It’s National Kissing Day, and in honor of it we’ve rounded up some of the most sensual, romantic and sexy lesbian celebrity kisses ever. You’ll be drooling before you know it.
Before we get to the good stuff, let’s have a quick look at some of the earliest – and most famous – same-sex kiss scenes in cinema history. It’s a good reminder that same-sex relationships have been around for ages, and it’s only a matter of time before they’re more commonplace.
1. Betty Cooper & Veronica Lodge
Betty Cooper is the best friend and romantic interest of Veronica Lodge. She was created by Bob Montana and first appeared in Pep Comics #22 in 1941.
While Betty is often portrayed as the wholesome girl next door, she has also been known to be quite manipulative and sharp-tongued. Moreover, her character is very different from her counterpart, Veronica Lodge.
2. Isobel Evans & Blaire
Isobel Evans (Lily Cowles) isn’t exactly a new face in Roswell, New Mexico. However, her latest romance with a bartender named Blaire has been pretty interesting.
Isobel doesn’t seem to see her relationship with Blaire as an endgame, but it’s clear she’s enjoying herself. She’s just learning how to explore and find out what she really wants. It’s definitely a fun and exciting adventure!
3. Ally McBeal & Ling Woo
One of the most successful sexed-up legal shows ever to hit television was Ally McBeal. The show was able to get high ratings due to its sensational kissing scenes, which helped attract young female viewers.
Ling Woo, a character on the show portrayed by Lucy Liu, was a hot topic among viewers. She breaks many of the stereotypes of Asian women in America.
4. Julia Salinger & Perry Marks
During a short-lived 1999 storyline, Julia Salinger (Neve Campbell) planted one on character Perry Marks. The kiss did not result in a lesbian relationship, but it did show that gay culture was starting to come to a mainstream audience.
The show centered on the five Salinger siblings, who are orphans following their parents’ death. The family includes Charlie, the eldest, who has womanizing tendencies; Bailey, the teen-aged caretaker; Julia, a sensitive teen; Claudia, an eleven-year-old violin prodigy; and Owen, a baby.
5. Rachel Green & Melissa Warburton
Rachel Greene is one of the best characters on Friends. She’s gorgeous, smart and always makes the right choices.
Her first kiss is with Chandler in the show’s pilot episode, but she has also been romantically involved with Ross and Joey. She has even kissed Monica in flashback episodes, but she’s never officially been on a date with her.
7. Carrie Bradshaw & Dawn
During Carrie’s first trip to LA, she meets Aidan Shaw, a furniture designer. He’s a laid-back, low-key nature lover who is patient, straightforward and somewhat traditional in his relationship with her.
When he tells her that he’s bisexual, she dismisses it immediately. But then she plays spin-the-bottle and a girl named Dawn lands on her — a kiss that freaks Carrie out enough to make her leave the party.
8. Ally McBeal & Georgia Thomas
Ally McBeal is still one of the hottest shows on television. The sexy legal drama starred Courtney Thorne-Smith and has become an international hit.
However, Thorne-Smith left the show last year. She revealed in an interview that she had to quit because she was struggling with her weight and body image.
9. Rachel Green & Phoebe Buffay
Rachel Green from “Friends” is one of the most iconic characters of the 1990s and early 2000s. She was the only character to kiss every member of the main crew.
Her first kiss was with Chandler Bing, and her second was with Ross Geller. She also had a one-episode romance with physicist David (Hank Azaria).
10. Riverdale & Betty Cooper
Riverdale is an idealized American town that’s been frozen in time – think soda shops and adolescent love triangles.
The show focuses on Archie Andrews (KJ Apa), Betty Cooper, and Veronica Lodge as they navigate their new world of high school life in Riverdale.
It’s no surprise that the cast includes a number of queer characters, from teen biker gang members like Joaquin to Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz, as well as openly gay Kevin Keller.
