Sapphic Synchronicity

The gays are noticing something even queerer about Good Luck Babe

Since Chappell Roan’s sapphic summer hit “Good Luck Babe” first graced our Spotify algorithms, nothing has quite been the same. Gays everywhere have been getting their full and complete life from this track, and exes who left them in pursuit of the sick, sad world of heterosexuality have been quaking in their boots. It’s a gay anthem, a bop, a mood, a moment…and frankly, we don’t know how we ever lived without it.

So it should come as no surprise that fans of “Good Luck Babe” are noticing something even gayer about the summer hit. Last week on TikTok, one especially astute group of gays and theys made a discovery that will go down in accidental soundtrack history, right alongside whoever first decided to play Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” during a screening of The Wizard of Oz.

As the group of friends watches the end of the 2019 Céline Sciamma film Portrait of a Lady on Fire—in which a woman pulls away from her attraction to another woman because she’s too entrenched in comp het—Chappell Roan’s track plays alongside the scene, and babes, it’s a perfect match. Are we surprised? Miss Roan is magic. We wouldn’t be surprised if she did this on purpose somehow.

The fact that Lady on Fire is about the “Good Luck Babe” phenomenon…the perfect timing…the slow pulling away of the camera…this is what it’s all about. It’s no wonder that the person who discovered this extremely gay piece of synchronicity replies, when asked what exactly they’ve done here, with the simple phrase: “God’s work.”

God’s work, indeed.
