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”.
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?
