31. Corinne, 38. Berlin.


Submitted by: Alena, one of her best friends

“When Corinne picked me up in Paris at Orly airport on a visit there looking like this, I knew it would be an amazing trip. She has a beautiful array of black ink tattoos — like line drawings — that she’s drawn herself over the years. A true original, she’s got her own style and loads of amazing tools for fixing and building things in a jiffy — wooden floors, tables, kitchens, custom made beds, and knows her way around  German flea markets, little towns, and back alleys. Above all, she is an extremely, extremely loyal friend with a heart of gold.”


32. Daniela, 22. Rhode Island.

Sexual Health Educator / “Funemployed”

Submitted by: Seth, her partner

“She’s passionate about empowerment, education and equality issues. Always quick to stand up for what she believes in and always willing to educate, Daniela is a strong, powerful, queer woman who has got it going on … She likes them smothered, covered, diced, chunked and capped.”


33. Danielle, 30. Massachusetts

Grad Student

Submitted by: Alice, a friend


34. Dannielle Owens-Reid & Kristin Russo, NYC


“Kristin and Dannielle are girls who like girls, and who give advice to those who are confused about sexuality, gender-identity, dating, falling in love, or dressing up like Super Woman.”

42. Emily, 28. Chicago, IL

Teach for America Staff / Photographer

Submitted by: Carolina, her girlfriend

“She has a way of looking at people that really sees them, sometimes in ways more insightful than what they can see about themselves. Folks who look at photos she has taken of them often say that seeing the photo showed them something true about themselves that they didn’t know before.”


43. Glenn, 21. Brooklyn, NY

Lead Guitar in Rock Band “Beast Make Bomb”

“Glenn has a rad little pony/rat tail she’s been rocking, she’s really good at being totally cute and a complete badass all at the same time. She also looks super sexy in hats, and her last name is Van Dyke, which has to count for something.”


44. Hayley, 24. Ontario, Canada

Elementary School Teacher

Submitted by: Corinne, her best buddy / wingwoman

“She is easy to talk to and so fun to be around. She is intelligent, dependable, hilarious, and very HOT. She enjoys watching Emily and Naomi on ‘Skins’ and looking at pictures of Ellen Page. She also pulls off a convincing English accent. Any girl would be very lucky to have her.”


45. Hogan, 21. Thunder Bay, Ontario


Submitted by: Lis, her girlfriend

“Hogan’s hotness can be attributed largely to her perfect mix of startling confidence and adorable vulnerability.”

    • Just, I don’t know, FYI?

      You never know for certain if someone is any sort of kind of genre of degree of queer.

      I mean, some people don’t even know that they are gay themselves.

      And even if a cisgendered female -bodied person is dating a transgendered/cisgendered/male-identified person, if they feel as if they are gay/queer/whatever, that’s their own damn thing, yeah?

      Nobody has the right to play homopolice. We’re not an exclusive club or anything. We don’t need bouncers.

      • Lol, that’s a lot of complicated words to describe a girl going out with a guy. Sorry if I came across as homopolice, that was last on my objectives trust me. In fact you actually kind of proved my point. If a girl is uploaded on here without their knowing by someone, how does that person know they belong on the “real” gay list? Isn’t that kind of presumptuous?
