There are now more lesbians on TV than there are straight people; this may not be true but it’s what my dad says to me every time I speak to him. “And she’s a LESBIAN!” are the words that frequently hit my ears when I visit him.
After some hardcore investigating I have discovered that my father is correct, there really are a truck-load of lesbians on TV now. Here are some celebrities you should know about and a little bit of information about each one.
OLD SCHOOL LESBIANS
Rosie O’Donnell – large, loud, American comedian who featured on Will & Grace,
Ellen DeGeneres – the Universe’s biggest talk-show host who isn’t Oprah,
Portia De Rossi – Stralian actress who happens to be married to the woman above,
KD Lang – Canadian singer who, according to Wikipedia, is also an occasional actress,
Rhona Cameron – Scottish lesbian who outed Sue Perkins on I’m A Celeb,
Jodie Foster – American actress and lamb whisperer,
Billie-Jean King – the Universe’s best female tennis player who didn’t come out of Oracene Price’s vagina (that’s Serena and Venus Williams’ mother for those not in the know),
NEW MILLENNIAL LESBIANS
Ellen Page – short actress and title character from the film Juno,
