Celebrating black lesbian love and relationships!

Slide Show: Famous Black Lesbians & The Women Who Love Them

I didn’t grow up seeing stories of women in love. The books, magazine articles and movies I saw, all included a man and a woman. Imagine my excitement when I started seeing more same-sex couples in the media, especially famous lesbians. While seeing famous women publicly honoring, loving and supporting their female partners, I had to admit, I was always especially excited to see a black lesbian among them—someone like me!

Below is a gallery of famous black women and the women who love them! If I’m missing a couple, please let me know and I’ll happily add them. Click any picture to scroll through the gallery.
