220: Real Love

By Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster

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 and Tessa Thompson (or Lupita Nyong'o), Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird and Ashley Benson and Cara Delevigne, they give young queer people hope and plenty to gossip about! Follow along on Twitter: Lez Hang Out (@lezhangoutpod) and answer our Q & Gay at the end of every episode. Leigh Holmes Foster (@lshfoster) and Ellie Brigida (@elliebrigida).
