I'm Fao. I'm a 24 year old kitchen witch who doesn't really identify with either femme or butch (I guess 'butchy femme' might fit? idk).

I really like the poetry of Sappho. I'm trying to learn how to write using that format.

Most of the lesbian media I consume consists of shipping minor background characters from shows, but I've enjoyed the canon stuff we do have these days. One of the long-standing f/f couples in Homestuck got married in the end. Steven Universe is nice, even if the quality of the show is kinda declining a bit. Carmilla is great, though I'm way behind on that.

Nice to meet everyone. :)

Hi! I'm Opal. Not really, but that's been my online name for a long time. I took it from my great aunt because, when I was a teenager, I found one of her scrapbooks (she was already gone) and discovered all these pics of her dressed in suits hanging out with flappers. So I feel like we probably would've had a lot in common if I had known her back then. I have been with my wife E for 19 years. We met when we both started teaching.

I will read pretty much any book that has lesbians in it. I'm always on the lookout for lesbian YA and, when it's middle grade level, I put it in my classroom library after I'm done reading it. Over the years, I have had lots of students surreptitiously borrow my LGBTQ books (fiction and non-fiction) and a few kids have come out to me.

I really love America Chavez (and pretty much all of the women of Marvel).

I'm 30 years old Scottish Pagan who lives with her girlfriend and two cats. I'm also a library assistant and I read many LGBT+ books in the hopes of recommending them to people.

Outside of films exploring lesbian relationships and feelings, I like supporting shippings and pairings in various media. I'm always looking for suggestions for good lesbian media.

Hey, I'm 26, live in the southeast US, and right now the biggest thing in my life is trying to find a job (I might have one already but I'm waiting for more information!) and helping take care of a sick family member. It sounds very exciting, I'm sure... :P

I love to consume just about all types of media although I'm pretty casual about it and never contribute to fandoms. I used to love to draw but rarely ever drew fanart and haven't been in the mood to create anything lately. I'm trying to get myself interested again so maybe I can draw lesbian comics or illustrations! If I do, maybe I'll post some here.

Anyway, about lesbian media... I feel like we're so starved for Good Content!! I like little rarepairs here and there - right now my favorite is Pansy Parkinson/Millicent Bulstrode from Harry Potter. Half the time I end up inventing OCs for shows/books/etc that I like just to ship them with the female characters (or make up more characters to ship them with - I have a Game of Thrones AU in my head about a women-only group/camp/whatever of wildlings who like the FIGHT and HUNT, you know, GIRL STUFF, and it's all very gay).

@ mod - I wasn't sure I wanted to watch JtV or Supergirl but now you've convinced me. 8)

Sappho is my HOMEGIRL. <3 I highly recommend Anne Carson's translation of her poetry!

Hello! I'm saintbounty, I'm 25 and I work in IT in Pennsylvania, USA.

When I was a wee baby gay I was really into anime, mostly Simoun and Utena. Nowadays most of the gay-specific media I consume is crappy YA novels and Radclyffe romances- I'm not very good at keeping up with TV, I need to resume watching Skins UK.

Mostly I enjoy video games- right now the only relevant game I'm playing is Overwatch (I'm like 5000 words into writing a Tracer/Widowmaker fanfic but I like Mercy/Pharah more). I also liked Tomb Raider (2013).

I like comics, too- right now I'm reading The Wicked and the Divine, Unconvent, Dumbing of Age, and Balderdash! (list trimmed to only the gay-related things).

Nice to meet y'all!

Hi there, Im a Sunshine State lesbian and Im trying to get back into making friends on the internet LOL. I suck at keeping up with people, but I enjoy short boosts of social interaction.

Im married to my highschool sweetheart, and in true stereotypical fashion she and I have two cats, two dogs (three of which have health issues because of course they do lol)

I am annoyed by most fandoms, so I am a little quiet about my personal fandoms at times, but it doesnt take me much to get talking about them ;)

I hope you are all having a great day :)
