Here are the 12 hottest and most romantic lesbian kisses from TV and film

It’s nearly Valentine’s Day (or that Saturday which happens to be 14 February if you’d prefer to think of it that way), so what better time to sit on the couch, grab some ice cream, and watch some lesbian love?

We asked GSN readers on Twitter and Facebook to come up with their favorite lesbian kisses from TV and film, and they did not disappoint.

From full on sex in prison to first kisses on soaps, these 12 couples have been made into lesbian icons for these roles.

Missed out your favorite moment? Be sure to leave a comment and let others know what to watch next.

Imagine Me And You

Long before Lena Headey was making out with her on-screen brother in Game of Thrones and a bit after Piper Parabo was dancing on bars in Coyote Ugly, they met in this 2006 film. Finally, a lesbian drama comedy that ends well. Do you dare to love it?

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Willow Tara

Alyson Hannigan and Amber Benson as Willow and Tara were one of the first mainstream gay couples on TV, and they’re still a favorite. One of the strongest relationships on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, their first on-screen kiss was in the emotionally devastating episode The Body.

We’re still annoyed about Kennedy.

Desert Hearts

This 1985 film that starred Helen Shaver and Patricia Charbonneau broke new ground, purely because it was one of the first times two women together on screen were not the product of some male director’s fingernailed, blonde hair and big boobs fantasy.

The Fosters

Who would have thought one of the best portrayals of a gay wedding would have ever appeared on ABC Family? This Jennifer Lopez produced show ticked all of our boxes.


Angelina Jolie, who plays model Gia, and Elizabeth Mitchell, a make-up artist, play out this tragic love story. How can you not fall in love with Angelina?

Elena Undone

In 2010, this broke the record for the longest kiss in movie history. Impressive, purely because of that.

Blue Is The Warmest Color

Sex scenes aside, this is a great movie with two amazing and adorable leads in Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux.

The L Word

Yes, hundreds of good kisses could have been chosen out of The L Word, but there was one that took it. This first one between Jenny and Niki is ridiculous hot, so that’s why it wins.

I Can’t Think Straight

I Can’t Think Straight is the story of Jordanian Tala, played by Lisa Ray, who, while planning her wedding to a man, falls in love with Leyla, played by Sheetal Sheth. This moment when they finally kiss is amazing.


More than 20 years ago, Brookside became the first UK soap to air a pre-watershed lesbian kiss. And in 2012, it made history again: It was the first gay kiss to be shown in Saudi Arabia, as it featured in the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony. Now that’s a reason for a fireworks (Sorry for the sound effects near the end, this was the best quality we could find).

All My Children

10 years after Brookside, the US aired its own first lesbian kiss. While it wasn’t the most passionate, it was definitely satisfying: You could hear the homophobes screaming in horror from miles away.

Orange Is The New Black

Piper Alex

And this is what it led to, when Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Alex (Laura Prepon) kissed for the first time in the present during season 1. So, so, so good.
