Lesbihonest, Female Couples on TV Teach Us a Lot About Romance

After countless headlines, we’ve recently seen Shonda Rhimes take the heat for the seriously sexual gay scenes in her show How To Get Away With Murder. In return, she tells everyone to stick it where the sun don’t shine. As she rightfully should. Because of shows like Orange Is the New Black and entertainment pioneers like Rhimes, LGBT couples on television have finally moved further away from taboo and closer to the norm. At the end of the day, love is love and we’re focusing on the lady loves who prove just that.

On TV, there has been a lesbian marriage on Grey’s Anatomy (again, thanks to Rhimes), short flings such as on The O.C. and supernatural love back in the day of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. During Buffy’s run, Alyson Hannigan said her character’s relationship was “[n]ot about being controversial or making a statement. It’s about two people who care about each other,” which is ultimately all that matters, right? Whether shows were purposefully trying to create change or not, including these female relationships helped teach lessons about love that can be applied to anyone regardless of sexual orientation. Read on for the best of lesbian relationships in TV and the lessons we learned from them.
