Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out to discuss why the 2010 movie You Again Should’ve Been Gay.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) tackle the age old question of how to maintain desire in a long term relationship. This question comes up a lot, especially in lesbian relationships.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with actor Clarissa Thibeaux (@clarissa) to talk about the early 2000s “girl power” Disney animated series Kim Possible.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down to talk about about why the movie Wild Child Should’ve Been Gay. This movie is the military-free, British version of Cadet Kelly that we never thought we needed.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about the Fear Street trilogy for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) chat with author and self-proclaimed “lesbian Willie Nelson” Kristen Arnett (@kristen__arnett) about why the movie Clueless Should’ve Been Gay.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with Broadway actor and TikTok star, J.J. Niemann (@jjniemann) to talk about how he went from musical theatre gay to TikTok fame.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) chat with author Charlie Jane Anders (@charliejaneanders) about why Gunpowder Milkshake Should’ve Been Gay.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) sit down with stand-up comedian and writer Sarah Kennedy (@sarahkomedy) to talk about why the movie “House Bunny” Should’ve Been Gay.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are back for a fifth season of the little lesbian podcast that could! This week they discuss what is means to be a “cregaytor”.
