Welcome to our ‘famous 8’ celebrity lesbian couples
Prominent women identifying as lesbians sometimes kept their love private. But society has moved on, and now they are free to celebrate their celebrity status. The general acceptance of their love, and the fact that same-sex relationships are widely accepted in the modern era – and guarded by legislation – should be a source of inspiration for users of lesbian dating apps the world over!
Ellen Page and Emma Portner
Canadian actress Page, made a breakthrough performance as the pregnant teen in Juno, gaining critical plaudits, not to mention multiple award nominations, including a prestigious Academy Award nomination. She made renowned dancer and choreographer Portner on Instagram – a very 21st century way for lesbian singles to connect! – eventually announcing they had married in 2018. They separated in 2021, but their partnership certainly shone brightly for some time, pointing the way for younger lesbians who might still be apprehensive about the thought of being public about their preferance for dating other females.
Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer
Wright is a prominent US country music star, whose single ‘Single White Female’ hit the number one spot in the charts in 1999. As well as being a bestselling singer, she has also been an outspoken activist for LGBTQ+ dating since coming out. After spending so long hiding her true sexual identity, Wright encouraged fellow country performers to be honest about their feelings, in a genre of music popular in America’s most conservative region, the Southern States, or so-called Bible Belt, where there has traditionally been backward attitudes to same-sex dating, especially lesbian dating. She married Blitzer, a marketing director from Sony Music, in 2011. Wright gave birth to twin boys in 2013.
Melissa Etheridge and Julie Cypher
Although this famous lesbian couple separated in 2000, their relationship is worth mentioning, because not only did they start dating in public, they went on to raise children. Multi-Grammy Award winning singer and musician Melissa Etheridge got into a long-term partnership with filmmaker Julie Cypher in the 1990s. Cypher became pregnant with sperm donated by veteran US rocker David Crosby, of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young fame. Their journey was remarkably inspirational for women seeking love with other women, who are also driven by their biological clock.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
This prominent celeb lesbian couple first met at a Hollywood social event over 20 years ago. Altough they didn’t start dating from that point, their attraction developed. According to Portia, who was starring in the hit TV show Ally McBeal at the time, because she was still discovering her own sexuality, she didn’t entertain the notion of romance immediately. That changed in 2005, when Portia came out as a lesbian, and re-ignited their connection. When California’s same-sex marriage ban was lifted in 2008, they tied the knot and set up home in Beverly Hills.
Jenna Wolfe and Stephanie Gosk
Wolfe and Gosk met when they were both working as correspondents for NBC News. Easily settling into the role of a power couple and w-l-w icons, they now have two daughters together.
Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison
Foster is undoubtedly A-list Hollywood, having starred in, written, directed and produced multiple hit films. In 2014 she married well-kmown actress and photographer Hedison, star of numerous films and TV lesbian drama The L Word.
Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner
Tomlin is a multi-award winning veteran of numerous US films and TV shows, with a successful career spanning several decades. In 1971 she started dating director and comedy writer Wagner, after collaborating on the after-school TV special, J.T. Although they kept their intimate connection secret, they eventually tied the knot in 2013.
Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor
Paulson may be many years the junior of Two And A Half Men star Taylor, but the star of the cult TV series American Horror Story has been in a committed relationship with her since 2015. Their openness in declaring their love for each other has confronted all sorts of barriers that much of conventional, conservative society likes to impose on the w-l-w dynamic, not to mention the occasional raised eyebrow over an age difference of 32 years.
