Lez Hang Out Podcast Ep. 518 – Lez-ssentials: Girltrash

Lez Hang Out Ep. 518

Leigh and Ellie talk about the 2014 musical Girltrash: All Night Long for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. Girltrash was written by Angela Robinson, who also wrote D.E.B.S., and several episodes of The L Word, which pretty much explains everything about how wild this movie is. If you’re looking for a good time, Girltrash delivers. This movie is a time capsule of who’s who in lesbian Hollywood in 2014. We struggled with keeping the character’s names straight, because every actor is so recognizable from that period of lesbian television.

We loved shipping Colby and Misty played by Gabrielle Christian and Mandy Musgrave, who have incredible chemistry with one another after South of Nowhere. It is also really fun seeing actors from The L Word appear on screen constantly and with lyrics like “backstage sex rampage” and “first-time sex trampoline,” you really can’t have a bad time watching this movie. It is an enjoyable and strangely believable romp. The actors really commit to the character’s motivations and pull you into their chaos. We highly recommend watching Girltrash: All Night Long anytime you want to laugh, sing, and experience 2014 lesbian Hollywood.

At the end of the episode, stick around to hear our original song based on Girltrash titled “Fantasy” written by Leigh Holmes Foster, produced by Ellie Brigida, and performed by Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster.
