Let’s face it: Maxim doesn’t cater to lesbians. In fact, you could say it flies in the face of all that we hold dear, especially when it declares Lindsay Lohan the hottest of them all, as it did when it published The Maxim Hot 100 List last month. So we asked you, our readers, to create your own list of hotties, and you came out in droves to nominate the women you think deserve to be on the AfterEllen.com Hot 100 List. Thousands of votes later, we have the results.
Clearly, what straight men and lesbians find sexy in a woman is a little bit different.
“Hot” for lesbians and bisexual women comes in all ages, sizes, colors, and styles, as the variety of women on our list demonstrates â€” from Tina Fey (No. 7) and Helen Mirren (No. 31), to Ellen DeGeneres (No. 50), America Ferrera (No. 30) and Queen Latifah (No. 55). There’s even a conservative Republican (Angie Harmon, No. 82), proving we can still find a women sexy even if we don’t agree with her alternative lifestyle choice.
Number 1 is Leisha Hailey, of The L Word.
