22 Lesbian Couples On TV That We All Need To Talk About More

We love girls who like girls.

I recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell me what WLW couples we need to talk about more. Here's what they said, and yes I'll be watching every single one of these shows now.

1. Casey and Izzie from Atypical


"I love Casey and Izzie from Atypical! They made me feel all tingly every time they were on the screen! And I still don’t know if I’m gay or a lesbian or anything under the rainbow, I just know they made me happy!"


2. Catra and Adora from She-Ra And The Princesses of Power


"I honestly think they’re one of the greatest love stories ever. Their relationship is so complex and well-written that you can really see how it's essentially the core of the entire show. If you were to remove their relationship, it would completely change the whole story. Without a doubt, they are one of the prime examples of the best friends-to-enemies-to-lovers TV trope. I’m not even kidding when I say that their kiss/confession scene lives in my mind rent free 24/7."


"I am IN LOVE with Catra and Adora from Netflix’s She-ra And The Princesses Of Power!!! THE GAY ENERGY IS ASTRONOMICAL!!"


3. Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe from Legends of Tomorrow


"They have the healthiest relationship. On top of that, they're enemies to friends to lovers, and now they're engaged!"


"One’s a time-traveling former assassin raised from the dead; the other is a clone who “went rogue” and developed her own personality. They are couple goals."


4. Princess Bubblegum and Marceline from Adventure Time

Cartoon Network

"The development of their relationship (both platonically and romantically) was so amazing to see throughout the series, and the fact that they helped each other grow and mature is something that was so sweet to watch!"


5. Dani and Jamie from The Haunting of Bly Manor


"Dani and Jamie from The Haunting of Bly Manor live in my mind rent free 24/7. Their love for each other was everything I’d ever wanted to see represented in an on-screen lesbian relationship."


6. Patsy and Delia from Call the Midwife


"Patsy and Delia from Call the Midwife will always be my favorite TV lesbians. They have such a sweet, supportive relationship, and they bring out the best in each other. It's also a really beautiful depiction of queer history that, like everything on Call the Midwife, is done with love and sensitivity, and historical accuracy."


7. Max and Anne from Black Sails


"Absolutely fantastic representation, goes against the 'bury your gays' trope, shows the nuances of identity, love, and power in a period-appropriate way. And they're both such incredible characters, who show strength and power in opposite ways."


8. Ruby and Christina from Lovecraft Country


"DJEESH! Abbey Lee 👏🏽Wunmi Mosaku 👏🏽! Their Chemistry was 💥. It mostly was the dominant looks of Abbey Lee that made me weak in the knees, but together they made it perfect. (Let's forget, for a second, it was all toxic from beginning to end.)"


9. Dominique and Darlene from Mr. Robot


"Am I the only Mr. Robot fan? Dominique and Darlene were an amazing couple! I loved when the classic cop-criminal dynamic became romantic."


10. Brittany and Santana from Glee


"They were adorable together and the healthiest couple on that show. Just amazing!"


11. Cosima and Delphine from Orphan Black

BBC America

"No couple is better than Cosima and Delphine from Orphan Black. Gorgeous women who are also super smart. Great representation and totally amazing."


12. Waverly and Nicole from Wynonna Earp


"Waverly Earp and Nicole Haught from Wynonna Earp! Their relationship is the first wlw one I've seen that really seemed real and healthy, and they are just the cutest together! Also, both of the actresses are queer in real life!"


13. Bridget and Franky from Wentworth


"They live rent free in my mind."


14. Sterling and April from Teenage Bounty Hunters


15. Madame Vastra and Jenny on Doctor Who


"The line "Good evening. I'm a Lizard Woman from the Dawn of Time, and this is my wife" was just perfect."


16. Toni and Shelby from The Wilds


"Enemies to lovers and their chemistry is off the charts."


17. Lily and Ola from Sex Education


"Although they didn't get together until around the end of season 2 they just had the best chemistry, far better than Ola had with Otis. You knew they were right for each other. I can't wait to see where their relationship goes in season 3 and onward."


18. Stef and Lena from The Fosters


"Everyone always says they’re toxic but I love them! When I first saw the show, I was a preteen growing up with two moms. Seeing kids on TV in the same situation made me feel so good!"


19. Anne Lister and Ann Walker in Gentleman Jack

20. Fran and Em from Shrill


" 💜💜"


21. Nomi and Amanita from Sense8


"Also Sense8 in general. There’s nothing heterosexual about this show."


22. George and Mae from Feel Good


"Not gonna lie, sometimes their relationship gives me anxiety but I also love them so much. The way they learn from each other and care for one another. It's pure and feels so real. I'm also jealous because I want to date George, but whatever. I'll be so sad if they ever break up (yes I KNOW IT'S NOT REAL)."
