June is LGBT Pride Month and while we love to celebrate pride all the time, we’re especially happy to celebrate it this month. We think it’s awesome that the LGBT community is so well-represented in television these days. I feel like there’s an LGBT character on almost every show right now, which is totally great!
It’s nice to see a lot of lesbian characters because we know some of y’all are struggling with identifying your sexuality. It’s probably really helpful to have someone on TV to relate to, yeah?
Well, it was really hard to narrow it down, but check out our 10 favorite lesbian television characters!
Emily Fields-Pretty Little Liars
First of all, Emily Fields is one of the hottest characters on television right now. Just look at her! Emily comes out in high school, which is super admirable and doesn't care what people think when she kisses her GF. Not to mention, she's dealing with stalkers and murderers.
Santana is so sassy and fierce and just does whatever she wants. She doesn't care if people judge her, and we totally love her for that.
Anne Juergens-The Secret Life
We give major props to Anne for not being afraid to explore her sexuality even after she had been married to a man. She was so much happier in the later seasons when she figured out what she wanted.
Callie Torres-Grey's Anatomy
Callie is intense and knows what she wants and when she wants it. She's just so cool, too! She's down to earth and has it together.
Arizona Robbins-Grey's Anatomy
You can't mention Callie without mentioning Arizona, obviously. Her bright and sunny disposition is so endearing. She's caring and super optimistic.
Dr. Sadie-New Girl
Sadie is a lesbian gynecologist, which is awesome. She's hilarious and we love that she and her wife are sooo in love!
Willow was one cool character. But when she becomes Dark Willow and realizes the truth about herself, she becomes so much cooler!
Carol is Ross's lesbian ex-wife, which makes for a great dynamic between the former couple. She's got quite the attitude, but has some serious wit that we love.
Emily is shy and a little scared, but she's firm about who she is. She's super caring and will do anything for her friends.
Naomi battles confusion, but this makes us love her even more because she's so relateable. She's headstrong and will always go after what she wants.
