Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Nicole Maines(@nicoleamaines), actress and transgender rights activist known for playing the first transgender superhero, Nia Nal, on SuperGirl. We chat about where Nicole would be if she was still in welding class, how happy she is to be doing what she loves and the positive fan reaction to her portrayal of Nia Nal. We also discuss more diverse and nuanced representation where LGBTQ characters can be both Gayngels and Demons. From Nicole playing a vampire in Bit to a superhero, she's played both sides of the spectrum and wants to see other characters that explore the gray area in between "good and evil" where people are just people. Check out her new film Bit, the queer vampire movie we've all been waiting for on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/32PhiaL.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) are joined by freelance journalist and Taylor Swift expert, Becca Damante (@beccadamante) to talk about why Taylor Swift's Folklore Should've Been Gay. This is our first ever Should've Been Gay for an album and we could not be more excited for this pick. We talk about the teenage love triangle between Betty, James and a third mystery woman, Taylor Swift's very specific choice of words like chosen family, hiding in the closet and literally every lyric in Betty. Riding on your skateboard, kissing in front of all your stupid friends and leading her to the garden, sound familiar or just gay? We end the debate that James is a man with the irrefutable argument that a high school boy couldn't get away with sleeping next to his girlfriend and dreaming about another girl all summer long, but who could?! Lesbians! Sleeping next to their girlfriend and pretending it's a harmless sleepover since 1999. And of course we had to dive into some #kaylor theories because it's just too fun not to! Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod). And check out Becca's non-profit Pride and Less Prejudice, providing age appropriate LGBTQ books for pre-K to 3rd grade. https://www.prideandlessprejudice.org/ Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/lezhangoutpod.  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about how to carry your gays and how to create better LGBTQ media. We talk about varying your gays, marrying your gays, cherry your gays, nonbinary-ing your gay, scary-ing your gays and faerie-ing your gays. The -arrys are endless! From diversifying your gays on screen and off screen, there are some stellar examples of representation, but we can always be striving for more! We also shout out some of our favorite shows like Pose, Gentefied, Generation Q, One Day At A Time, Killing Eve and Motherland Fort Salem. What are your favorite LGBTQ shows on TV?
