Lesbian or not?

30 posts in this topic

Okay, this is really lowbrow, but possibly fun.

When we've seen queers that have come out or have been outed, it has usually not been a surprise. This is going back a ways, but Ellen, Melissa, k.d., Martina -- who didn't know these people were lesbians?

Surprises do happen, however. For me, it was Portia de Rossi from Ally McBeal and Arrested Development. I had no idea until I saw her and her gf in some tabloid or other.

My question is, is there anyone out there who totally slipped under your gaydar? Who?

I would have to agree. Portia was a big shocker to me.

Okay this maybe be obvious to everyone else but Clea DuVal has been in a few lez oriented films...yet to the best of my knowledge she has yet to come out...usually when you see her shes somewhere between femme and butch with her apperance and style and she never seems to have a man on her arm, Im thinking when shes told to kiss all thoseladies on the set she has no problem doing so and probably gets off on it..anyone agree?

I agree that Portia was a surprise. I especially like that Portia isn't her real name. I think it's like Ethel Cumberbund or something. HA!

No clue about Clea.

Being a big lesbo myself I always wonder about the screen smooches - like... how can that not make you wanna just be even a little bit gay?

Portia? PORTIA?! Hollywood, here I come!!!!!

I used to watch Ally McBeal and wanted Portia (especially with her hair up, for some reason). I had no clue she played on my side of the fence.

Cythnia Nixon never surprised me at all. From day one of Sex and the City I always said she reminded me of an aggressive femme or possibly a femme-dyke. It's not wonder why she fit the part of Miranda Hobes perfectly :wink:

Cynthia Nixon of sex and the city

I agree with the Heather Matarazzo one. I've thought she was hott since i saw her in The Devil's Advocate and I didn't know she was gay until I saw her on some show on LOGO the other day.

Hmmm...I always thought Sara Gilbert (Darlene) was a lesbian. For some reason my gaydar was on target. She's a cutie and I'm happy to know that she's One of the Girls

Heh. I met Tori Amos once and she had a book by marrion wienstein in her hands and we started chit chatting about books, much to the chagrin of all the other fans who were trying to get close for an autograph or something. Some of her lyrics make her sound like she likes chicks as well as men. I kind of felt like we were flirting with each other in a soft femme way while e were standing on the sidewalk and chit chatting about authors and the process of songs coming to life.... but I'm not entirely sure if that's just because I think she's HOT ;-) She even had me run and grab her a copy of 'butterfly' from my car so she could remember the lyrics because someone requested it, and told my friend and I where and when she'd be coming out so she could return the tape! I don't know for sure, but I think I'll keep my fantasy that we really were flirting, but in any case she was cool ;-) LOL

Some of the ones already mentioned were my surprises, too... Portia D., Heather M., Sara G., but they were all nice surprises. :)

Most recently, though, I was *stunned* when Cheryl Swoopes of the WNBA came out... while still being an active player!

Okay she hasn't come out yet but I get the feeling that Gillian Anderson is a lesbian. If she was then it would make ALL my dreams come true...LoL I know I could probably NEVER have her but I mean just KNOWING that someone as GREAT as her is a lesbian would make me feel better. LoL I'm weird.

Also I didn't know that Portia was a lesbian...and she's SO FREAKIN hot! Usually the Lesbians that come out in the media are dogs (No offense to anyone if you are attracted to Rosie or Ellen) And Sara Gilbert? Wow! I used to LOVE her!

Man... if only! If Gillian Anderson was a lesbian? *HEAVEN* Not that I'd have that much greater of a chance with her, but STILL!!! I've had a crush on her since I was like, 11!

Thats pretty damn funny, because Portia and Ellen are together, and have been for a couple of years.

YES.

Tori is a lover of women- I don't know if she likes the label of bi- but she loved and prob still loves "Beanie"-she scribes as a thank you to her on " from the choirgirl hotel" and talks much of her on Vh-1 storytellers in a story of "Raspberry Swirl." So, perhaps she may have been flirting with you...

I adore Tori and always got the vibe she was into women before the confirmation. She is into men as well-as she married...But, she is by far "my type"- :idea: what a classic.

If Gillian Anderson was a lesbian, that would make my dreams come true as well...I've had a half naked -poster of her on my wall for years. Daryl Hannah would be a nice one too, and lets not forget MARISKA HARGITAY!!!.........

What about Michelle Rodriguez? I think she's on her way out of the closet, and I must admit, she makes me drool...

I read the other day that Michelle Rodriguez has "experiemented" with both men and women but most people took that to mean she's straight or bi. I'm the exact opposite. I think that was her subtle way of hinting she prefers women.

Gillian Anderson always pinged for me too. Every time one of her marriages breaks up I think maybe she'll realise men aren't for her. No joy so far. :cry:

Ditto for Mariska but I think we can scratch her from the list. She's doing a good job of the hetero thing at the moment.

I thought everyone knew about Jodie Foster but apparently there are still people out there that assume she's straight. She's always been a fave of mine and has pinged for me as long as I've been aware of what a lesbian is. :lol:

Jorja Fox from CSI is another. Gay, gay, gay!

Oh, and Clea definitely likes the ladies. She has an ex-girlfriend's name tattooed on her and is often photographed with her girlfriend. She's not out, as such, but she doesn't hide it. :D

I hope by now everyone knows she's a lesbian
