SBG 44: Empire Records

Happy (Belated) Rex Manning Day! Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why Empire Records Should've Been Gay. We talk about how the swirling vortex of gay that surrounds Corey (Liv Tyler) as she decides between her undying love for her best friend Gina (Renee Zellweger) and freshly shaved power queer Deb (Robin Tunney). We talk the pain that we both feel when baby gay Corey throws herself at Rex Manning, a man who she thinks she must sleep with because of heteronormativity, followed by the pain that we feel when she gives in to being AJ's girlfriend because she convinces herself that her complete lack of feelings for him is "normal". Oh man can we all relate with Corey's stumble into gayness, her unrequited love for her best friend, her attraction to the out lesbian she works with and her lack of desire to sleep with Rex Manning. Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).
