312: Lez-ssentials Willow and Tara

Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) dive into Willow and Tara from Buffy the Vampire Slayer for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. We are also joined by special guest Amber Benson who plays Tara on Buffy to talk LGBTQ rep in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the importance of Willow and Tara's relationship. Willow and Tara's relationship spans 3 seasons and their relationship continues to be an important rite of passage for LGBTQ media lovers. We talk about our first experiences with Willow and Tara, how magic is really a metaphor for gayness, censorship, the Buffy reboot and how Willow and Tara got through mental illness, addiction and unexpected exes together. And they live happily ever after! We don't want to talk about it! Lez-ssentials comes complete with a Willow and Tara drinking game because every lesbian movie or tv show should be accompanied by heavy drinking. This episode also comes with an original Lez-ssentials song based off of Willow and Tara entitled "Yours." 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). You can also join us on Facebook.com/lezhangoutpod and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod). Join us on patreon at bit.y/lezpatreon for a free download of the song. Come see us live in LA March 12th at bit.ly/lezla.
