Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by Julia Lindon (@julialindon) to talk about why Now and Then Should've Been Gay. Rosie O'Donnell and Christina Ricci as aged and young Roberta are too gay to function. Roberta binds, thinks kissing boys is "okay" and she's in love with her best friend.

220: Real Love

In this episode Leigh and Ellie discuss shipping real life couples. From Ellen and Portia to Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli and everyone in between. Why do we ship them? Why does it hit us to hard when they break up? We are so invested in the success of these queer relationships because we want to see successful relationship role models, especially when the relationships on tv and in movies don't give us happy endings. With more and more queer celebrity couples coming out like Janelle Monae...
