As students around the country get ready to head back to their college campuses, we here at SheWired have enjoyed reflecting on some of our formative same-sex experiences. While some of us figured out our love for women early — say, at summer camp — there's undoubtedly just as many of us who didn't get the memo until college.
And then, of course, there's the uniquely collegiate phenomenon of the "Lesbian Until Graduation," affectionately known as a LUG. Don't lie — we've all fallen for that girl at one point… Or who knows, maybe we were that LUG. Regardless, we figured Fall was a good time to reflect on some of our favorite pop-culture collegiate lesbians, even if some of them were just LUGs. Read on to find clips and photos of our favorite sapphic co-eds — we'll call them honorary members of the Delta Gayta Sappha sorority.
Rebecca Logan (Dilshad Vadsaria) — ABC Family's Greek
Without question, the leader of DGS has simply got to be Rebecca Logan from ABC Family's college dramadey Greek. The daughter of a wealthy but scandal-laden senator, we first met Rebecca as a snobby, privileged princess who's hell-bent on taking over the top-ranked sorority Zeta Beta Zeta at the fictional Cyprus Rhodes University, located in a suspiciously temperate Ohio town. (Seriously, did it ever snow at CRU in the show's seven seasons?) But as the series progresses, we learn more about Rebecca, played by the gorgeous Dilshad Vadsaria, and find ourselves sympathetic to her neglected past, leading to her guarded present. After a series of failed relationships with frat boys, Rebecca kisses a leggy redhead and former ZBZ sister at a bachelorette party in the second season, and then proudly proclaiming to her entire house "I'm a lesbian now." But after one awkward date and a heart-to-heart with Greek's main gay protagonist, popular-guy Calvin, Rebecca realizes she isn't ready to register her gay card just yet.
But re-watching that initial kiss, we can see why Rebecca was swayed. See for yourself below:
