Hey, all you single ladies — throw your hands up!

We've almost completed our poll of the most-desired eligible lady-loving-ladies, but you've got one more chance to make your voice heard! You can keep voting for your favorites through Sunday, March 31.

As it stands, newly out Oscar-winner Jodie Foster is leading the contest, followed closely by American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson, with Californian filmmaker and author Roberta Munroe closing out the top-three spot.  

Following in the footsteps of our sibling site Out.com, we've collected 21 of our favorite out, eligible lesbian and bisexual ladies, and present them here for your perusal. To the best of our knowledge, each of these ladies are currently on the market, but if you happen to be dating one of them, well, congratulations! And shoot us an email or a comment and let us know who's spoken for. Now, without further ado, we present all the single (gay) ladies!

Jodie Foster

Two-time Oscar nominee Jodie Foster came out kind of, sort of officially, if not in a roundabout manner, while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement at this year's Golden Globes. Following Robert Downey Jr.’s introduction of Jodie and her work, she took to the stage for a fairly straightforward speech until about halfway through when she hushed the room saying she had an “announcement.” Just as she had the audience on the edge of their seats she said, “I’m single.” Vote here!

Kate McKinnon

The blonde funny lady steals our hearts on a weekly basis, and we bet there are a few of you who would like to co-star in your very own Sunday Morning Live episode with McKinnon. Vote here!

Guinevere Turner should look familiar if you consider yourself a movie buff. The out actress has starred in Go Fish and American Psycho, in addition to the indie flick Who's Afraid of Vagina Woolf? (Yes, that really does read Vagina Woolf.)

Lori Lindsey

Out American soccer player Lori Lindsey might not be quite as recognizable as her teammate Megan Rapinoe, but the midfielder is still a smoking-hot national champion who currently plays for the Washington Spirit, is a member of the U.S. National Women's team, and was an alternate for Team USA at the 2012 Olympic. Lindsay was born in Indiana, and her teammates have nicknamed her "Lightning" — probably because that's what it feels like in your heart when you look at her. Vote here!

Dr. Michelle Jack

Dr. Michelle Jack is a veterinarian who grew up in Southern California, but attended college at the women-only Mount Holyoke in western Massachusetts. She came out her junior year at Holyoke, and says she hasn't looked back since. After earning her graduate degree in veterinary medicine from the Ohio State College, she moved back to Southern California, where she now serves critters of all kinds at her Santa Monica practice. Ever the do-gooder, Dr. Jack also makes a regular pilgrimage to Manzanillo, Mexico, to participate in a five-day spay-and-neuter clinic that sterilizes approximately 100 cats or dogs each day. Dr. Jack previously hosted an animal advice video blog right here on SheWired. Though she has a cozy home with two senior cats and five-year-old Whippet mix, Dr. Jack is on the hunt for a partner who shares her enjoyment spending time with friends, biking around Venice beach, surfing, tasting wine, eating sushi, and riding her motorcycle. Vote here!

Mariah Hanson

Mariah Hanson knows how to round up the lesbians. As the founder of the original Dinah Shore Weekend (and still a primary coordinator), Hanson might be the foremost event promoter who bats for our team. Shesits on the "Women's Night" committee for the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, according to the Huffington Post. Not only is Hanson an outspoken advocate for LGBT equality, she also loves horses — as demonstrated by the lovely equine-inclusive portrait above. Vote here!

Laura Petracca

As the fierce drummer and resident wild child for out rock trio Hunter Valentine, you might say Laura Petracca is an expert at banging things… rhythmically. That, along with her photo above, is probably enough to land her on readers' most-wanted lists. In case you need more, though, note that Petracca also appeared on The Real L Word (along with fellow bandmate Kiyomi McCloskey), where she got wasted and half-naked on the streets of New York. You can't tell us you wouldn't like to throw back a few shots with this girl and see where the night takes you... Vote here!

Dalila Ali Rajah

 

Dalila Ali Rajah created and produces Cherry Bomb, and describes herself on Cherry Bomb's site as "a wonderful mixture of sandalwood, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper." Yum. The actress, poet, dancer and spoken-word artist is also a mom who paints and life-coaches through her fabulously named Faerie Card Readings and energetic healing work. Raise your hand (and click her name below) if you'd be happy to have Rajah do some work on you... Vote here!

Krysten Sinema

When Krysten Sinema was announced victorious in her campaign to be elected to represent Arizona's ninth district shortly after the November 2012 election, she made history as the first openly bisexual person to serve in the U.S. Congress. Perhaps it's the pressure of politics, a healthy dose of cultural biphobia, or just poor timing that has Sinema on our singles' list, but regardless, we're glad she's here, and in Washington representing the oft-forgotten "B" in LGBT. Vote here!

Fortune Feimster

Fortune Feimster is the out comic behind Chelsea Lately, best known for hilarious sketches taking on Honey Boo Boo, Cher, and doing a "lesbian love dance" with Happy Endings star Casey Wilson.

Tammy Baldwin

Wisconsin's Tammy Baldwin made history when she became the first openly gay U.S. Senator last year, after defeating her Republican opponent, former governor Tommy Thompson. But while Baldwin is gaying up the U.S. Senate in Washington, we wonder who's loving up the Senator in her down-time. Any volunteers? Vote here!

Jessie J

 

Bisexual British pop star Jessie J (whose full name is Jessica Ellen Cornish) has to constantly defend her bisexuality from losers who think the orientation doesn't exist, but perhaps a new lovely lady on her arm would quell some of those doubts that she's really just a straight girl "experimenting." Of course, Jessie told Glamour last year that "Music is the love of my life right now," so whoever gets her might have some competition. Vote here!

Sometimes it just doesn't get much better than the original. k.d. lang made history when she came out in The Advocate in 1992, paving the way for stars around the country to peek their heads out of the closet. And since lang and her former partner, Jamie Price, formally separated last year, the classic crooner is once again on the market. Vote here!

Cynthia Assam

We're generally fans of Autostraddle's calendar girls, but when the queer ladies posted these photos of Cynthia Assam, we just about melted off our chairs. Assam, a.k.a. Miss January, tells AS that she's a Capricorn, and a recent graduate from the University of Iowa who is single and ready to mingle. Though she lamented the lack of queer ladies in Iowa, I'd be willing to bet there are some SheWired leaders who would be happy to show Assam the gayer sides of Iowa. And hey, if it goes really well, at least you could get married there! (We here in California aren't bitter. Nope. Not at all.) Vote here!

Tig Notaro

We've known Tig Notaro is a funny lady for years, but right now the whole world knows. Notaro's 2012 was nothing but eventful: a deadly intestinal infection, the unexpected death of her mother, and getting out of a rough relationship, all before being diagnosed with breast cancer. All of those things came to a head at a now-legendary set at Largo in Los Angeles, where fellow comedian Louis C.K. called it one of the best sets he's ever witnessed during his career. Notaro is on the mend, and still has that razor-sharp sense of humor. Vote here!

Cherry Jones

Cherry Jones is an Emmy-award winning actress who played the President on 24,  and made history in 1995 when she became the first person to thank a partner when accepting a Tony Award. She's been a little less lucky in love, though, and we're certain there are plenty of SheWired readers who would be happy to get up close and personal with this Cherry. Vote here!

Her do-it-yourself approach to performing, producing shows, and teaching stand-up courses has helped the city of Buffalo, New York, become a contender in the comedy scene.

Samantha Ronson

Samantha Ronson might be perpetually linked to Lindsey Lohan as far as the tabloids are concerned, but as far as we know, the out DJ is actually single. Last year, she released her first solo album, Chasing The Red. A personal album, the record features songs exploring heartbreak, press and media attention, and the all-out fun of rock and roll. Who's ready to step into the booth to mix it up with Ronson? Vote here!
