The Official 2011 Autostraddle Hot 100: Real Gay Ladies

Hi! Welcome to the 2011 Autostraddle Hot 100, in which 247 of you send us photos of your hot friend/girlfriend/etc and we decide if they’re cute or not. JUST KIDDING! We think all of you are cute, we cannot judge such a thing. How did we pick 100 Hot Ladies this year? You may never know. Was it out of a hat? Was it “100 girls left once we eliminated all the low-resolution photos or photos of people cut out from photos of other people?” Was it a blind taste test? Or did we have Intern Grace write your names on tiny rubber ducks, throw them in a duck pond, and then see which ones the dog dragged to shore?

Mysteries, ladies, mysteries.

[there was a heavy emphasis on quality/composition/resolution of the photographs themselves, and also a hat with names in it]

One quick note: This year our original idea was to highlight 100 internet-famous/lesbian-famous people in the Hot 100 — not “celebrities” necessarily, but REAL PEOPLE we actually know/have interviewed who are just as real as you and me and are also doing kickass things you should know about. You know — up-and-coming writers, bloggers, musicians, thinkers & comedians near/dear to our tiny hearts.

Although the intent would be to give you “real people” whose awesomeness we’ve witnessed first-hand (rather than from our couch staring at the teeevee), we worried it might be interpreted as cliquey. SO we ended up scratching that idea in favor of having you submit your hot friends, but in honor of that OG idea we’ve included 20 of our “real” ladies-to-watch on this very list.

Autostraddle picks are conveniently labeled in GREEN.

    • 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?
