade into the background. In the end, the only thing that finally causes Enid to go full werewolf is her love for Wednesday as she risks her life to save her from the Hyde. We are still recovering from watching them melt into a passionate hug after not touching at all for a full season. We know one thing for sure, The School For Good and Evil and Wednesday Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

613: Missed Queer-nections with Elle Mills Your eyes meet across the aisle in Trader Joe’s. Then, your fingers brush as you reach for the same container of oat milk. The moment passes, but you can’t help wondering, could she have been the one? This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with writer and director Elle Mills (@elle.mills) to talk about her journey from longtime Youtube creator to filmmaker with her directorial debut of short film Reply available to rent now on CreatorPlus. Elle became a creator young with her extremely successful Youtube channel. If you’re not familiar with it, just imagine if Ferris Bueller had a Youtube channel. Elle has amassed 3.1 million followers across all platforms and reflects on the consequences of growing up on camera with no privacy. By just 19 years old, she had become burnt out and was very open about her challenges with depression and anxiety, sharing her vulnerability on her channel. But not everyone deserves your vulnerability, and it can get tricky to know where to draw the line when you are your own product. The pandemic gave Elle a chance to reflect and figure out why creating, a thing she truly loves to do, was starting to cause her so much distress. Her transition to filmmaking enables Elle to share her creativity with the world on her own terms in a way that is not at the expense of her privacy, and we absolutely love this for her. Reply is an adorable short film, super relatable, and features some iconic early 2000s fashion that gave us hardcore nostalgia for overalls and tye-die. Plus it's the perfect date length, because it ends right around the time you’d normally start making out during a full length film. It tells the story of two teen girls who meet and catch feelings, but never pursue them due to one having a boyfriend and some severe comphet. We talk about missed queernections and the meet-cutes that never panned out. Sometimes the what if’s are truly what stick with you the most.

SBG 99: Aquamarine with Mermaid Kristin Sparkle a.k.a. Kristin Murison “We make things gay every 2 weeks and somehow it’s gayer than ever.” This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Mermaid Kristin Sparkle a.k.a. Lez Hang Out’s production assistant, Kristin Murison (@therealksparkle), to talk about why the 2006 film Aquamarine Should’ve Been Gay. If you haven’t seen the movie, the plot is basically this: Two baby gays, played by Emma Roberts and JoJo (neither of whom could ever read as straight if they tried), find a mermaid in their swimming pool after doing witchcraft at a sleepover (#justgirlythings) and then proceed to throuple up with her and save the world through the powers of friendship and lesbianism. We can’t really blame them for falling for her, because within like 5 minutes of meeting, the mermaid Aquamarine is encouraging the girls to touch her tail and being incredibly flirtatious with them. It turns out Aqua swam away to escape an arranged heterosexual marriage to a man she doesn’t love. Her dad doesn’t believe love exists, because he has never seen it. The entire premise of that is extremely queer, because it’s very possible that the reason mermaids have not found love yet is because they are only looking into heterosexual pairings. The implication here is that all mermaids are queer, which honestly, is so valid of them. Somehow things get even gayer as the movie progresses. Aqua’s whole mission is to get someone to fall in love with her and prove to her dad that love exists. Who is known to fall in love that quickly? Lesbians. Of course the man she chooses, ie. the first man she laid eyes on, does not love her yet, it’s been like a day. But you know who does already love her? The little baby lesbians. In the end, the girls risk their lives to save Aqua and realize that they love her the same way that they love each other. When they tell her, she realizes she loves them too and one of her happy tears falls into the ocean causing her dad to immediately cease his rage storm. Her dad now knows love really does exist. But, canonically, he only knows gay love exists. He has zero proof that heterosexual love is a real thing. Aquamarine goes back to her pod to spread the gay agenda like an aquatic lesbian Jesus and we can only assume that all the previously loveless mermaids are now happily pairing off into queer partnerships, throuples, and polycules. We know one thing for sure, Aquamarine Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

"Two Lesbians Can Be Just Friends" w/ Valerie Complex (Re-Release) We are THRILLED to be joined by the astute and prolific Valerie Complex to talk about all things Portrait of a Lady On — Er…Female Gaze. We definitely do not spend half of this episode talking about how much we love a certain sapphic film and instead talk about why it makes a huge difference to treat women as subjects, not objects, on screen. Valerie is a film critic and freelance writer, and also a member of Portrait nation. Oh no, we did it again. We swear that's not all we talk about. There's also much discussion about negative experiences we've had in France, like when Valerie went to Cannes and saw – you guessed it – Portrait of a Lady On Fire. After nerding out about or favorite femme-heavy flicks, we answer an interesting question from a listener who is hung up on a past fling!As a reminder, you can listen to past Dyking Off Topic episodes with Carolyn and Melody on our Patreon for $5/month.Sponsored by BetterHelp Online Therapy: As a listener, you’ll get 10% off your first month by visiting our sponsor at betterhelp.com/do  Learn more about your ad choices.

612: Lez-ssentials The Handmaiden If we could be yours for ten minutes, what would you give in exchange? This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about the 2016 Korean lesbian film The Handmaiden for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. If you have not yet seen this movie, do not listen to this episode until you have! It is highly spoiler heavy and the movie is honestly best when you go into it with no expectations. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. The Handmaiden is an emotional rollercoaster, but you can breathe easier knowing that there is a happy ending for our lesbians. The story follows Sook-Hee, a young woman who is hired to be a handmaiden for Japanese heiress, Lady Hideko. We soon learn that she was actually hired by The Count to help him defraud Lady Hideko and steal all her riches. The Count had planned to elope with Lady Hideko, take her money, and then leave her in an asylum. Things get tricky when unbeknownst to The Count, Sook-Hee begins sleeping with Lady Hideko so that the Lady can practice for married life (as one does) and inadvertently catches feelings for her.Lady Hideko may be marrying The Count, but there is no question about her sexuality. She sleeps with Sook-Hee under the guise of practicing for The Count, but then completely refuses to sleep with him even to consummate their marriage. So what was all that “practice” actually for? Lady Hideko, we know what you are. This is where things start to get really problematic for our lesbians. Even though she won’t sleep with him, Lady Hideko sees The Count as a way out from living with her extremely creepy, sexually abusive uncle. The two elope, cash out Hideko’s inheritance, and trick the people at the asylum into thinking Sook-Hee is Lady Hideko so that Sook-Hee can be committed in her place and Hideko’s uncle will be none the wiser.At first watch, we were worried that this was going in the direction most lesbian films go, with one woman betraying the other and going off with a man in the end, and the other woman suffering or even dying. Luckily for everyone, this is not the case. Sook-Hee manages to flee the asylum and reunites with Lady Hideko who escapes The Count and steals back her fortune by slipping opium into his wine. They get on the ferry to Shanghai and flee together, and the gross perverted uncle and the swindling “Count” are both killed from mercury poisoning. The Handmaiden features a wildly explicit, surprisingly long lesbian sex scene, a happy ending for Lady Hideko and Sook-Hee, and a well-deserved tragic death for the incredibly problematic men! What more could we ask for? At the end of the episode, stick around to hear our original song based on The Handmaiden titled “Fool For Me” written by Leigh Holmes Foster, produced by Ellie Brigida, and performed by Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster.

"Doctor Role Play" w/ Ro White (Re-release) Let's talk about hand sex, baby! Ro White is the new sex and dating editor at Autostraddle, and they're here to get fist-deep into our topic. Though as we learn, fisting is about fullness, not depth. We dyke out about the benefits of digital stimulation, and the role it plays in queer sex. Period sex? Squirting? Fisting? Masturbation? We're rounding all the bases. Plus, Ro talks about how Autostraddle is truly doing the gay lord's work by bringing the queerest, inclusive content to help you navigate your love life. But first, Carolyn and Melody recap their first L Word watch parties as Henrietta Hudson. And, see if they can top those events for their gayest thing! Plus, we end with a different type of listener question that required a little extra prep.

SBG 98: The Princess Bride with Kendall Payne My name is Iñigo Montoya and I am the King of holding grudges. Prepare to die. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Brooklyn based queer filmmaker and stand-up comedian Kendall Payne (@kendallxpayne) to talk about why the 1987 classic The Princess Bride Should’ve Been Gay. The movie focuses on the love story between drag queen and OG cottagecore lesbian Princess Buttercup and drag king The Dread Pirate Roberts, ie. the masked masc lesbian Westley. Genuinely, what is queerer than going undercover as a pirate? The Dread Pirate Roberts walked so that the pirates in Our Flag Means Death could run. Buttercup and Westley are in love, but have to keep their relationship in the closet from the completely nonexistent people who would object on the farm. Prince Humpadick, as we will be referring to him the entire time, has to marry Buttercup because he needs to beard up in order to keep his relationship with Dungeon Daddy Tyrone, the six-fingered man, a secret. Luckily Humpadick actually does Buttercup a favor by having a gaggle of gay men kidnap her before she can be forcibly wed into compulsory heterosexuality. They are meant to kill her but she is rescued by her masked masc lover Westley. Buttercup and Westley aren’t the only queer ship in town. We also have Iñigo who is in love with Fezzik (they literally ride off into the sunset on horses together), and Prince Humpadick and Tyrone who spend a little too much time in that sex dungeon to be successfully hiding their relationship. Even the characters who are not in relationships are queer; there is no way anyone would confuse Vizzini for a straight man. The film really leans into the camp of the plot and truly what is gayer than camp? We know one thing for sure, The Princess Bride Should’ve Been Gay.

611: Finding Your HER-d with Jill O'Sullivan There has never been a better time to find your HER-d! This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Jill O’Sullivan, community manager and event host at HER (@hersocialapp), to talk about queer dating, the importance of queer spaces both online and in person, and how HER helps people find their community. HER is a dating and social community app for queer folks that you most likely have downloaded at some point. If you haven’t checked it out in awhile, you may be surprised to find out that it’s actually not just a dating space. It began as a dating space for queer women and has evolved into a much larger social community for everyone under the queer umbrella. Sure you can still swipe to your heart's content, but once you’re done swiping, take some time to check out the social scene. There are social communities for everything your little queer heart could want, including spaces to talk about media like tv shows, movies, and podcasts. Watching a new show and really excited to talk about it? There’s a space for that! Whether you are looking for romance or friendship, you will be able to find it on the HER app. There are even spaces specifically for the asexual community, which can be challenging to find elsewhere. Additionally, HER hosts plenty of events, including many virtual events, like speed dating, queer book clubs, movie nights, and more! With the decline in lesbian bars and the lingering concerns about the pandemic, it can be difficult to find your tribe in person, especially if you do not live in a major metro area. Whether you find local friends on HER or not, you are bound to find people you vibe with and make lasting connections online. Nowadays everyone knows someone who met their partner or bestie online, heck even Jill met her partner online (before it was cool). If you have been struggling to find queer community in your area, definitely give HER a try. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

Not all Lesbian Couples Need to be parents Not all humans firstly needs to be parents. Having this conversation in a Lesbian space as especially knowing that women are the creators and nurturers of life into earth. And so, there is this obligation society has place on women thay even when she is not of a purpose to be a mother – society's control over multiplying the earth as the sole mission for every vagina or woman owner. No! Not all lesbians needs to be parents to validate their divine love and connection. There is a lot that goes into being parents.

SBG 97: Thunder Force Every queer person has that one childhood friendship that was just a little too intense to be platonic. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about the 2021 Netflix superhero comedy Thunder Force. This movie stars Melissa McCarthy as Lydia and Octavia Spencer as Emily being so incredibly gay together that even Emily’s grandmother ships them. Lydia and Emily have the best meet-cute. Little Lydia saves the day by knocking out Emily’s bullies and then they bond on the swings. Later on Emily literally makes them rainbow friendship bracelets. This is the type of romantic soulmate level backstory that we wish actual lesbian films would have. Of course, Emily and Lydia end up having an overly intense friend breakup. Then we jump forward in time. Even after 20 years have passed, Lydia has nothing but love for Emily and has been pining after her all this time. She hasn’t even seen Emily for 2 decades and Lydia is still fully secure in the fact that they are best friends. Thunder Force was massively underappreciated and only got a 21% on Rotten Tomatoes, because whenever there are two female leads in a superhero movie there tends to be a disappointing lack of support. However, this movie is 100% worth the watch for Melissa McCarthy’s humor and the most adorable love story between Emily and Lydia. We’re just going to pretend that they get married with the cake topper Emily’s grandma made and they went on to be a family with Emily’s daughter Tracy. Several of the other characters in this movie were super queer too, like Tracy, the Shane wannabe, Laser, the flamboyant guy who kills all his boyfriends after he gets bored with them, The King, and the obvious lesbian, Allie. Throughout the movie it’s like a running joke that Lydia and Emily are gay together. It’s treated like a joke the entire time by everyone except Lydia’s grandma who knows lesbian soulmates when she sees them and eagerly awaits their wedding. We know one thing for sure, Thunder Force Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

"Walk Like An Egyptian" w/Sabrina Jalees (Re-release) The super hilarious Sabrina Jalees (Carol's Second Act) is letting us get all up in her jizzness as we dyke out about her queer family. Sabrina gives us all the deets into how Wolfie came to be, and why she's the daddy. We talk about how queer families are still sometimes othered, but we're also freaking out every time we see one in the wild. Plus, why are straight people always telling us who will steal our baby? And if that's not enough, we crack the code on how to signal to others that you're queer. We've got a whole lineup of gayest things to talk through this week as we are truly living our best lives. Finally, we end on a question from a listener who isn't really feeling her sweet pandemic boyfriend.Sponsored by BetterHelp Online Therapy: As a listener, you’ll get 10% off your first month by visiting our sponsor at betterhelp.com/do  Learn more about your ad choices.

610: Make It Bert So Good with Lea Robinson Attention FRUITS! Somehow it is 2023, and we still don’t have a renewal announcement for A League of Their Own. We ride at dawn. This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with actor Lea Robinson (@le_robinson_) to talk about their role as Uncle Bertie on Amazon Prime’s series A League of Their Own. If you somehow have not yet had a chance to watch ALOTO, do so right now or be prepared to hear some spoilers from Season 1. There are so many wonderful things about this series, but the hands down absolute best is just how incredibly GAY it is. We are so used to being tossed crumbs of queer content or being reduced to side characters (or suffering some horrible tragic ending if we are the main characters), but ALOTO changes the playing field by making nearly every character queer. You’re likely not only to see yourself represented, but also to see your friends and the lives of other people in the community represented who you may not typically see in your daily life. It doesn’t even matter if you like baseball or not, you will feel seen. This inclusive representation is one of the huge draws that has queer people all around the world resonating with the show. ALOTO does a fantastic job of providing representation both on screen and behind the camera and it really feels like it’s by queer people for queer people. We talked to Lea about their role as Bertie, a trans man who is living his best possible life for the time period. Bertie is so incredibly gender-affirming to see on screen. He is always sharply dressed, holds himself very confidently, and lives life largely unmasked being his authentic self. While Uncle Bertie is estranged from much of his family, he is overall happy with his life and himself as a person. His story shows not only Max that life can work out for trans and nonbinary people, but also the audience. To be able to see Bertie strut by in those fabulous suits that he makes himself is life-affirming for an audience of queer, trans, and nonbinary people who truly understand the courage it takes to be authentically yourself in a world where being yourself is demonized (and in those days, criminalized). He lives proudly and is a beacon of hope for everyone struggling with their sexuality and gender identity.

"The Coolest Lesbian Aesthetic" w/ Joanna Bradley (Re-Release) Madras shorts, Kangol hats, 'Menswear,' vests, bold blazers, purposefully bad dye jobs…the spectrum of style in our community is wide and varied. So what is the lesbian aesthetic? Writer and comedian Joanna Bradley (SNL, The Break with Michelle Wolf) reflects on her own style, and that of other queer women she's encountered over the years. Can you tell if someone is a lez just by looking at them? What's that thing that makes you see someone and think "they're on my team?" Are style choices just holdovers from previous decades, or are we just admiring the trends that came before us? Has our fashion always influenced the straights, or is TikTok making us mainstream? But first, Melody breaks down why Demi dodged a bullet, and Carolyn confesses her questionable lesbian fashion choice. Then again, isn't a utilitarian fashion choice the most lesbian of all? Finally, we end with a listener question that coincidently ties nicely into our banter about Demi's ex-fiance.Sponsored by BetterHelp Online Therapy: As a listener, you’ll get 10% off your first month by visiting our sponsor at betterhelp.com/do  Learn more about your ad choices.

SBG 96: The Sound of Music with Kristin Key “Do, is queer is really queer. Gay, this movie’s really gay. Me, I’m also very gay.” If you sung that to the tune of “Do-Re-Mi”, you’re in the right place. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with comedian Kristin Key (@thekristinkey) to talk about the 1965 classic, The Sound of Music. If you somehow have not yet seen this movie, we are very sorry about your childhood. On the other hand, if you were obsessed with Maria as a little kid, congratulations! You’re gay now. For every little kid who really liked Maria and watched the movie on a loop (an impressive feat considering it took up 2 whole VHS tapes) or demanded a matching pageboy haircut, we absolutely need to talk about this musical. Aside from Maria’s tomboy appearance, cottagecore tendencies, and desire to bring her acoustic guitar everywhere she goes, perhaps the most stark evidence of her gayness is how much she loves women. Her favorite things include “girls in white dresses” and there’s really no heterosexual explanation for that. She also has not been at the abbey for all that long and somehow she already has all the nuns obsessed with her, which honestly is very valid of them. The Mother Abbess sees Maria getting all her nuns in a tizzy and realizes she needs to send her favorite baby gay “out” into the world. So she sends her to the only other gay she knows, Captain “GAYORG” Von Trapp (sure it’s spelled Georg but come on). The Captain is perhaps the gayest character in the entire movie. He is incredibly sassy, cares way too much about fashion (so much so that he has fabric on standby), and brings home his close personal friend Max to stay with them. Uncle Max? We’re not buying it. That’s a hidden in plain sight secret gay lover. Then we get to the Baroness and even though she should be jealous or wary of Maria, she spends her time flirting with her. Maria seems to enjoy flirting with the Baroness as well, using puppets to delight her. Honestly what is a gayer communication method than using puppets to flirt with your crush? There isn’t one. The Captain and Maria are just never a believable couple. The one time they do kiss they both look incredibly awkward. There is no doubt in our minds that their relationship is just both of them bearding up because it’s the 30’s in Austria and that’s just what gays had to do. We know one thing for sure, The Sound of Music Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

"You Can Love Multiple People" w/ Ashley Ray (Re-release) If monogamy isn't for you, you never want to merge bank accounts with someone, but you're got a lot of love to give (and hope to receive it back), then perhaps solo polyamory is right for you! Comedian and writer Ashley Ray has been living that solo polyamory life (in a pandemic no less!) and joins us to correct common misconceptions about her love life. We talk about the funny and tragic red flags she sifts through when dating, how people react to her relationship structure, and why structure and communication are so important. Plus, she talks about her wild zodiac dating experiment which we hope gets made into a TV show. This episode just may leave you polycurious! Plus, Carolyn and Melody talk about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The DNC, The Chicks, and our polar opposite gayest things of the week! Finally, we end with a question from a listener who seems to be the victim of an emotional terrorist.Sponsored by BetterHelp Online Therapy: As a listener, you’ll get 10% off your first month by visiting our sponsor at betterhelp.com/do  Learn more about your ad choices.

609: Gay-ncient History with Kirsty Loehr Are you a card carrying Daughter of Bilitis? This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with writer and English teacher Kirsty Loehr (@KirstyLoehr) to talk about her book, A Short History of Queer Women, which teaches readers about the women throughout history that were very much not “just friends” in a way that is both informative and incredibly funny. Although the historical stories of queer women tend to be depressing, Kirsty imbues her work with humor that really helps to showcase who these women were rather than focusing on the tragedy of their circumstances. If you’ve ever wondered where some of the lesbian stereotypes and jokes we use today originated from, this book is one you need to pick up. Queer women have been around forever. We didn’t just disappear after Sappho and reappear with Ellen, and yet much of our history is ignored or purposefully re-written to be less queer than it was. For example, the Daughters of Bilitis invented the idea of the card-carrying lesbian. Not only did they invent the very first lesbian magazine, but they also had membership cards and a manifesto and everything! They were very dedicated to the cause. Queer people have always been incredibly inventive and creative. Going back all the way to Sappho, she literally invented the guitar pick so that she could cut her nails to pleasure women while maintaining her ability to play the guitar. Ingenious! On behalf of musical queers everywhere, thank you Sappho. If you enjoyed Gentleman Jack, you won’t want to miss us talking to Kirsty about Anne Lister and the way the show captured the experience of being a lesbian in that time period where most people could not even conceive of the idea of two women being anything but friends. We also talk about former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and the incredibly romantic letters she used to exchange with her “friend” Lorena Hickok (whom she nicknamed Hick). They were clearly having a love affair and yet people still deny it to this day. We mourn for the more explicit letters that Hick actually burned rather than choosing to expose Eleanor. Surely if those letters had not been burned, there would be less of a debate around whether they were actually a couple. It is important to look back on the history of queer women and to learn about the sapphics who helped us get to where we are today. They could never have even imagined a world where they could marry and have a family with another woman and to forget their contributions would be a disservice to queer women everywhere.

65 – The Professional Lesbian The Well Established Lesbian is back at it, both the online dating AND the stand up comedy. Now all she has to do is land a date and a gig. Will this new local potential love interest be the real thing or is the WEL being led out to sea once more? And if she is real, will she let the WEL keep her socks on? Or is that the kind of thing that marks her out as an amateur lesbian? Well Established, sure, Professional? Probably not. Maybe the WEL can learn something from a headlining Lesbian. Or maybe comedy isn’t where her talents really lay, the Christmas rom-com is starting to come together…

Warrior Nun S1: God'll Get Over It It’s a season 1 recap extravaganza! We jump into the lore of the show, the halo’s powers, divinium baby Michael, and of course our queen shotgun Mary. We then dive into Ava and Beatrice’s backstories and the moments that set the stage for Avatrice’s take over of the world and our hearts in season 2.
SBG 95: The Princess Switch with Colette McIntyre It’s time to make the yuletide gay! Come for the Christmas cheer and stay for Vanessa Hudgens putting her whole Vanessa Hudgussy into the tango while another Vanessa Hudgens does backflips into a split while slinking sexily around a bunch of lasers while a third Vanessa Hudgens meets with a convent disciplinary board on behalf of the Vanessa Hudgens that previously kidnapped her. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with writer and comedian Colette McIntyre (@yungbabayaga) to talk about the Netflix Christmas romcom trilogy The Princess Switch, which we will now forever be referring to as P Swi. If you haven’t seen these movies, buckle up because you are in for a holigay treat. The basic premise of the trilogy is that Vanessa Hudgens is actually 3 identical women, all of whom are gay af and who have to continually swap back and forth pretending to be one another for progressively more ludicrous reasons in fantasy European countries that somehow are within like a 2 hour flight of Chicago. The characters are in theory cousins (although in Stacey’s case, extremely distantly), but that can’t stop us from shipping Vanessa Hudgens with Vanessa Hudgens with Vanessa Hudgens (Don’t lie to us, you know you saw it in that tango lesson scene). The films do us a huge disservice by desperately trying to convince us that the Hudges are all straight, even Fiona who is literally the most flamboyant high femme we have ever seen. Stacey and Edward don’t even sleep together anymore by the second movie, Kevin and Margaret are in a lesbian relationship (You cannot convince us that Kevin isn’t a lesbian stand-in, they got married in a freaking airport!), and Fiona is 100% sleeping with everyone she’s ever met while also being in a relationship with her henchwoman Mindy (they didn’t give Mindy that purple hair for us to just sleep on her being queer as hell). Seriously Fiona probably is broke because she spent all her inheritance money spoiling Mindy while on vacation at a White Lotus. The third movie is arguably the gayest, mostly because it is all Fiona all the time. There are literally 3 entire Fionas at one point and every side plot revolves around Fiona. We learn that she has unresolved mommy issues, we’ll take relatable lesbian problems for 100, and we get a really cute and quintessentially queer found family plot. We will eagerly await The Princess Switch 4: Romancing The Strap and will take to the streets if we do not get at least one additional Vanessa Hudgens (although they really owe us 2 since they did not add a new one into P Swi 3). We know one thing for sure, P Swi Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

It's hard to put into words what makes being a lesbian so dang fun, but that didn't stop us from trying! Is it the sex? The freedom from the male gaze? Underwater waterfalls? THE SEX? Is every commercial featuring a person slo-mo running through a field just an ad for lesbianism? Maybe it is, MAYBE IT IS, Plus, Carolyn and Melody reluctantly make New Year's Resolutions, including a pledge that gets off to a Rosie- er…ROCKY start.

608: Lez-ssentials She-Ra For the honor of Gayskull! Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. What could be more of a lesbian essential than the one where the fate of the world depends on the best friends to enemies to lovers finally kissing? Especially when the best friends to enemies to lovers are an 8 foot tall Amazonian warrior and a loveable morally challenged catgirl. Yes, this podcast ships Catradora, but Glimmadora can also have some rights, because something LGBT was definitely happening there. The great thing about She-Ra is there is just so much representation. Name a straight person in She-Ra. You literally can’t. Even the horse is gay. In addition to the romantic ships, we also get nonbinary representation in Double Trouble and neurodivergent representation in Entrapta. She-Ra is such a wonderful show, because even though it is aimed at a younger audience, the messages and representation in the series resonate strongly with adults. Therapy is expensive but hearing Mara tell Adora, “You’re worth more than what you can give other people,” is free. At the end of the episode, stick around to hear our original song based on She-Ra titled “Stay With Me” written by Leigh Holmes Foster, produced by Ellie Brigida, and performed by Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster.

SBG 94: John Tucker Must Die with Rachel Scanlon Let’s go gays, it’s time to kill John Tucker. This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Rachel Scanlon (@rachelsafety), standup-comedian and co-host of the podcast Two Dykes And A Mic (@twodykesandamic), to talk about the 2006 teen comedy, John Tucker Must Die. If you have not yet seen this teen sleepover movie night classic, the first thing you need to know is that it stars Sophia Bush and Brittany Snow. Not only are they both impossible to read as straight anytime they are on screen, but also their characters Beth and Kate MAKE OUT in a JEEP. The basic plot of this movie is that John Tucker is a serial cheater and his exes decide to team up and mess with him. This would be a satisfying thing to watch play out, if it actually ever paid off. Sadly, John never learns anything and doesn’t make a single improvement as a person. Imagine you’re watching Mean Girls and Regina George never falls from her pedestal and just keeps wrecking her classmates’ lives. That would be deeply unsatisfying, and it does not even come close to the frustration of watching this misogynistic playboy continue to be the reason we are glad we aren’t attracted to men. Ignoring John Tucker himself, the movie is worth watching for the relationship between his exes. It’s impossible not to read these girls as queer. You’ve got the overachiever gay, the ‘But I’m a Cheerleader’ gay, and the vegan gay wearing a literal hemp bra. They’re all closeted except for Beth who we are convinced is openly bisexual. They team up in Do Revenge style and act like they’re all dating, because when you put several ‘straight’ teenage girls together things tend to get homoerotic. Beth and Kate didn’t need to go THAT HARD for the Jeep kiss, but baby gays everywhere are very glad they did. Unfortunately while re-watching this movie in 2022, it is hard to ignore the things that really did not age well. Many of the pranks done to ruin John Tucker are to essentially make him into a girl, including giving him estrogen and making him wear a thong. This is a really interesting choice, but comes off as transphobic by today’s standards. We still love this movie, mainly for the nostalgia of watching it as a closeted baby gay at a sleepover trying to not react when Sophia Bush and Brittany Snow kissed. The ending of the film was actually relatively progressive for it’s time with John ending up in a polyamorous relationship. We are pretty sure this movie resulted in a lot of queer awakenings and if it was your queer awakening, we want to hear all about it! We know one thing for sure, John Tucker Must Die Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

607: Baby It's Joel Outside with Juliana Joel Picture it. The year is 2004. You’ve finished your homework and you’re ready to see your best friend in the whole world appear on your tv screen. You bite into a pizza roll and somehow the filling does not burn your tongue. Raven-Symoné comes on the screen and you smile. You are at peace. This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with trans Puerto Rican actress Juliana Joel (@thejulianajoel) to talk about her experiences as the first out trans actor on Disney Channel. Disney may have a bit of a contentious relationship with the gays, but when they get it right, they really get it right. Juliana grew up watching That’s So Raven and dreaming of the day she could be an actor on Disney too, but believing it was out of reach because in those days it was impossible to imagine Disney hiring a trans actor. While we all wish it had not taken until 2022 for Disney to finally get some live action trans representation, they really got something right in hiring Juliana Joel to play Nikki on Raven’s Home. Nikki is the first live action trans character on Disney and the great thing about her character is that being trans is not treated like a big deal. Nikki is an airheaded heiress and jokes center around her being truly terrible at her job as Raven’s assistant rather than having anything to do with her gender. We chat with Juliana about the audition process, how she ended up getting the role as Nikki, and her experience on set getting to work side by side with her childhood hero (and bestie), Raven. We also talk about how Nikki being trans is handled in the show. In a recent episode of Raven’s Home, Nikki and Raven talk about Nikki being transgender out loud on the Disney Channel and the way the scene is handled is perfect and casual, showing viewers that Nikki’s gender is simply not a big deal and that it does not have to be a whole big thing. While Juliana has received backlash from angry conservative parents who want to boycott Disney over her mere existence on the show, she does not let that hate get to her and instead focuses on being who she wishes she could have seen on tv when she was growing up. Positive trans representation in media is few and far between, and it is pivotal to changing how everyday people interact with and view trans people in real life. Media does not exist in a vacuum and in today’s tumultuous political landscape, positive LGBTQ+ representation is more important than ever.

SBG 93: Hocus Pocus 2 with Mia Emani Jones SISTAAAAAS! Grab your Roombas, we fly! This week, Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with one of the stars of HBO Max’s FBOY Island Season 2, Mia Emani Jones (@_miaemani), to talk about Hocus Pocus 2 for a very special Halloween episode. We were lucky to be Mia’s first interview post coming out, so we spent some time talking about her journey. FBOY Island is a wild place to be while experiencing that ‘I really don’t like men’ revelation and yet, it is somewhat shocking that more contestants haven’t come out as gay. If anything was going to put someone off men, it would be FBOY Island. We could spend hours talking to Mia about her journey, but we are here to talk about Hocus Pocus 2! It has been 29 years since the Sanderson Sisters blessed our screens and yet there still aren’t any canonically gay main characters! This feels like a huge missed opportunity, considering there already is a sequel to Hocus Pocus in book form that is 100% gay. Instead of giving us a story about Max and Allison’s gay daughter like the book did, Hocus Pocus 2 goes in a different direction and brings in brand new characters not related to the original movie. From the second we meet Becca, Izzy, and Cassie it is extremely obvious that they are all baby gays. They are going through a difficult friend breakup, because Cassie decided to date some lame boy in a complete betrayal of her obvious throuple situation with Izzy and Becca. These girls have spent every Halloween night charging crystals in the woods and we are supposed to believe they are straight? Cassie has been attempting to mend the friendship, but Becca is too disgusted by the mere existence of Cassie’s boyfriend to be anywhere near her. That’s lesbian ex behavior and we are here for it. Moving on from the throuple, the movie opens onto Fear Street 3 where we see tiny baby dyke Winifred Sanderson absolutely losing her mind at the idea of being made to marry a man. She has a full blown meltdown, immediately bearding up by calling out her relationship with Billy Butcherson, who she literally only kissed once and who completely hates her guts. The girls run off into the woods to escape the heteronormative patriarchy and meet Mother Witch, who Winnie becomes instantly enamored with. The baby Sanderson Sisters spend a total of maybe ten minutes talking to this powerful lesbian milf in the woods and in true baby gay fashion decide they live there now and will be following in the hot older witch’s footsteps. We fast forward to present day and meet Gilbert, a gay man obsessed with the Sanderson Sisters and intent on using Becca and her friends to bring them back to life. It’s hard for Gilbert to see through the glamor and the intrigue of the witches, but in the end he does the right thing and chooses his new boyfriend Billy Butcherson over his love of the Sandersons. When we get into talking about the Sanderson Sisters themselves, the obvious gay is Winnie. While we may not be completely sure about the sexuality of Mary or Sarah, we are 1000% convinced that Winifred Sanderson is a whole dyke. She is extremely over the top 24/7, maintains her story about her beard Billy for centuries out of spite, dedicates her life to being a witch because a hot lady in the woods told her she was special, and cannot resist turning every scene she can into a musical number. Plus, as we’ve said countless times before, witches are inherently gay. It should be impossible for a movie like Hocus Pocus 2 to not be gay, because witchcraft is gay; and yet, Disney is determined to keep its witches in the broomcloset. We know one thing for sure, Hocus Pocus 2 Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

"The L Word Takes Manhattan" w/ Jenna Lyons (re-release) It was recently announced that Jenna Lyons will be on the new cast of RHONY, so we're re-releasing the interview where we (Bravo Influencers) planted the seed:It's our first live recording in YEARS, and we couldn't be more thrilled to dyke out with the iconic and stylish Jenna Lyons! We sat down with Jenna on December 7, 2021 at The Wing Soho in front of an audience filled with our favorite listeners. We talk about Jenna's experience of being outed and the learning curve that comes with coming out later in life. Plus, she tells us what changed (and what didn't) in her business and personal relationships as a result. Also, we dive into the highlights of her expansive career at J. Crew, what she's been up to since, and how to get her on another reality TV show (1:04:40). If that's not enough, you'll find out just how much Melody hates the pride flag. Stick around for the audience Q&A, and then our listener question about how to get an aunt to come out of the closet.-We've got MERCH.-For related content, follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram-Help more folks find us and Leave Us a 5-star Review if you like what you hear!-Theme song by There Is No MountainSponsored by BetterHelp Online Therapy: As a listener, you’ll get 10% off your first month by visiting our sponsor at betterhelp.com/do Sponsored by Helix: Helixsleep.com/dykingout for up to $200 off your purchase Learn more about your ad choices.

606: Living in Queer with Cat Blackard Our world is full of unknowable horrors; but that’s okay, because horror is for the gays! This week Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with writer, illustrator, and voice actor Cat Blackard (@catblackard), who is best known as the showrunner of the horror-comedy audio drama, The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program. The TTRPG style audio drama is currently in its fourth season of stories that build on Lovecraft’s work from a queer lens. We talk about the inherent queerness of horror as a genre as Cat and Leigh introduce Ellie to the world of cosmic horror. If you’ve ever thought Cthulhu would be a great buddy to get an iced coffee with, you’re in the right place (Obviously he has all those tentacles so that he can hold all of his friends’ iced coffees!). The reason cosmic horror can be so appealing to the queer community is that we tend to be more open to acknowledging the discrepancies between the reality of the world around us and our own personal realities. For centuries queer people have challenged the concepts and rules that society continually tries to force onto us. Historically in the horror realm that has led to monsters and villains being queer-coded, and to queer people recognizing ourselves in that “otherness”. We frequently say witches are for the gays, vampires are for the gays, etc., and this is because it’s true. These creatures who live on the fringe of society, often at odds with society, and who are demonized for being different feel very relatable. When we get into body horror with werewolves and body transformations, the comparisons become even more obvious, looping in an inherent relation to the trans experience. Ultimately, horror is an attractive lens for queer creatives to showcase the power of being different and can provide a space for queer people to explore our identities and regain agency over our stories after centuries of being portrayed as the villains. In addition to talking about horror, we also talk about how table top role playing games are an attractive outlet for queer people to try out new facets of our identities and to learn more about ourselves through our characters. There is a good reason why so much of the LGBTQ+ community loves engaging in TTRPGs. These games provide a safe space for exploration and a way for our subconscious minds to make breakthroughs on our sexualities and gender identities through play. Giving our imaginations and subconscious minds the freedom to reveal hidden truths that help us better understand ourselves can be extremely powerful and transformative.
