Retail Store Manager “for one of those super awesome girly shoe places in the mall.”

Submitted by: Gabrielle Rivera, “her domestic partner aka ‘the wifey’”

“My wife is built like a muthaf*ckin brick house… the funniest person I know on this earth — she talks shit, backs it up and then makes you laugh at yourself. You and her are now friends. Also, Liz is the kind of loyal you see in episodes of The Real Housewives of New Jersey — family is everything… she gets misty eyed whenever she talks to her grandmomma.

She can crack open beer bottles with her teeth. Also, Liz is the baby whisperer.

How could I not be in love with her?”

“Studying to Become Dr. Queer Medicine Woman”

“She’s got more confidence than any other queer girl I’ve EVER met.”

76. Marlene, 20. Providence, RI

Baking & Pastry Arts Student

Submitted by: Her Secret Admirer, “More than friends, less than lovers”

“She looks damn sexy in her baker’s uniform, especially with the tattoo on the back of her arm just sticking out the bottom of her sleeve. The pastries she creates will melt in your mouth, her sensual touch will melt your body away. There’s nothing not to like about this girl, there’s nothing I don’t like about this girl. I could only hope to make her coffee every damn morning, just the way she likes it. Be mine?”

    • 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?
