“Del would leave her shoes in the middle of the room, and I’d throw them out the window.” When Wanda Sykes came out at a Las Vegas Proposition 8 rally in 2008, she said she felt like a unicorn — a lesbian of color.
Then in 2009 when she became a mom with her wife Alex Sykes, she found her place.
It doesn’t matter if they’re walking their dog around the neighborhood or strolling through the streets of Rome, Ellen and Samantha seem to always be holding hands.
Comedian Ellen De Generes has been a well-known advocate for LGBT issues ever since she came out in 1997 on the fourth season of her hit show “Ellen.” At the time, it was a bold and lonely move to identify as a lesbian, but after almost two decades, Ellen has found acceptance and love in both her personal and professional life.
In 2008, after a four-year relationship, Ellen married Portia di Rossi, best-known for her role as Lindsay Fünke in “Arrested Development.” Whether they’re lounging together on the couch at home with their four dogs and three cats or joking around at a vegan cafe, this couple is just as cute as can be.
Actress Jodie Foster made a splash at the 2013 Golden Globes when she came out (though she refrained from using the words “gay” or “lesbian”) in her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. The very next year, she made headlines again by marrying actress and photographer Alexandra Hedison, most famous for playing Dylan Moreland in the Showtimes series “The L Word.” Jodie and Alex are a private couple, preferring to snuggle indoors with their dog Ziggy than play the role of celebrity.
Recently, Jodie has taken a step back from acting to focus on spending more time with her wife and kids. I remember watching the news that day in awe — so many people came out to cheer and wave rainbow flags. Oftentimes, lesbian celebrities — whether they intend to or not — play an important role in normalizing same-sex couples.
