10. Portia DeRossi
Granted she hasn't made much in the way of movies since becoming Mrs. Ellen DeGeneres, but DeRossi's moving memoir about her life long struggle with eating disorders had us, Oprah, and her wife all in tears.
Her terrifying tale of maniacally sprinting through the parking lot of the Beverly Center in platform heels in order to burn off 60 calories worth of gum still keeps us up nights.
9. Anna Paquin
True Blood star and Oscar-winning actress Anna Paquin came out as bisexual in an LGBT equality Public Service Announcement made by wegiveadamn.org.
Sure, True Blood is already pretty gay but Paquin reportedly did this on her own, surprising even her publicity people. That deserves some hardcore lez, don't Anna Paquin you think?Photo Credit: Jason LaVeris/GettyImages

7. Jane Lynch
Yes we love Jane for her role on Glee and her quirky Christopher Guest film roles but on a recent visit to Bill Maher's show the 35-year-old actress did a dramatic reading of Anthony Weiners sext messages that upped her fabulosity by about a thousand.

6. Christine Quinn

3. Rachel Maddow
Known super hero Rachel Maddow single-handedly defeats conservative villians, mercilessly teases talking head nut-jobs, and exposes creepy conspiracies every night on her extremely popular television show.
The 38-year-old Rhodes Scholar's wit is so sharp, many of her most notorious foes have declined to be interviewed by her.
2. Dee Rees
Dee Rees is the much talked-about director behind Pariah, the film fest favorite that was picked up for distribution by Focus Films at Sundance this year.
The film, which chronicles the coming-of-age story of Alike, a 17-year-old newly out black butch lesbian, is at least partially autobiographical. Rees has said that the film's title comes from her struggle to fit in and the confusion she felt about how to present herself in the queer world.
The fact that more than 3.000,000 have watched Kreayshawn's ''Gucci Gucci'' on Youtube.com means GucciGucci LouieLouie FendiFendi Prada is probably running through your head as you read this.
In fact, rumor has it the 21-year-old Oakland MC just signed a major record deal. Kreayshawn told Complex magazine, ''I'm not a raging lesbian I'm an occasional lesbian.''
Whatever that means, she sums herself up pretty well with the rhyme, ''I've got swag and it's coming out my ovaries.''
