This week, we learned Sapphire will be publishing a sequel to Push, and that Annette Bening would love to reprise her role in The Kids Are All Right. So we got to thinking about all the other lesbian storylines we’d love to see become sequels, or just become furthered in some form. Here’s what the AfterEllen.com Team came up with.
The Linster: I’d like to see Carmen after Shane, with her finding love and happiness with the anti-Shane, complete with the big wedding she wanted and family members right in the middle of it. Maybe My Big Fat Latina Lesbian Wedding.
“No you can’t come, Shane. You’ll seduce the bridesmaids.”
Lesley Goldberg: I’d like to see what happens to Randy (Laurel Holloman) and Evie (Nicole Ari Parker) in 1995’s The Incredibly True Adventures of 2 Girls in Love. They had everything going against them: their families, classmates, homophobic minds of their small-town community, but none of it mattered. It’s not only a coming out story for Evie, but it also ends with their coming out as a couple and letting society adapt to them instead of the other way around. In my mind, Randy cleans up her act and becomes an activist, butting heads with old-school community leaders, while Evie eventually turns up in a classroom doing the same while teaching. I couldn’t love this movie more if I tried.
In the future, they will both dress business casual
Plus, you know, more Laurel Holloman.
