15 Movie Classics That Totally Need a Lesbian Character!

Wouldn’t classic movies like A League of Their Own, Dangerous Liaisons and Thelma and Louise have been infinitely more satisfying if there were just one lesbian character among them?

Wouldn’t classic movies like A League of Their Own, Dangerous Liaisons and Thelma and Louise have been infinitely more satisfying if there were just one lesbian character among them? Using our post from earlier this year, 10 TV Shows We Can’t Believe Don’t Have Gay Characters, as  a springboard, we’ve reimagined 15 now classic movies using Gina Gershon’s super-smoldering Corky from Bound as the gold standard of cinema's lesbian characters. 

Thelma and Louise (1991) 

Just imagine if Corky had been hitchhiking in the desert when Thelma and Louise pulled up. Rather than picking up Brad Pitt’s drifter thief,  Thelma (Geena Davis) could have had a wild night in her hotel room with Corky followed by tequila shooters and mechanical bull rides at the famed lesbian bar Sue Ellen’s in Dallas. SPOILER ALERT – Thelma and Louise never would have driven into the abyss of the Grand Canyon if Corky were at the wheel.
