Brandy Clark 1
Nashville didn’t welcome Clark’s lesbian coming out with open arms but her courage in being honest about her sexuality in a notoriously hostile environment (openly gay musician Steve Grand has been virtually ignored by the country music world) makes her extra appealing. With her strong vocals and captivating lyrics, Clark’s single status makes her a top date choice.
Tig Notaro 2
Ladies who love to laugh but also seek a partner with intelligence and heart will be glad to know Notaro is once again on the eligible list after years in a long-term relationship. The celebrated comic and writer based in New York City is also the professional best friend of funny lady Sarah Silverman, a relationship that lends itself to interesting stories and industry insights.
Sarah Paulson 3
With brilliant leading roles on stage as well as in television and movies, bicoastal Paulson’s most memorable performances include playing a myriad of characters on American Horror Story as well as outstanding parts on American Gothic and Deadwood. Her long-term relationship with impressive actress Cherry Jones (who played the President of the United States on 24) ended in 2005 but Paulson has been so busy with her career, there hasn’t been a lot of time to date. In fact, she’s in the middle of shooting American Crime Story (being produced by genius Ryan Murphy, who is behind American Horror Story), so those interested are forewarned that Paulson’s time is tight.
Lori Lindsey 4
If your tastes run toward athletic types, Lindsey is a top contender. Playing for the Washington Spirit soccer team, Lindsey’s always in top physical shape and considered a real catch for ladies looking for a woman who can hold her own both on the field and off. But she’s very recognizable, especially on the East Coast, so be ready to deal with paparazzi as well as devoted fans if you go out on the town and visit popular hot spots.
No longer attached to her last name of Livingston, AzMarie first gained attention as a top challenger on America’s Next Top Model: British Invasion in 2012. She used that notoriety to land a role in the acclaimed movie Precious and cut an album. Her androgynous persona and artful tattoos turn heads and she’s rumored to be a close friend of Raven Symone, so suitors need to be ready for lots of attention if you step out with this lady on your arm.
Jane Lynch 6
Arguably one of the funniest actresses both on and off screen, Lynch recently emerged from a messy – and expensive – divorce from her psychologist wife after only three years of wedded non-bliss. But Lynch is still smiling after a settlement that cost her close to $2.5 million, although she may be a bit shy about tying the knot again soon; she even lost the couple’s dog in the deal. Lynch’s time on Glee is dwindling as the show winds down but she has another hit with Hollywood Game Night, a rollicking competition where celebrity panel members swig cocktails as they compete. Lynch seems like the perfect match for a lady who likes to laugh but also has an IQ she’s proud to share.
Ellen Page 7
When Page burst onto the silver screen in the quirky blockbuster Juno as a pregnant teenager, she charmed audiences with her fresh delivery and comic timing, a role that earned her an Oscar nomination. Page upstaged herself when she came out as a lesbian on Valentine’s Day 2014, claiming she couldn’t take the pressure of lying about her sexuality any longer. The petite 27-year-old has indicated she’s ready to date, so if you’re looking for a lovely lady with outspoken views on a solid career path (20+ movies and TV appearances to her credit just since Juno), Page might be the perfect match.
Kyrsten Sinema 8
Sinema, a U.S. Representative from Arizona, is a self-proclaimed bisexual, the first openly bisexual person ever elected to Congress. She’s diligently campaigned against her state’s anti-same-sex marriage and civil union propositions, so would-be suitors should be prepared to engage in politically driven conversations with Sinema.
Kate McKinnon 9
As Saturday Night Live‘s first openly lesbian cast member, McKinnon has won a slew of awards for her contributions to the show, most notably her celebrity impressions of over 20 famous people including Justin Bieber, Ellen DeGeneres, Angela Lansbury, Billie Jean King, Barbara Walters, Penelope Cruz and Martha Stewart.
Tammy Baldwin 10
As the junior United States Senator from Wisconsin, Baldwin is a self-described “proud progressive” who was the first openly gay U.S. Senator in history.
