Alison Goldfrapp

Alison Goldfrapp is a musician who is the singer and co-songwriter of the band Goldfrapp. In an interview with The Times in February 2010, she confirmed she was dating film editor, Lisa Gunning, but didn't like being labelled a lesbian, saying, "I think of everything as being about a person and a relationship, and I am in a wonderful relationship with a wonderful person. It just happens to be with a lady."

Here on Lesbian of the Day, we love labelling ladies as lesbian if they, you know, have sex with women and stuff. So congrats, Alison!

Goldfrapp have just released their fifth album, Head First.

Cynthia Nixon

Cynthia Nixon became a huge star in the nineties as one of the four friends on Sex In The City. In 2004 she began dating Christine Marinoni and has become an outspoken activist for gay marriage and parenting rights. A few days ago she wrote an excellent article on the Huffington Post about the defeat of gay marriage legislation in the New York Senate.

Because you never know when a simple conversation can help change someone's heart and mind. Because if we keep at it "they" will finally realize that we're just people like them. Because time is on our side.

Meredith Baxter

The inaugural lesbian of the day, who has inspired me to start this blog, is Meredith Baxter, former star of "Family Ties". Meredith bravely came out on national television today, with these words:

This is a political act. If anybody knows someone who is gay or lesbian... they're less likely to vote against them, to take away their rights. So if you knew me before, and you cared about me before, I'm the same woman... I can be that lesbian you know now.
