Here's A List of Fictional Queer Women Who Love Each Other.
by Kirsten F.
There's more to lady loving representation than the women on The L Word. No disrespect to a classic (I'm an Alice!) like The L Word, but there have been other women who represent what good lesbian love looks like!
I've compiled a list of *MY* favorite beautiful, carefree, fictional lady loving relationships that helped me during my time of coming out, and still make me smile when they come across my Television screen!
1. Spencer & Ashley aka "Spashley"
If you were like me then you were OD obsessed with South of Nowhere on the greatest TV station The-N (RIP). Spencer and Ashley had their share of fights, but those two gals truly loved one another... Even when the drama got to be too much. I'm almost certain Spashley sparked my lady loving interest, and if it wasn't them then it was my obsession with "All The Things She Said" by TATU. If you've never seen South of Nowhere I suggest you give it a chance! It only had a few seasons, BUT it's totally worth it!
2. Carmen & Shane (The L Word)
Let's be real, you're still pissed that Shane left Carmen at the alter. Let's be real again... You're still trying to find a bae to play "too hot" with ;). No matter how you felt about the brooding, womanizer that is Shane, you can't deny that her and Carmen were perfect for each other. Although, we should overlook the fact that they both dated that god awful Jenny. Even though they ended on such a terrible note, Carmen brought the best out of Shane.
3. Alice & Tasha (The L Word)
The creator of "The Chart" finally got herself a boo! Alice and Tasha were an odd pair to say the least. Through Alice's need to be in the spotlight, and Tasha's military background those two butted heads a lot. However, even in the midst of Tasha dealing with the DADT, and Alice outing people on purpose. These two lovebirds are a match made in lesbian heaven.
4. Poussey & Soso (Orange Is The New Black)
*sings in the arms of an angel*
I'm still mad at how their love story ends, and I'm still contemplating boycotting this show. Anyway, who doesn't love a good prison love story that doesn't include Piper and Donna from That 70's Show! Poussey and Soso's short lived romance was one for the books, they captivated our hearts during a prison outbreak. Their love will last a lifetime, and we will forever cherish them!
5. Naomi & Emily (Skins UK)
Oh Skins, such a classic show for the wild child's of the world. Naomi and Emily truly brought nothing but pure joy into our lives. As any seasoned Lesbian would know coming out in high school can be tough! Thankfully their love was strong, and they had each other to get through the rough patches. Unfortunately their love story ended in a tragic way, Naomi died of cancer in the series finale and well... I wept uncontrollably for days. However, these two ladies are a fan favorite in my book!
6. Lena & Stef (The Fosters)
Have you ever loved a married couple more than Lena and Stef? Truly these two are like my favorite magical beings of love and I can't get enough of them! Not only are they badass professional women, they're badass mom's as well. They teach their kids to be decent humans *cough* (except for Callie who can't seem to get it together) *cough*. If you haven't done yourself a favor and watched the hit drama that is The Fosters, do it right now! It's on Netflix so you can binge while you skip out on all the work you have to do!
7. Brittany & Santana (Glee)
Brittany and Santana were the unlikely pair that actually ended up making sense. Through all of their ups and downs (like that iconic slap that Satana delivered to Finn because she thought he outed her), to falling even more in love each and every episode. Nothing says a good high school experience like a lady love story.
8. Cricket & Jaycee (Hart of Dixie)
If you were as obsessed with this show as I was, then Cricket being a lesbian was a total shocker for you too! Let's be real, we ALL just knew her hubby Stanley was the closeted one, but we were wrong! Goes to show you that you really can't judge a book by its cover and sexuality, gender, and preference don't actually go hand in hand.
