Episode 55: Rafiki This week, we're headed to Nairobi, where two of the most lovable lesbian characters ever fall in love in a movie whose title translates to 'friend,' aka gal pal, obvs. We loved this movie, even though it has some serious homophobic violence, because it also has serious homophilic love. Enjoy, queeros! Further reading:Rafiki Wiki…

Episode 49: Anatomy of a Love Seen This week, we're talking about a meta movie that was honestly a little too meta. This 2014 movie about trying to film a lesbian love scene is high on Gay Melodrama and low on pretty much everything else. It's not the worst thing? But it's not the best. Join us as we talk about sex scenes, adolescent behavior that …

It sounds like I'm being facetious in describing this but actually the scenery is stunningly beautiful, and this movie is rea…
 
Episode 44- My Days of Mercy Hello dear Gays, this week we're talking about that Ellen Page/Kate Mara movie you saw the trailer for and got really excited to see those two kiss, and then forgot about because it had basically no theatrical release.

Episode 42- High Art Hi dear queers, this one's another downer, but please don't go away! Alicia and Sarah still have positive things to say about this lesbian classic from 1998 in which Sad Artists are Addicted to Substances. It is very somber but also has some great acting! (except for Patricia Clarkson; what are you doing Patricia??) And Sarah r…
 
Episode 41: Desi's Looking for a New Girl Do you have serious 90s nostalgia and wish you could watch a movie that's a lot like Better Than Chocolate and The Watermelon Woman in its aesthetic but with no sex, no plot, and an almost entirely Latinx cast?

Episode 38: Boys Don't Cry CW: Literally everything horrible you could think ofHi y'all. As you likely know, this movie is really tough to watch and to talk about.

Episode 37: Antonia's Line [CW for rape, suicide, and ableism] Did you like Chocolat but wish it had less Johnny Depp and more women's empowerment?

Episode 36: Summertime/La Belle Saison This week we're continuing our little European tour with a French movie that has much gay!

Episode 30: Marine Story Do you have really complicated and/or negative feelings about the military? So do we!

Episode 27: Trigger Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Tig Notaro played an aging rock star whose relationship with her former music partner is tenuous but also with very gay undertones? Maybe you will like this 2010 Canadian film! (Tig Notaro isn't in it. One of the actors just reminds us of her.) Things mentioned: Trigger Wikipedia p…
