The Gay Team

 

With the Olympics and Paralympics everywhere this year, it got me thinking about something the missus brings up now and then.

Once in a while when I point to a woman on the TV or in a film and say, “She’s gay,” the missus will light up and be proud to have another famous lesbian on “our team”.

We talk about who we want on our team sometimes – like Ellen Page or Kristen Stewart – and sometimes we cringe when we hear who might be on our team – like Susan Boyle. *shudder*.

 

 

Team material: Portia de Rossi. Image: imdb.com

 

Obviously we know sexuality is not about “teams” but you have to agree that having lesbians like Portia de Rossi, Melissa Etheridge, Cynthia Nixon and a host of others, helps us prove we’re not all butch stereotypes, we’re all different and that it’s very possible to be out, proud, successful and influential. We can use these well known women as examples against ignorance.

If you were to make a super team of lezbots who would be on yours? What is the ultimate team of famous lesbians? In the Olympics of life, who would we want on our queer team of women?

  • I don’t think Susan Boyle being gay should cause anyone to shudder, I could understand if she was obnoxious but she seems like a really nice lady

    As for who I’d want on our team, well maybe one of my colleagues who shall remain nameless ;)

  • I have no beef with SuBo, I’m sure she’s a lovely woman, crazy, but lovely.

    Kris do you want every hot & happenin’ A-lister on our team,hmmm? Maybe we should write letters? Convince them with cookies and boobs?

    Can anyone weigh in on Dame Ellen MacArthur for Ernie?

    Alright, I appologise for making SuBo the go-to example for who we don’t want on Team Lezbot. I hope she’ll still have me over for scotch eggs.
