    • I do have a lbtgq role model cause I’m trans but my role model isn’t on this quiz . My lbtgq role model is Jojo Siwa watching her talk about the lbtgq on YouTube helped me a lot cause before watching her lbtgq videos on YouTube I was scared to tell my parents that I’m trans

  1. I got Callie but I’ve never seen Grey’s Anatomy because I don’t watch medical dramas because I always think I’m dying or have some underlying health condition. I’m werid, I know.

    • Same here. Though I think I do actually live “south of nowhere”! I told new neighbor (obnoxious straight white guy)—“Welcome to nowhere” so there’s that.

    • I used to recap SON on my old recap blog that doesn’t exist anymore!! in retrospect, it may have been VERY bad, but also; it was the first time i saw two teen girls dating each other on television!

  2. Kima from The Wire. I could not afford HBO in the 2000s, but no idea why I never watched the series later on.

  3. “You’re Callie from Grey’s Anatomy! Congrats on being fun, hot and successful!”

    did i perhaps game the system? perhaps! but i’m rewatching grey’s and am in some Prime callie torres territory

  4. ” I don’t know what to do with my life but will get very upset if my partner shares any ideas or advice that could help me fix this or any problem”
    I picked this answer because it’s very accurate, but it’s also very rude!

  5. I was certain my *actual ortho goddess* ortho resident fiancee would get Callie but somehow we both got Spencer from South of Nowhere — which also works because that show (specifically Ashley) was her root

  6. I got Bette Porter, who I also had as a quiz answer for who was going to ruin my life… that tracks

  7. Got Willow,yes!even if i didnt pick the “Blood sucking fiend” Quote but choosing tara as my girl.

    Speaking of that: cant figure out some quotes:

    The tv series quotes:1 buffy (willow)
    6 sex and the city
    ( samantha)
    8.OG l word ( bette)
    7 maybe ally mc beal

    the others i dont know , anyone,help??

    Im sympathetic to britney, esp in the last 10 years,but only liked 4 songs,as Im more of a indie rock girl and for popmusic prefered other women than brit: toxic , slave ,circus, and not a girl,not yet a woman .
    the latter is missing in the lyric quote identify as its really the most iconic. Was quoted in hbo girls / in dunham interviews

  8. Spencer! 16yo lil lezzy me would’ve loved to have a gf like Ashley. Any gf really, lol.

    Thanks to South of Nowhere I discovered musical genius LP 🎤
