Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) chat with Melanie Cristol (@melaniecristol), the founder of Lorals (@mylorals), a queer women owned company that creates single use latex panties designed to maximize pleasure for the wearer during sexual intimacy. In this episode, we dive into the taboo of trying to market anything related to sex or sexuality and how often queer creators and companies face censorship. Melanie talks about the difficulties she faced when getting funding for Lorals due to the product being marketed for pleasure of people with vulvas and for use during oral sex. There is a huge stigma around talking about pleasure and sex, especially female pleasure. It is much easier to get funding for a condom company or advertise erectile dysfunction medication, because our society views those as appropriate sexual activities, but thinks oral sex is taboo. We discuss how just using the word lesbian or LGBTQ in a post will often cause it to be censored on social media and the impact this has on queer businesses. We also talk about the wild workarounds we have used to try to get by the censors. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

    SBG 75: Bridesmaids with Never Normal

    1:22:05

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with comedians and hosts of the podcast Never Normal, Renee Santos (@reneesantoscomedy) and Jackie Monahan (@jackiemonahan) to talk about why the movie Bridesmaids Should’ve Been Gay. Bridesmaids is quite simply gay from casting to credits. Nothing about this movie has a heterosexual explanation. The only reason anyone would have for being that jealous of their friend making another friend is if there was a secret crush going on. Bridesmaids should have ended with Annie and Lillian recognizing their romantic feelings for one another and finally getting together. Alternatively, we would accept a throuple situation between Annie, Lillian and Helen. One thing is for sure, Bridesmaids Should’ve Been Gay.

    508: Lez-ssentials Under the Christmas Tree

    1:12:49

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about the Lifetime’s lesbian Christmas rom-com Under the Christmas Tree for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. This movie stars Elise Bauman (@baumanelise) as Alma and Tattiawna Jones (@tattiawna) as Charlie and is the very first lesbian holiday movie Lifetime has ever produced. It is so nice watching a queer movie that has queer people both in front of and behind the cameras. The majority of the cast and crew for Under the Christmas Tree are part of the LGBTQ+ community. Even the wardrobe is gay culture - Alma and Charlie wear big jackets over hoodies and plenty of button downs. In true Lifetime holiday fashion, the movie is a super wholesome and adorable romance. Their families are supportive and there’s not an ounce of homophobia in sight. There’s some conflict over getting a Christmas tree for the governor, but overall the angst is very mild. This movie is very gay and is everything we’ve ever wanted for a lesbian Christmas movie. At the end of the episode, stick around to hear our original holiday song based on Under the Christmas Tree titled “Underneath the Christmas Tree” written by Leigh Holmes Foster and performed by Ellie Brigida.

    SBG 74: The Nightmare Before Christmas with Valerie Rose Lohman

    1:07:47

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with BAFTA-nominated voice actor and friend of the pod, Valerie Rose Lohman (@valerieroselohman) to talk about why The Nightmare Before Christmas Should’ve Been Gay. This movie is universally a queer kid experience. Every queer kid who grew up watching this movie resonated with Jack and Sally’s journeys. We discuss Jack Skellington’s chaotic bi energy and dive into how he experiences gay puberty in Christmastown. We talk about the very relatable falling for your best friend experience as we watch Sally pine after Jack on the sidelines while he takes the time to discover his sexuality. We debate which town is the embodiment of homosexuality or heterosexuality and the bisexual implications that holds. And of course, we dive into our ships, including examining Jack’s relationship with his toxic ex-boyfriend Ooogie Boogie and his budding relationship with the secure in her pansexuality Sally. One thing is for sure, The Nightmare Before Christmas Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

    SBG 73: Cheers with Cruising Pod

    1:22:46

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with lesbian bar experts Sarah Gabrielli (@sarahdrama_tm) and Rachel Karp (@rachel.karp), the hosts of Cruising Podcast (@cruisingpod), to chat about why Cheers Should’ve Been Gay. Like a lot of older tv shows, Cheers did not age well and is incredibly problematic, but everything gets better when you rewatch it under a queer lens. Cheers was pretty progressive for the 80’s, but we think we could easily improve it by creating Queers, the queer version of Cheers. We really want to live in the alternate universe where Cheers is a lesbian bar. We can all agree, Cheers Should’ve Been Gay.

    SBG 72: The Lion King with Bethany Brown

    1:17:59

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with actor Bethany Brown (@bethanybrown) to chat about why The Lion King Should’ve Been Gay. We are always talking about how important the concept of “found family” is to the gays, and what could be more “found family” than The Lion King? We all grew up watching this movie, and even though it was glaringly obvious the entire time that Timon and Pumbaa are gay, it was even more apparent when we rewatched it with a queer lens. Not only are Timon and Pumbaa gay, but there is a whole slew of queer characters from pansexual Rafiki with his “we are one” attitude to flamboyant gay uncle Scar and his unrealized twin flame Zazu. We analyze the Circle of Life, the implications of Timon and Pumbaa choosing to not only live together but also to adopt and raise a child together, and the queer-coding of Disney villains. We deep dive into Bethany’s notebook to learn about the same-sex relationships that lions participate in and are overjoyed to find out that 8% of lions engage in same-sex activities that would 100% be considered queer if they were humans. In our perfect gay Lion King, the great Drag Kings of the past are watching over Simba and his gay dads from above while they teach him the importance of accepting who you are and letting go of your past through the incredibly gay anthem, Hakuna Matata. One thing is for sure, The Lion King Should’ve Been Gay. Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode.

    506: Here Comes the General with Lyne Renée

    57:05

    Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with actor Lyne Renée (@lynerenee) to talk about her iconic role as General Sarah Alder on Motherland: Fort Salem. Lyne talks about the process of being cast as the illustrious General and what it was like to tackle stepping into the shoes of such an untouchable and nuanced woman. We talk about why General Alder and the show in general have resonated so much within the queer community and what it’s been like to be on the receiving end of such a devoted fandom. We of course talk about Talder, Alder’s relationship with her Biddies, and the dynamic of being both mother to all and mother to none. Lyne talks about the experience of getting to tap into her imagination, especially in scenes with so many special effects where you have to act without being able to see what the shot will really look like. Lyne shares with us her hopes for General Alder in Season 3 of Motherland: Fort Salem; and we can’t wait to have our General back on our screens.
