It’s such an exciting time to be a gay lady who loves to watch fictional gay ladies. Right now, there are more lesbian and bisexual characters on TV than ever before, spanning broadcast and cable networks, age demographics, genres, ethnicities, races, and nations. So recently we asked you to help us rank the top 25. (If you’d told us five year ago that there would be more than 25 lesbian/bi characters on active television shows, we would have laughed in your face—but here we are!) After two weeks of voting, we’ve tallied the results, and here are some interesting tidbits about your current favs:
And now, without further ado, your rankings of the Top 25 Lesbian/Bi Characters on TV (Right Now)
25. Dani, Glee
It is a tough act to follow our beloved Brittany S. Pierce as Santana Lopez’s girlfriend on Glee, and while we’re still pretty convinced Brittana is straight-up endgame, we’re happy to see Santana smiling again. We downloaded “Here Comes the Sun” to our iPods, too, if we’re being honest. Here’s to early morning kisses, acoustic duets, and innocent distractions.
24. Crazy Eyes, Orange is the New Black
Suzanne Warren is an enigma wrapped in a mystery cloaked in a Shakespearean monologue. She’s got a tough exterior with a gooey caramel center. On the one hand, she’s aggressive and commanding, but on the other, she expresses such tender vulnerability when asking Piper why people call her “Crazy Eyes.” We’d throw our pie for her any day.
