List of famous lesbians and bisexual women along with their biographies that include trivia, interesting facts, and life history.

What do television host Ellen DeGeneres, actress Ruby Rose, and former World No. 1 tennis champion Martina Navratilova have in common in addition to being super successful women in a predominantly man’s world? All of them are lesbians and totally proud of their sexuality! In a world where members of the LGBTQ community are constantly harassed and ridiculed for their sexuality, it is not an easy task to carve a niche for oneself and build a successful life. It is even more difficult for women given the sexist attitudes prevalent in our society. Yet there are women who not only broke through the glass ceilings in male-dominant fields but also overcame the challenges of belonging to the sexual minority. With rising awareness about LGBTQ rights, life is getting relatively easier for lesbians yet we can’t ignore the struggles they go through! In the modern era, several LGBTQ rights activists have emerged on YouTube to spread awareness and offer support to the audience members belonging to such groups. Read on for more information about famous lesbians.
