SBG 91: Freaky Friday with Meghan Gunther

We want more fortune cookies, we want more earthquakes!!! Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) hang out with Meghan Gunther (@meggunth), Broadway administrator, director, and producer to talk about the beloved 2003 body swap comedy, Freaky Friday. For those who don’t know, Meghan is the one who helped us bring The Flame live to New York City! Freaky Friday is the early 2000s comedy where a mother and daughter wake up to find their bodies interchanged, and proceed to out-gay each other, because what else would you do! Obvi we get strong gay vibes from Anna, played by Lindsey Lohan, who falls for lesbian stand-in Chad Michael Murray and immediately gets her mom a shorter haircut and cartilage piercing. And honestly, has Lindsey Lohan ever played a straight character in her life? We’d argue, no, she hasn’t. But let’s talk about Dr. Tess Coleman, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, and the gay awakening we all had to that sick guitar solo! Tess telling Anna’s friends, “I don't believe in physical contact with the opposite sex at all ever,” is a forever mood. This yoga loving, opposite-sex averse, breadwinner could have and should have been the crunchy granola lesbian milf of our dreams and yet it was a 2003 Disney movie, so really we couldn’t have asked for more at the time. We know one thing for sure, Freaky Friday Should’ve Been Gay. 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 and follow along on Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).
