608: Lez-ssentials She-Ra

For the honor of Gayskull! Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power for this Lez-ssentials episode, a recurring segment on the essential movies and TV shows in the lesbian canon. What could be more of a lesbian essential than the one where the fate of the world depends on the best friends to enemies to lovers finally kissing? Especially when the best friends to enemies to lovers are an 8 foot tall Amazonian warrior and a loveable morally challenged catgirl. Yes, this podcast ships Catradora, but Glimmadora can also have some rights, because something LGBT was definitely happening there. The great thing about She-Ra is there is just so much representation. Name a straight person in She-Ra. You literally can’t. Even the horse is gay. In addition to the romantic ships, we also get nonbinary representation in Double Trouble and neurodivergent representation in Entrapta. She-Ra is such a wonderful show, because even though it is aimed at a younger audience, the messages and representation in the series resonate strongly with adults. Therapy is expensive but hearing Mara tell Adora, “You’re worth more than what you can give other people,” is free. At the end of the episode, stick around to hear our original song based on She-Ra titled “Stay With Me” written by Leigh Holmes Foster, produced by Ellie Brigida, and performed by Ellie Brigida and Leigh Holmes Foster.
