The Star Wars universe is getting its first official LGBT character with the release of the new novel Lords of the Sith. Although everyone always thought R2-D2 and C3-PO were gay, the new character is in fact a lesbian named Moff Mors, and not More Muffs.

Today writer Jack Ryan joins us to take a look at characters and actors in popular culture people have always thought were gay, but may be were just good friends.

    Remember to remind people to vote on the Podcast Awards daily.

  2. with the opening to CWDQ I think it will all depend on the voice reading the lines…what kinda tone you guys are trying to set, if you are going for super-campy and gay, or something not so like that.

    Another great show. I particularly found the tidbit about Elvis Presley not performing outside of the US interesting. Elvis was a huge star world wide. To think he accomplished this stardom without ever touring outside the US stands in contrast to the elaborate world tours of today’s stars. However, when I repeated this to a friend the next day, I was quickly informed that this is not true and that his grandmother went to one of his concerts in Canada. I subsequently found out that while this piece of trivia is almost true there is the exception of five concerts. The five concerts were all in Canada. Toronto and Ottawa had two concerts each, one in the afternoon and another in the evening, on April 3rd and 4th, 1957 and another concert was in Vancouver on August 31, 1957. Of the articles I read on the Canadian tour, only one mentioned Colonel Parker. It said that the Colonel was apparently with him. The next time I repeat this piece of trivia I will have to change the US to North America.
