’s Top 50 Lesbian and Bisexual Characters


9. Shane McCutcheon (The L Word)

Played by Katherine Moennig (2004-2009)

Shane McCutcheon was a steadfast and loyal friend, always ready in times of trouble with a hug, a word of encouragement and whatever illicit substance anyone wanted to inhale and/or bake into dessert. We learned one thing about her in The L Word pilot that stuck for six seasons: Every time Shane walked into a room, a girl always left crying. But we sure did like watching the part before they stormed out in tears.

10. Dana Fairbanks (The L Word)

Played by Erin Daniels (2004-2007)

It says something about Dana Fairbanks that she rounds out our top ten even though she was only around half as long as the other L Word characters. She won us over on the mission to ascertain the Soup Chef’s sexual leanings, and held our hearts through her coming out Subaru ad, her egregious engagement, her funeral for Mr. Piddles and her long-awaited affair with Alice. Waterfall? What waterfall? Dana is at tennis camp.

11. Xena (Xena: Warrior Princess)

Played by Lucy Lawless (1995-2001)

12. Spencer Carlin (South of Nowhere)

Played by Gabrielle Christian (2005-2008)
