The Cowardly Lion:
Born to be a sissy, the Cowardly Lion is probably more of a “bear” in today’s gay nomenclature. He’d certainly be at the top of the list for anyone with a furries and/or plushies fetish. Not even Dorothy enjoyed her Emerald City makeover as much as the Lion. He’s truly the “Queen” of the Forest. He got a permanent just for the occasion. And he wears his pretty red hair ribbon the rest of the movie.
Outside of those Star Wars fans who have a Vader-complex, the sextology wouldn’t really seem to have a gay subtext, but it does.
Though their presence in all 6 films might bequest them a Nick and Nora kind of relationship, their banter is so acerbic and dysfunctional, that they’re clearly the George and Martha of a long time ago in a galaxy far away.
One can only imagine the intergalactic evening of fun and games in store for Han and Leia, should they be roped in. Not even a Wookie could save them.
It would be a cheap shot to out E.T.’s cross dressing proclivities…
… but if you choose to call a shark Bruce…
