Yep, we have compiled a list of famous lesbian celebrities (celesbians if you will) who identify or call themselves lesbian, bi, queer, dyke or pansexual. Let’s face it there are probably a lot more lesbian celebrities but these are our top picks/ most famous lesbian celebrities.
1. Ellen DeGeneres
Coming in at numero uno (although just because she is first doesn’t mean she’s our fave, the numbers actually have no relevance) she is arguably one of the most famous lesbian celebrities as she has been on our screens for quite some time, Ellen Degeneres. Although her persona on her chat show has been one of lightheartedness, her off-screen attitude towards staff and those that she has worked with, has caused some controversy recently.
2. Ellen Page
Proving that good things come in small packages this 5 ft 1 lesbian decided to come out officially in 2015 at the inaugural Time to Thrive conference. Think we all knew that she was gay prior to the speech but that would have taken some guts. If you haven’t seen her ‘coming out’ speech then where have you been? It will bring a tear to your eye for sure.
3. Gillian Anderson
Some readers may be too young to remember Mulder and Scully, but most of us have seen The Fall. When Gillian Anderson came back onto our TV screens on The Fall, all of our eyes popped out. She is proving to be just as hot on Sex Education, lucky for us she came out as bisexual ‘officially’ in 2014, explaining that she owed it to an ex. Imagine having the privilege of being an ‘ex’ we can only hope.
4. Cara Delevingne
Model and actress (although this is debatable as the acting skills ain’t great but who are we to judge?) she has had relationships with a few women with the most recent rumour that she is with Kaia Gerber, they got matching punny foot ink recently, saying ‘solemate’… eeek that is dangerous.
5. Ruby Rose
Ruby Rose, originally an Australian presenter then model and actress (arguably her acting skills are a little better). Probably best known for her acting in OITNB, she caused controversy when she was cast as Batwoman who is a lesbian because she identifies as gender-fluid.
6. Kate McKinnon
This comedian most of us will know from her appearances on Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters reboot or Bombshell. When she presented an award to Ellen DeGeneres she thanked Ellen for being open about her lesbian celebrity status as it helped it be less scary for her.
7. Aubrey Plaza
We love Aubrey Plaza for her deadpan acting as April her character in Parks and Rec. We have all felt like that at some point in our day-to-day jobs. Aubrey came out as bisexual in 2016.
8. Jodie Foster
Badass Jodie Foster came out as gay in 2007. Although she had been in a relationship with a woman for 14 years and they had 2 sons together she valued her privacy. In 2013 she gave a coming out speech when she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes Awards.
9. Kristen Stewart
Think we all knew she liked women before she did? Although having a few flings with a few different ladies she didn’t address her sexuality officially until she appeared on Saturday Night live in 2017 and referred to herself as ‘so gay.’
10. Mara Wilson
We might know her from her child acting days as the adorable Matilda or as the youngest (and cutest) child in Mrs Doubtfire or as Susan Walker in Miracle on 34th Street. In 2019 she spoke about being bisexual in an interview in bi.org she opened up about how she would often tell herself that she did not like girls during middle and high school.
Congratulations to Raven who recently tied the knot with Miranda Maday. In 2019 she opened up about her sexuality, although she didn’t put a label on it, she explained that she felt that she was part of the LGBTQ+ community.
12. Amber Heard
Mostly Amber is in the news these days because of her accusations of a tumultuous relationship with her ex Johnny Depp but you might not know she is an actress and model…. Heard has also raised awareness about domestic and sexual violence. She came out at GLAAD’s (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) 25th-anniversary event in 2010. She explained that she did not label herself but has had relationships with both men and women.
